'Root' Regional Tour 2022

There was a time when a red squirrel could have travelled from the north to the south of Ireland through tree-travel alone. That native forest of 80% has been uprooted over time to leave Ireland with the lowest tree cover in Europe. 

Where has the forest gone? What would its ghost say to us? 

At the intersection of devised performance and ecology, Root takes a look into Ireland's forestry system by handing the microphone over to a tree to hear what it has to say.  

Root will be performed in Backstage Theatre Longford on Saturday 29th October and more  details and booking facility will be available on Backstage Theatre's website soon.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
