"Against the backdrop of seldom-seen 1940's bohemian Dublin, and suspicions of Nazi espionage, we recount an Irish-German artist's forgotten struggle to bring Modern Dance/ German Ausdruckstanz to a conservative, inchoate Ireland that was not yet ready for it. Interpreted beautifully by the great Olwen Fouere, choreographed by Jessica Kennedy of Junk Ensemble, with an original score by Conor Linehan, we frame Erina Brady's legacy in the context of the thriving contemporary dance scene in Ireland today. Interviewees include the late Patrick Scott, Rionach Ni Neill, Fearghus O Conchuir, Declan Kiberd, and more. Actors include Peter Sheridan, Tom Hickey, Pat Laffan, Michael James Ford, Una Kavanagh, Zena Donnelly, and Karen Gleeson. Written and Directed by Deirdre Mulrooney Produced by Midas Productions for TG4 Splanc!
