Out of the Ordinary / As an nGnách

Out of the Ordinary/As an nGnách is a virtual reality performance brought to us by Irish National Opera. It is an exciting new bi-lingual (Irish & English) virtual reality community opera which was developed for and with people living across Ireland.

It tells the tale of a community forced to flee their barren homeland, which, due to their own actions, can no longer sustain them. Nalva, our main character, builds a boat to take her people on an epic journey to find a new home.

But as they begin their voyage, they don’t realise they are being pursued. Daol, a powerful force of nature, furious at being released from the leached soil, churns up the seas and causes a huge storm, plunging the boat underwater.

When Nalva and her people eventually resurface, they find themselves at a new and unfamiliar land. Can they make a home here? Will they learn to live in harmony with nature, or will they repeat the mistakes of the past? And will the destructive energy of Daol find peace, or will she continue to wreak havoc? It’s all to play for. Why not climb aboard?

Please note: The event will take place in the Town Hall, Bray. Audience members each receive a virtual reality headset. The duration of the screening is 20 minutes.
