Ag filleadh ar an bhFeothanach, díríonn an scannnán seo ar an draíocht cruthaitheach a tharla sa Halla seo idir ceoltoirí ar nós Cormac Begley, Michael Keegan Dolan agus Teach Damsa chun an Seó Mám a chruthú. We are completely immersed in this remarkable exercise, with thrilling moments of artistic communion taking centre stage before the utterly joyous climax returns us to the finished piece’s triumphant premiere. A stunningly cinematic documentary, The Dance, about the stage show Mám. Directed by Pat Collins, it features choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan and the musical stylings of Cormac Begley and the Stargaze Ensemble, it is a powerful expression of contemporary Irish culture. MÁM, meaning handful, yoke or mountain pass in the Irish language, is a fitting name for the stage show, inspired by the picturesque Dingle Peninsula.
