Bád Shiobhán [Siobhán's Boat]
A delicate unpicking of a daughter-father relationship in movement, text and song with an invitation to view tradition in a different light.
Bád Shiobhán is a new dance work by choreographer Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín.
In this honest and authentic piece, Siobhán layers movement, text, song and visuals. Bád Shiobhán centres around the relationship between Siobhán and her father, traditional boat-builder Pádraig Ó Duinnín, and a 3-hand West Kerry Naomhóg, the traditional light-weight, wooden-framed canvas-covered canoe usually rowed at sea on west coast of Ireland.
The work weaves the traditional into a contemporary performance setting, uncovering the nuances of an imperfect relationship. Working with some of the boat's materials (long slender laths made of spruce, 10 yards of canvas) to create textures that are both playful and striking, the piece exposes the fullness of the performers’ experiences, aiming to reach deep into peoples’ hearts and leaving them with a sense of hope. A hope that is human and attainable.
