Curated by the highly acclaimed composer, conductor and director, John O’Brien, Sea Trilogy brings together a cast of singers, dancers, directors, choreographers and designers as well as an 8-voice female ensemble and a 15-piece orchestra.
An ancient reflection on exile told through the beauty of nature. The passionate rage and desire of a pregnant widow expressed as a ‘caoineadh’. The boundless grief of island women at the loss of their men to the sea. All three works are deeply rooted to Ireland and the natural world.
