Date: 9th & 10th December
Venue: Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Bellaghy
Each month, HomePlace invites a leading theatre company/director to respond – in whatever way they choose – to one of Seamus Heaney’s celebrated poetry collections.
Specifically designed to take place in the intimate surrounds of The Helicon, each staging will employ a unique combination of elements – including music, visuals, lighting and performance – to offer a fresh perspective on Heaney’s words. For the third event in the series, director Lynne Parker brings her unique vision to bear on Heaney’s 1972 collection, Wintering Out.
Lynne Parker is Artistic Director and co-founder of Rough Magic, the award-winning Dublin-based theatre company celebrated for its world-class productions and support for new Irish writing. She was awarded the Irish Times Special Tribute Award in 2008 and an Honorary Doctorate by Trinity College Dublin in 2010.
