The Tain is a hip hop re-telling of the epic Irish tale of Cúchulainn
and Queen Maeve. 20-25 July 2014, 9pm nightly. Tickets €10.00 / €5.00
The city is the state, the tribes collide, a hero emerges. The epic
Irish tale of Cúchulainn and Queen Maeve is set in the present day, in
the simmering underworld of urban turf wars. Fired by passion and
pride, Cúchulainn seeks to defend his territory at all costs. In this
explosive re-imagining of the ancient story, there are scores to be
settled, sacrifices to be made and the ultimate prize to be claimed.
Featuring a cast of international, national and local performing artists and a searing soundtrack by hip hop duo Icarus Rising.
Presented in association with Limerick City of Culture and Dance Limerick.
