TIDAL (2020)

TIDAL is a love letter to Cork’s River Lee. It is a warning. It is a myth. It is a memory.

As Ireland’s second city faces increasing threats from rising sea levels and climate change, this devised play explores how we must grapple with both our own past and future in order to prevent ecological disaster.

Through choreographed movement, poetry and verbatim interviews with Cork locals and politicians, TIDAL is a timely response to the ongoing debate over the Lee Flood Walls proposed by Cork City Council and the damage they may wreak.

As Rivers Rise, So Must We.
