Togail Nàisean / Re-Building a Nation


Spoken word performer and Gaelic learner Martin O'Connor is revisiting his 2017 performance Togail Nàisean / Building a Nation to reflect on the process of language learning and performing in multiple languages. The original piece is an exploration of Scots and Gaelic languages through the personal relationship with voice, accent and dialect. Martin attempts to unearth the words that are lost when rural is swapped for urban, when deindustrialisation descends, and when we are disconnected from our cultural identity. This performance will include new insights into Martin’s Scots and Gaelic learning journey in the current context for marginalised languages. Suitable for audiences aged 14+.
