Presented by Ériu Dance Company featuring Breandán de Gallaí and Gina Boreham


Walls Talk brings together solo dancer, Breandán de Gallaí, and singer, Gina Boreham, in this deeply moving work.

Walls Talk performer De Gallaí describes the show as an ‘abstract assemblage of fragments’ – from the music, song and dance representing many different genres, to the text and the mise-en-scène – diverse and contrasting, yet ‘this chaotic cacophony make unexpectedly yet harmonious bedfellows.’


Breandán de Gallaí has been at the forefront of pushing the boundaries of traditional and contemporary Irish dance in Ireland for over three decades. His role as a principal dancer with Riverdance, which spanned more than seven years, saw him tour the globe with numerous prestigious performances including dancing for King Hussein of Jordan, the Emperor of Japan and Princess Diana.

Inspired by the phrase ‘if these walls could talk’, the show features de Gallaí’s mesmerising solo dance routines set against songs from the golden era of jazz and blues, performed live on stage by jazz singer Gina Boreham. Speaking ahead of the tour, de Gallaí is encouraging audiences to come and be inspired:

“We’re hugely excited to be presenting this work in Limerick, particularly at a time when Ireland is emerging from Covid-19 restrictions and the power of live performance has been largely absent from our lives for over two years. The show explores the notion of memory recorded in the material world around us. The narrative is told through the movement of the body and audiences will be wowed by Gina’s Live renditions of the Jazz and Blues classics. We hope to inspire audiences and challenge preconceptions of what dance can be”.
