Urgent and vital, the award-winning Blue Boy deals with the experiences of men and women who were incarcerated as children in Catholic residential care institutions. The production combines startling choreography with live music, multi-media, and film, alongside recorded testimony from men and women who resided in those institutions.
Following sell out runs at the Dublin Theatre Festival and Dublin Dance Festival the Blue Boy has toured to Australia, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy. This is the first time Brokentalkers have toured to Galway with this compelling work, which gives intense physical expression to the anguish experienced by those who were silenced. Essential watching for our times.
Brokentalkers are Project Artists, an initiative of Project Arts Centre. The national tour of The Blue Boy is produced by Project Arts Centre with the generous support of the Arts Council.
Please Note: Contains material that some viewers might find disturbing.
