Aisling? brings audiences on a powerful and evocative journey, tracing through music, poetry and contemporary dance, the story of our Gaeltachtaí and how these culture-rich regions inspired the leaders of the Rising in 1916; their subsequent cultural and economic demise as the newly established state abandoned rural Ireland through the doldrums of the 40’s and 50’s; the emergence of the Gaeltacht Civil Rights Movement in 1969, and then to the present day where much of what was demanded then has been achieved, but the question now is – is this enough, and where do we go from here..?
Artists include Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Johnny Óg Connolly, Méabh Ní Bheaglaíoch, Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde, Caoimhín Ó Fearghail, Pól Ó Ceannabháin & Seán Ó Flaithearta.
