Project Arts Centre, 9 - 12 July
Liv O’Donoghue presents a stunning double bill including the HEAR ME SING YOUR SONG, which featured as a 'First Look' work in development at DanceHouse as part of DDF2014. Receiving a wonderful reaction as apart of our 10th Festival - now is your chance to catch the finished piece!
HEAR ME SING YOUR SONG recklessly hauls you to a remote place and leaves you at the side of the road. There, existing somewhere between make-believe, memory and reality, you find yourselves as strangers, unsure of how you got here or where you’re going to. On this rough terrain, surrealism and dark humour is all you have to ward off the bleak cold. What happens when you have no place, and people are what you call home?
Created in collaboration with renowned musicians Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Bryan O’Connell, Hear me sing your song threads together a fragmentary family history and the vaguest of memories, uncovering a past to shed light on the present.
WITH RAISED ARMS boldly exposes the choices we make within the strange rationale and cynicism of politics in the status quo. With a rough-edged score by Tom Lane, this duet is unsettling, stark and visually arresting.
