ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:

Over the past 3 years Noelle Ní Ríagáin and Linda Cullen have been in collaboration on project called “Women in Ceremony”. The project began when we asked ourselves the question. “If women held the ceremonies what could they look like?” Inspired by Irish customs, they will use Aerial dance, floor movement and song to create a solstice cerebration, here in Killeagh.

Patrick Doyle is a Writer / Poet / Archaeologist. Everything within the realm of literature and culture floats his boat. Sharing stories, nature, sunsets and songs, there you have the earth in all its beauty and blessedness. Patrick’s greatest achievement was to witness his son being born. Patrick surely knows where a true man’s heart lay’s.

Cormac Moholly began his solo career in 2000 after leaving Belfast Circus School, from teaching youth workshops to doing street performances up and down the country. Recently his solo work is tied into Circus Factory. He gladly directs upcoming practitioners, developing both his own directorial skills and encouraging a contemporary practice in Circus Factory members. And the regular cabaret events at the Factory gives opportunity to present solo work like Cyr, Juggling, or Clown

This performance is made possible by the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme from Cork County Council & the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
