'Blood Knot' in Project Arts Centre

The latest performance project on fundit.ie is Blood Knot. Blood Knot tells the story of two half-brothers living in South Africa during the apartheid era; one brother is clearly dark-skinned while the other has much lighter skin and can pass as white. The play was written decades ago but the theatre company, Shiva Productions, is new.

An unusual feature of the funding of this project is that unlike most Fundit projects this one is definitely going ahead - the play runs from 1st to 11th June 2011. The Fundit.ie rewards are tickets for the show, so effectively they're offering a discount for buying ahead. In one sense this is the most fundamental reward any theatre can offer, but it seems somewhat different to the idea of funding a project in advance. Perhaps this is why the project hasn't received much funding yet: it doesn't really need it to proceed.

    They couldn't have seen the current run in Project Arts Centre - but the play has been around for 40 years so it might have been a different production being referred to.
