The team behind Ireland’s most celebrated boutique festival, Body & Soul, have share a brand-new multi-disciplinary project created entirely during the Stage 5 Lockdown. ‘Ériu’s Threshold’ is presented as a short film, available for free on the Body & Soul website until 26th February 2021.
Featuring an outstanding cast of renowned Irish female talent from the worlds of theatre, dance, film, literature, fashion design, and music, the project interprets the past in response to the current global pandemic.
The piece was originally conceived during a site visit at Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath, when Body & Soul founder Avril Stanley invited Creative Director Mary Hickson to collaborate. Taking some inspiration from the magical playground that is the land that surrounds the 17th Century country house, they were both keen to lean into the spirit of Celtic female energy and use the piece to amplify the space between things – the threshold.
“Everyone involved had a yearning to create,” says Avril Stanley.
“So many great, talented people came from all corners of Ireland to make sense of this time together. This film features so much Irish creativity; from bespoke fashion to new musical compositions and spoken word poetry. It’s incredible to think that all of this happened during our strictest lockdown.”
