The Last Verses of Beccán

A new text / performance work in development with bilingual poetry, field recording and sound composition exploring hermitage, sea-exile, ecology and language hybridity.  The project is an extended engagement with the 7th-century Gaelic poet Beccán mac Luigdech, a monk of Iona and a hermit on Rum, with field recordings made in the inner Hebrides.  

A debut performance took place in October 2017  at ANATHEMA, Arnolfini Centre for Contemporary Arts. 

Listening through headphones or quality speakers is recommended.
