On Triumph and Trauma

Luke Murphy/Attic Projects

Saturday, June 11, 8 pm

Tickets on sale here.

U.S. premiere dance theater

Emerging in the wake of the centennial anniversary of Irelands 1916 Rising.
With a hundred years behind us we are caught with the heroes and demons of our past and, in the light of the economic collapse, the fraught uncertainty of our future. Triumph and Trauma is at once a poetic dedication to a turning point in the nations history and a rigorous examination of what Irish identity, politics and nationalism means today.

Callan Theatre, Catholic University of America
