Fearghus will start work on The Casement Project as part of Choreodrome 2015, The Place’s biennial summer research and development programme.

The company will show work-in-progress as part of Touch Wood on 11 September.
The completed stage work will return to The Place in 2016 as part of the Culture Ireland 2016 International Programme
