Caoineadh Dúlra

A dark image of intertwined foliage. A mixture of plants typically found in an Irish hedgerow, including ivy, brambles and moss.

Caoineadh Dúlra is a groundbreaking series of events, in conjunction with artist AlanJames Burns’s ambitious theatrical project The Waking Walls (8th & 9th September 2023).

The Waking Walls

The ruin of a round stone castle sits on a tiny island on a lake, the island is just big enough for the tower. One side of the tower has crumbled away. Trees surround the island and disappear into the water, birds fly across the sky. The reflection of the tower is clearly seen in the still water, creating a mirror image. The weather is grey and foggy obscuring the boundary between the water and the sky.

A wholly distinct experience that uniquely draws upon the Irish traditions of lamenting and caoineadh/ keening to express emotions of ecological and climate grief felt due to lost heritage and ecology associated with climate change.
