A moment of departure. A moment of return. A moment of reckoning

Irish language literature and visual poetry are combined in virtual reality, inspired by texts from Máirtín Ó Cadhain, Pádraic Ó Conaire and Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill around the theme of migration.

Brú’s team of performers, creators, designers and composers have come together to create three unique 180° films, immersing audiences in a fusion of movement, text, music and Connemara landscape through the use of VR headsets. Lose yourself in this evocative, contemporary take on some of the finest writing in the Irish language.

Ar Ais Arís is a commission as part of Galway 2020/ NUIG’s Aistriú project
