Ireland’s most innovative, daring and talented artist Michael Keegan-Dolan and his award-winning company Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre present James son of James.
James returns home for his father’s funeral having been away for eleven years. He is late and misses the burial by a day and a half. He becomes embroiled in the lives of ten characters: the local politician, his wife and their son, the policeman and his wife, a farmer, a doctor, a merchant, his daughter and a young woman from the east.
James son of James is a story of accidental heroism, hero worship, sadness, love, power, betrayal and revenge, told through image, dance, song and outrageous humour by eleven extraordinary, international performers.
