A live performance of poetry by Doireann Ní Ghríofa with sonic landscape by internationally-acclaimed composer Linda Buckley, in which each movement ignites a series of burnings, with wild, immersive sounds, and blazing poems merging in crackling, fizzing fires. Each poem sets the city on fire, and each fire burns in a different era, revealing a new layer to the development of the character of Cork and its people.

Linda and Doireann will be joined by artist Cassandra Eustace, who will add a deeply visual element to the exploration of fire, revealing a hidden sensory layer of the history and burnings of Cork.
