ROMANTIC IRELAND + The Piper’s Grip – Un’edizione bilingue

The Piper’s Grip, is a tender and reverent account of the homoerotics of an Irish music session. In the tradition of Irish musical bawdry, this story portrays a man’s ecstatic reconnection with his culture, and in turn with himself. Bilingual edition produced on the occasion of Walshe’s participation in Ireland at Venice 2024. Translated to Italian by Gaia Baldassarri and Andrea Bergantino.

ROMANTIC IRELAND is the accompanying publication for Eimear Walshe’s participation in Ireland at Venice 2024. Set on the site of an unfinished earth build, the work stages soapy, dramatic encounters between character archetypes from the 19th–21st centuries. The publication vividly captures the energy of the filmmaking by including behind-the-scenes documentation and captioning from the libretto.
