Keira Martin and her sister Sioda have received Arts Council funding to develop a new work Good Blood in collaboration with musician/composer Jamie Roberts, and is currently in creation with additional direction by Charlotte Vincent.
Good Blood is a work in progress production that looks closely at the relationship of two sisters: Keira and Sioda Martin. Entertaining and familiar scenarios are refreshed and brought into focus to shed new light on family ties; the bonds that hold us together and the people that make us. Both sisters are inspired and influenced by their working class upbringing, politics, Ireland, dance and music. They are both mothers and have an unforgettable dynamic that is humorous and heartwarming, bringing personal, shared experiences to the stage. Good Blood explores the journey from childhood to womanhood. If there is one thing they both agree on, it’s that you don’t get nowt without hard graft!
Good Blood is supported by Dance City, The Place, Kala Sangam, NSCD, Yorkshire Dance 2 faced Dance Company and Vincent Dance Theatre.
Keira Martin is Managed by Sarah Shead and Spin Arts.
