    “...the strain of being in two places at once, of needing to accommodate two opposing conditions of truthfulness simultaneously...” Seamus Heaney

    Two dance companies, come together to perform a new dance work that looks at the predicament of living out two conflicting states of mind at once.

  • POSTSCRIPT

    By Noelle Browne

    A poignant and humorous account based on a true story of an adopted person’s search for identity.

    “From an early age I was told I was adopted. In fairness I think my parents had no choice but to tell me, what with me being redheaded with pale skin in a family with dark skin and dark hair – it was pretty obvious that something wasn’t right…”

    “A moving story stoically enacted by Brown and Bríd Ní Neachtain, who beautifully bring to life the letters that form the linchpin of Browne’s journey…..powerful piece of work." The Irish Times
