1943 - A Dance Odyssey Premieres on RTE One on Easter Monday, April 1st :-)

It was wonderful to finally see Erina Brady's story being told for the first time, by her former tiny pupils in "1943 - A Dance Odyssey", my first film documentary, on RTE One on Easter Monday, April 1st, at 7.30pm.  I hear that it had 150,000 viewers, which somewhat exceeded my original expectation of about 150...

John Boland wrote of it  in his television column: "The past was... another country in 1943 - A Dance Odyssey' in which three sisters and two other women revisited the Harcourt Street premises where German-Irish Erina Brady had taught them modern dance 70 years earlier.  Their reminiscences of this exotic, bohemian woman were touching and there was a haunting and affecting quality to Deirdre Mulrooney's short film"... (Irish Independent Weekend Review, April 6th, 2013).

If you missed it, you can catch up on the Odyssey in your own time (in the next 20 days), on RTE Player, by clicking here: http://www.rte.ie/player/ie/show/10127382/
