Nic Green: Fatherland

The Arches presents

Nic Green: Fatherland

Thu 13 Nov 2014 | 7.30pm (30 mins) | £8/£6 | 18+

Developed and Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre
Supported by The Arches

Born to a Scottish father (whom she met only once), Green follows the mystery of her paternal line, evoking the lands of ancestors through the dance of drum and moustache.

Accompanied by an ensemble of musicians, Fatherland draws on the energies and archetypes of a bloodline: The cathartic, intoxicating dances of the terra firma; the ancient warrior women painted and wild; the sadness of songs uttered in Gaelic tongue and the complex psycho-geography of this land.

Based on the patterns of a traditional Highland Jig, Fatherland unfurls to consolidate disparate and unknown aspects of Green’s identity.

“Elemental, eerie, affirmative, harrowingly beautiful…another triumph for Green, a joy for the rest of us. ★★★★
Mary Brennan for The Herald

Fatherland was created by Nic Green, Tim Harbinson and Alasdair Campbell, with dramaturgical support from Deborah Richardson-Webb.

Nic was nominated for Best Female Performer at Dublin Fringe Festival for her role in this work.
