East Belfast Boy

Strand Arts Centre, 152-154 Holywood Road, Belfast, BT4 1NY




Pumping techno, pulverising movement and street sharp poetry, East Belfast Boy is a cliché free zone. Meet Davy.  The things he sees. His streets. His mates. His girl and … The Boys. 

 ‘It is what it is. 

  It's hard to say what it is 

  It’s just, you know 

  What it is’ 

Originally created by Partisan Productions through a collaborative process with young men from Belfast’s Beersbridge and Newtownards Roads.  In 2018 Prime Cut Productions developed it to become an award-winning, critically acclaimed production.

Now East Belfast Boy goes digital. Filmed throughout East Belfast in the summer of 2020 and directed by Emma Jordan, East Belfast Boy features a stunning physical performance by dancer Ryan O Neill, with voiceover by actor Terrence Keeley and a thrilling updated soundtrack by Phil Kieran.
