Read: Joseph O’Connor and Brian Byrne interviewed in the Irish Times
Patrick Freyne of the Irish Times newspaper interviewed Joseph O’Connor and Brian Byrne in a piece entitled “Riverdance team Fuse flamenco and fiddlers in new show”
The show itself, says O’Connor, is in two parts. “The first part is built around a sea voyage with people leaving an unnamed series of countries and going to an unnamed big country. In the second part of the show they have intermarried, they flirt and trade and their music bounces off each other, and they learn different dances and different modes of storytelling. It’s built around a wedding. The first act is a journey, because on a ship you can meet anybody. The second act is a wedding; the Talmud says the world is a wedding.”
