BYZANTINE is a short circus film by Ronan Brady, created as an ode to the many layers that exist in us all.
The good and the bad, the ones we want to conceal and the ones we want to project. The ones we are ashamed of, and the ones we take pride in. These layers are what makes us who we are, and that is all we can be, ourselves.
Ronan Brady is a Roscommon born physical artist, teacher, coach and author, recognised internationally for his expertise in cyr wheel. He has co-created and performed in award winning circus shows, How to Square a Circle, which he performed at the arts centre in August 2019 and Sub Rosa while also performing and touring internationally with other leading Irish theatre companies. His memoir “Worlds Apart” was published by Mercier Press. The book is an open and funny account about leaving one live in order to create another.
