SCOTLAND: ENDLING by Rob Heaslip
Evoking mourning rites of the Gaelic communities in Ireland and Scotland.
ENDLING is a piece of dance-theatre by Rob Heaslip, evoking mourning rites of the Gaelic communities in Ireland and Scotland. It is the first work in the trilogy A Glimpse of Flesh and Blood, which looks to re-imagine rituals surround birth, life and death of the Gaels on the north-western edge of Europe.
ENDLING is where dance, vocals, music, design and a mound of confetti re-interpret Folk Theatre to tell tales of funerary and mourning rituals, their chants, songs and practices.
