Event description

Description

Strike-World War-Revolt-War-Civil War is the story of Davy Doran and Rose O’Connor. Davy is from the North Wall, his father was a docker, who lost his job after the lock-out. To help his family Davy enlists for WW1, despite that fact he is too young, and that his family and in particular his father will consider him a traitor to Ireland. Rose O’Connor was born in London to an Irish woman who left Ireland when she became pregnant out of wedlock. Rose’s mother worked as a servant in a big house, and when she died of cancer, Rose took her job even though she was barely of working age, but it was better than an orphanage. Rose is alone in the world, and when she hears everyone talking about the war and enlisting, she decides to become a nurse and go. Davy meets Rose at the field hospital and a friendship develops.

The story is told in the form of a music hall with songs. But it is also a dance-theatre piece, with much of the action movement, gesture, sound, image.
