The Boxties’ new show is coming to QPAC’s Cremorne Theatre at the end of June.
At the show’s heart are traditional songs from Ireland and the UK, which the Boxties have adapted in their distinctive, contemporary style. While music is always at the core of what we do, the new show will draw directly on experiences of Boxties’ families and friends, personalising the music’s themes of longing and loss, belonging and memory, and extrapolating from their own family histories to the plight of the displaced today.
The show will also use strong theatrical, spoken word and audio-visual elements to amplify the music’s immediacy and impact.
More information to come soon.
