About the event

Full info & tickets from:

Christine Tobin's newest project, Returning Weather, imaginatively weaves song, spoken word and a stellar group of musicians from diverse disciplines together, with the live shows expanding upon the material with additional spoken word passages and visual effects. Returning Weather charts a journey which is part homecoming, part memoir, inspired by Christine’s return to Ireland after many years abroad and explores themes of finding home, dwelling and landscape, reconnecting with a cultural background, reshaping a sense of identity and belonging. "Tobin’s vocals, veering from acrobatic to sultry, are tailored perfectly for the material, her evocations of time and place precise. Classy and lovely.” (★★★★ Observer) Tobin was commissioned to write this evocative new song cycle by The Dock Arts Centre, with an Arts Council of Ireland, Music Commissions Award. All the words and compositions are by Christine, with the exception of 'Still, Life'which a poem by Eva Salzman set to music by Tobin.
