Ancient Rain is an international collaboration between two game changing artists - Camille O'Sullivan (Ireland) and Paul Kelly (Australia). 

Ancient Rain beguiles our perceptions of the cyclical nature of time, life and death using impressionistic theatrical song cycles using narrative from poems written by heaney, Yeats and Meehan.

These two game-changing artists inhabit a daisy chain of men and women, a series of individual lives and characters that coalesce into a tapestry of interconnected souls.

Musically driven by Feargal Murray (Ireland) and directed by Chris Drummond (Australia), Ancient Rain plays in 6 Australian cities in 2016/17 followed by international touring. Produced by Far and Away Productions.
