  • Synopsis

    History by Daragh Carville

    In a quiet cafe on a normal day, Emma drops a bombshell that rocks the very foundation of Declan's happy, settled life. Passions that were never allowed to blossom are suddenly acknowledged and there is nowhere to hide. 

    Hiatus by John McCann, Jonathan Bailie, Vedrana Klepica and Ivor Martinic

    A photograph captures a moment forever. A song invokes memories of a simpler time. Stories are created, passed on and turned into history. We hold on to what we believe, as the world we know is twisted to breaking point. And then it all shatters. Fragments of lives hurtling through the world trying to find a foothold anywhere they can and are allowed.

    Hen devised by Patrick J O'Reilly and Hanna Slattne

    Hen's world is full of colour, play and wonder. It's an extraordinary place with no rules or limitations until suddenly someone is watching Hen's every move. Then there are the others, the ones with opinions, certainties and very particular ways.
