The Need for Roots

Celtic Radical are in residence at Chapter Arts Centre for the month of November 2013. 

Siriol Joyner and Ruairí Donovan are exploring the notions of cultural identity infused in language and place both in Wales and Ireland. The Need for Roots is a performance which proposes dance as a transformative and potentially revolutionary way of engaging with each other and our environment.

Ystyriwn iaith fel sylwedd.

Mae ei gyfaint yn gyson.

Rhydd fy nhafod rythm arbennig i’r ddawns.

Pwy sy’n berchen ar y tafod hwn a’r ddawns hon?

Oes modd datrys y cwlwm: trwy’r tafod, yn y corff, ar y stryd ac ar y mynydd?

Dyma ddawns sy’n cloddio’r tir a’r dychymyg.

Cad é Ceilteach le haghaidh feidhmíochta? conas is féidir linn dul i mbun ainmhí ar a dtugtar Riosca? Ag canadh an am atá caite, a éileamh ar ais ar an guth, támuid ag déanamh léarscáileanna. Fíodóireacht.
