Ryan v The White Star Line Gallery

These are some pictures taken of the recording of “Ryan V’s The White Star Line”. Recorded @baystudios in Wicklow and some of the original papers that inspired the piece. Filmed by Kilian Waters  it was shot over several days.

It features a string quartet, Clare Kavanagh (Soprano) and Martin McCann (Tenor). The film has be shown the film in many film festivals. The letters contain correspondence between “The Dock Wharf Riverside and General Workers Union. Ben Tillet  sent a letter to the Board of Trade who were responsible for the conditions at the time. Those that travelled in steerage  at the time were the people who gave me the inspiration for the piece.
