In conversations with audiences members, a number people at both performances mentioned how enjoyable it had been to be able to hear the sounds of birds alongside or between the music composed by MuRli.

Abú – Step Up Dance Project
University of Limerick GAA Pitch, The Pavilion, Thursday 26 May | 18:00
Ahane GAA Club, Friday 27 May | 20:00
Abú is a shout of support and wish for flourishing. Drawing on Gaelic games and the communities involved in them, this year’s Step Up Dance Project presents a choreography to celebrate the commitment, care and passion it takes to make a strong team. The dance honours not only the stars on the pitch but also the people who aren’t always visible and aren’t always included. Developed with input from individual players and teams in Limerick and powered by new music from award-winning rapper, producer and songwriter MuRli, Abú brings dynamic performances from these early-career dancers onto the pitch and into the heart.
