Heroes on the Hill – Dungannon, Intercultural project

DU Dance, working collaboratively with STEP (South Tyrone Empowerment Project), brought a unique intercultural programme of work to Dungannon culminating in a fantastic performance in the Market Square on Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th April .

Inspired from the legends, myths and heroes from around the world Heroes on the Hill celebrated our diverse and separate histories. 60 young people took to the stage in and through music, dance and storytelling captured our imaginations engaging and celebrating as they reclaimed our hill of many heroes.

Heroes on the Hill, Dungannon. The sun warmed my bones and the performance warmed my heart, your project was a shining example of what the Intercultural Arts Programme was established for!

Hope to see this type of show again in Dungannon. Brought together young people from all different traditions, races & backgrounds. This is how to do it no doubt!
