Frieling the Music

Frieling the Music 18Oct

Taking inspiration from Brian Friel’s Dancing at Lughnasa, LJMU Masters student, Corey Harbinson, takes a modern approach presenting new text, music and songs he has written based on Friel’s story using hymn, folk and a capella styles.

Showcasing Friel’s characters – five sisters- audiences witness the expectations placed on Irish women alongside the factors that influence and shape their circumstances, revealing the fight between family loyalty, tradition and the oppression of ‘modern’ life. Friel’s work suggests that for Ireland to progress it must modernise and become more like the UK. Harbinson likens this to Ireland within Brexit, though in 2018 perhaps Ireland’s passport and free movement gives them the upper hand?
