The Casement Project is a multi-part art piece spanning one year and multiple forms, inquiring into the idea of nationhood and identity through the clouded story of Irish rebel and British knight, Roger Casement. Following a premier in London and a day-long festival on a beach, TCP artistic director Fearghus O'Conchuir and filmmaker Dearbhla Walsh speak to DRAFF's own filmmaker José about adapting a full-length contemporary dance piece from stage to screen.
I'm Roger Casement will air on RTÉ One Television at 11:10pm on the 17th of January and will be available to watch on the RTÉ Player following broadcast.
