The Troubles seen through the eyes of the rap, hip-hop, dance generation, Uprising juxtaposes stories from the past with contemporary music and rap in an epic, cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary production fusing text, movement, compelling pop-music, modern dance and the rapping of ancestral voices.
A young DJ attempts to lose himself through music and dance in a Belfast warehouse as the flag protests rage outside. His friend argues with his ‘passivity’, he challenges her ‘call to arms’.
Uprising is a truly unique performance exploring memories and experiences of war in Northern Ireland and internationally. Performances followed by post-show discussions with the artists and invited guest speaker Jim Arbuckle, Good Relations Facilitator.
Uprising is performed as part of The Memory Project, an innovative, ground breaking arts project using drama, theatre and a television documentary to deal with the past history of conflict and to promote a peaceful and shared future for all.
The project is funded by the European Union’s PEACE III Programme.
