The first Irish language company ever to premiere in the US!!
Written and directed by Paul Mercier
95 Stanton Street, New York City
16 – 20 September
Fíbín are delighted to be making their first appearance at the 1st Irish Festival with the world premiere of Réiltín.
Réiltín is the most exciting Irish cultural experience to come to the US in recent years with a soundtrack that reflects a new Ireland. Accompanied by immersive visuals this is a show not to be missed!
Told in Fíbín’s trademark visual style, Réiltín is a coming of age story of a young Irish woman in the middle of an economic crisis. Réiltín is 20 years old. She is a fallout girl, an economic casualty. This is not how her life was supposed to be – she was destined to be a singer. She needs to escape her dead-end world before it is too late. She is back to perform the gig of her life that will decide her future.
The performance marks the first Irish language company ever to premiere in the US. It features the amazing and powerful Dublin singer Clíona Ní Chiosáin.
This dynamic collaboration between well-known Irish writer and director Paul Mercier (writer in residence – Abbey Theatre, founder of Passion Machine Theatre Company, writer of Studs, and TV hit, Aifric ), composer Simon Noble, and singer Clíona Ní Chiosáin is a culmination of 4 months of development between the artists.
