Ancient Rain is an international collaboration between two game-changing artists, Camille O'Sullivan (Ireland) and Paul Kelly (Australia).

Is comhoibriú idirnáisiúnta é Ancient Rain idir beirt ealaíontóirí ceannródaíocha, Camille O’Sullivan (Éire) agus Paul Kelly (An Astráil).

Ancient Rain beguiles our perceptions of the cyclical nature of time, life and death using impressionistic theatrical song cycles based on narratives from poems written by Heaney, Yeats and Meehan.

These two game-changing artists inhabit a daisy chain of men and women, a series of individual lives and characters that coalesce into a tapestry of interconnected souls.

Musically driven by Feargal Murray (Ireland) and directed by Chris Drummond (Australia), Ancient Rain will be performed at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin on September 29th as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival, before running in Melbourne from October 12th - 15th. It will then play in 6 Australian cities in 2016/17, followed by international touring.

Produced by Far and Away Productions.

Bréagnaíonn Ancient Rain ár dtuairimí coitianta maidir le cúrsa ciorclach an tsaoil, na beatha agus an bháis ag úsáid sraitheanna amhrán téatair bunaithe ar insintí dánta de chuid Heaney, Yeats agus Meehan.

Tá slabhra nóiníní idir fhir agus mhná i gcarachtair na n-ealaíontóirí ceannródaíocha seo, sraith de shaol agus de charachtair daoine a thagann le chéile i dtaipéis anamacha a bhfuil ceangal acu go léir le chéile.

Faoi stiúir ceoil Feargal Murray (Éire) agus á stiúradh ag Chris Drummond (An Astráil), beidh Ancient Rain ar stáitse i 6 chathair san Astráil in 2016/17, agus rachaidh siad ar chamchuairt idirnáisiúnta ina dhiaidh sin.

Á léiriú ag Far and Away Productions.
