Before the festival, Fearghus will prepare and host a supper as an occasion for conversation across disciplines and cultures in relation to the theme of ‘recovery’ – central to his new work Cure. Come and share food, knowledge, experience and thoughts, as we build connections from different standpoints. This collective enquiry will give guests a chance to explore their own understanding of recovery, to gain insight into the ideas and artistic processes of Cure’s creation and to inform Fearghus in the crucial final rehearsal period before the show’s premiere.
