The ruin of a round stone castle town sits on a tiny island in a lake, the island is just big enough for the tower. Behind the tower the forested mainland is visible through a veil of fog. Trees surround the edge of the island and disappear into the water. The bright green grass on the island stands out in contrast to the grey of the fog and dark blue water of the lake.

Gormfhlaith Ní Shíocháin, Ní Bheoláin talks to RTÉ’s Tús Áite about ‘The Waking Walls’. 

Caoineadh don ghéarchéim aeráide agus an scrios éiceolaíochta atá i cur i láthair amharclannaíochta a dhéanfar ag Caisleán suite ar oileán bídeach i loch i gCo. an Chabháin ag an deireadh seachtaine. Bhí Gormfhlaith Ní Shíocháin, Ní Bheoláin atá bainteach leis an saothar seo ar an gclár chun tuilleadh a insint dúinn faoi.

The Waking Walls is a new collaborative, theatrical artwork that reawakens and equips us with age-old methods of coping with loss. The Waking Walls is an invitation to reframe environmental grief – not as a state of disconnection and isolation, but as a unifying experience to collectively process climate disruption.

The Waking Walls has been developed by Cavan-born environmental artist AlanJames Burns in collaboration with writer Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan, NYAH (Cross Border Collective of Traditional Arts Musicians), Cavan Arts Office, Irish Hospice Foundation and Cavan Adventure Centre.
