Devised by Smashing Times Theatre

Cast: Mark Flynn, Paul Nolan, Evelyn Shaw, Margaret Toomey, Adam Traynor

The Troubles seen through the eyes of the rap, hip-hop, dance generation, Uprising juxtaposes stories from the past with contemporary music and rap in an epic, cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary production fusing text, movement, compelling pop-music, modern dance and the rapping of ancestral voice. A young DJ attempts to lose himself through music and dance as the flag protests rage outside. His friend argues with his ‘passivity', he challenges her ‘call to arms'.

A truly unique performance exploring memories and experiences of war in Northern Ireland and internationally.

Performance is followed by post-show discussions with the artists and invited guest speaker including Jim Arbuckle, Good Relations Facilitator.
