Common Ground - The Bawnmore Project
On Sunday, November 16, 2003, the Bawnmore Residential Centre was the
unusual setting for the premiere of Common Ground.
It is a newly commissioned piece of music and dance composed by Seán
Taylor, and Mikael Fernstrom. This major music and dance event was commissioned
by the board of directors of the Brothers
of Charity at Bawnmore to mark
the International Year of the Disabled. The work was premiered at this
year’s ‘Sionna’ Festival of European Folk Music 2003.
The collaboration afforded us to work and collaborate with residents
of the Bawnmore Centre who experience a variety of physical disabilities.
