Abù - A shout of support and a wish for flourishing.
Drawing on Gaelic games and the communities involved in them, this year's Step Up Dance project presents a choreography to celebrate the commitment, care and passion it takes to make a strong team. The dance honours not only the stars on the pitch but also the people who aren't always visible and aren't always included. Developed with input from individual players and teams in Limerick and powered by new music from award-winning rapper, producer and songwrtier MuRli, Abù brings dynamic performances from these early-career dancers onto the pitch and in to the heart.
Performers: Hannah Scully, Mia Bradley Evans, Michael McEvoy, Roberta Ceginskaite, Yumi Lee
