Rowan Rheingans: Dispatches On The Red Dress

Written by Rowan Rhiengans and Liam Hurley

A theatrical companion-piece to singer and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Rheingans’s acclaimed debut solo album, 2019’s The Lines We Draw Together, this Fringe First-winning performance – likewise inspired by her German grandmother’s 1940s childhood – combines original songs and storytelling with fiddle and banjo accompaniment, live looping and pre-recorded sounds. Variously exploring themes of 'memory, history, fascism, waltzes, folk-song, bird-song, trauma, family and war', it ultimately celebrates human empathy and resilience, together with the power of small acts of resistance.

Written by Rowan Rheingans & Liam Hurley
Director: Rowan Rheingans

A part of the Celtic Connections 2020 festival.
