The Cast comprises Traces Dance Ensemble led by Libby Seward, dancers from Waterford Academy of Music & Arts with Trish Murphy and WYDmoves Youth Dance with Becci Whelan. The three choreographers weave together a seamless fusion of movement, text, visual imagery and theatrical magic. Mark reads from his collections Even So: New & Selected Poems (2008), A Gather of Shadow (2012), The River Book (2010) and The Backstrand (2013) contributing to a sound score that includes recorded voice, song and original and sourced music.
