World War 1 performance project
21st October 2014
FALLEN – the final performance in DU Dance (NI)’s three year long inter-generational programme – Alternative Energies – designed to bring people of all ages together to work and create – took place at the atmospheric Titanic Drawing Offices on 9th, 10th & 11th November 2014 to mark the 100 year anniversary of the outbreak of World War I.
The six- week long project and performance included people from across Belfast and Ballymoney aged 9 to 90 years.
FALLEN does not tell a narrative story of World War I, make any political comment or attempt to historically recreate images from that time, instead it is an exploration of the human cost for those who went to war and those who remained at home.
