‘COME ON UP TO THE HOUSE’
The tent was huge. It could fit hundreds of people. Some in the village didn’t want it there. Objections were raised. After all, in the most remote and westerly part of Ireland, these local people lived a quiet life. Who were this circus crowd, bringing with them dozens of musicians, poets and actors? Why did they want to pitch their tent in Ballinabuck, population 105? Who’s idea was that? This is the story of when Footsbarn Theatre Company came to the Dingle Peninsula, eventually finding a field to pitch their tent and put on several nights of shows with some of Ireland’s most well known musicians and performers. Featuring live music from Ye Vagabonds, Lisa O’Neill, Cormac Begley, Glen Hansard, Liam Ó Maonlai, Swell Season, Mongoose, Interference, Bitch Falcon, Stephen James Smith and many more.
After the screening Director Myles O’Reilly will give a short workshop on live performance ‘Guerilla’ film making, followed by a Q&A. Topics will include:
- Positive reasons for choosing to be genre specific.
- Deciding on locations and visual narratives.
- Choice and use of equipment.
- The creative editing ethos.
- Social media promotion for music content.
- Building and maintaining regular client base.
