Pal o’ Me Heart

Through highly physical choreography the piece explores the developing relationship between two young men within the political turmoil of Ireland in 1916, juxtaposing the dream of national liberation with the search for personal freedom.

This adaptation for the dome was filmed on location in Pembrokeshire as well as in Newport, Cardiff and in an RAF Hangar in South Wales.  For some sections the original set was utilized which sees a dance floor flooded with water, symbolic of the Irish Sea and the two young boys developing relationship.

Pal o’ Me Heart was premiered at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh at the Dance Dome, presented by Dance Base at the Grassmarket, between 19th and 26th August 2013.
