‘Unsettling, raw and even beautiful…Heartbreaking.’ The Irish Times *****

Following their tour with The Falling Song in 2014, Ireland’s award-winning dance company Junk Ensemble is returning to England later this month with Bird With Boy, a beautiful site responsive work uniquely created for atmospheric surroundings of different non-theatre spaces. About things which end before they should, Bird With Boy uses a multi-generational cast, including six local boys, and an unabashed sense of theatricality to create an intimate, haunting audience experience. Watch the video.
