Date, Time & Location

Enniskillen, Quay Ln, Enniskillen BT74 6AG, UK
Traversing the innocence of childhood memories from deep within his Grandfather’s House, juxtaposed against the chaos of the troubles in Northern Ireland during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, Fermanagh based choreographer and performer Dylan Quinn explores his experiences of growing up in a place of conflict.
Please note: audience members will be required to undertake small participation tasks during the performance. Audience members will be asked to leave coats, bags and mobile phones in a safe space outside the performance area.
An audience of 4 per show will be transported back to 1970’s Belmore Street in a performance space specially constructed by Jon Kelly. Through theatre, movement and music the audience will interact with and be engaged by the memories and experiences that are shared.
Working with composer, vocal artist and long-term collaborator Andy Garbi, to curate a companion sound installation, there will be space for the audience’s own private contemplations whilst sitting within ‘My Grandfather’s House’.
This unique immersive event will take place in 2 parts: a performance presented daily between the 15th and the 30th of July, and the sound installation which will be open to the public between performances.
‘My Grandfather’s House’ is supported by the National Lottery via the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, The Reconciliation Fund Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Experience Enniskillen. The performance was originally developed through a Commemoration Attachment at the Abbey Theatre/Amharclann na Mainistreach.
