Walls Talk is a dance piece for solo dancer, Breandán de Gallaí, and singer, Gina Boreham, supported by pre-recorded arrangements of jazz classics by 2 composers.
The show title comes from the expression ‘If these walls could talk’. The work considers the notion of memory being recorded in the material world around us: all our actions, our feelings and thoughts, frozen in matter and energy, every material akin to magnetic recording tape, the disturbances we create remaining there for eternity.
Exploring universal consciousness, the idea of shared intelligence, may lead in some small way of interpreting the mysteries of our experience, and subsequently lead to increased empathy, inspiring collective awareness, connection, love.
Based on Liederkreis or song cycle structure, the work is in chapters with each chapter being a Poem of Mourning – Elegy, Dirge, Lament, etc., and is underpinned by a song from the jazz golden era.

An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More

Hi there, How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More
