Having lived in so-called ‘Australia’ for a decade, Irish born singer-songwriter, Áine Tyrrell, rewrites what is imaginable every step of the way. She has carved a unique musical path, melding her own Irish roots from the ancient limestone rocks of Country Clare with her respect of the red dirt roads of 60,000 years of Indigenous culture in Australia.
With, More Blacks, More Dogs, More Irish, Tyrrell decolonises the stories we’ve inherited and enables us to start thinking about what stories have been hidden in order for us to forget the truth of who we are and where we are.
Through a mix of visuals, song and storytelling, Áine brings these hidden Irish narratives to the forefront, weaving together a mix of modern and traditional stories to show the evolving Irish cultural landscape and what it means to be Irish, a woman, and on stolen land.
The show includes a panel discussion with Bunyarra Culture Collective, celebrating the parallels of culture, tradition and place, and the inter-woven history between Irish and First Nations People.
