PAST PROJECTS

THE EURYDICE PROJECT

by Joanna Crawley

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A radical new retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth — from her side of hell on earth. Featuring live music for percussion and strings, composed by Jane Deasy, follow Eurydice on an epic music-theatre journey of love, rage, fury and struggle against cold political calculation.

 

This visually stunning work explodes the classical myth into a highly visceral spectacle to unearth what lies beneath the fakery and chicanery of our patriarchal society.

Override 

by Stacey Gregg 

directed by Sophie Motley

with George Hanover and Shane O'Reilly  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mark and Violet have run away from technology-obsessed reality to raise their future child closer to nature. No enhancements, no bionic super-limbs, no shopping for perfect embryos. They want everything, from their flesh to their love to be real. But there’s no love without fear of loss.

So will you get old with me? Violet? 

 

Stacey Gregg (winner Irish Times Theatre Awards Best New Play 2015) examines the boundaries of our faith in science. Turned by Sophie Motley into a digital spectacle with visceral audio visual design, an unsettlingly funny, bitter love letter to the future.

Taboo

Presented in association with White Label

 

There was a boy and a girl and somehow they met. Lily doesn’t get out much. Tom finds it hard to meet new people. And now they’re having their first date. Lily cooks a three course meal. Tom brings flowers and wine. On the surface, everything seems fine. But in the modern world, dating is a surprisingly complex thing with a lot of unwritten rules.

There are certain things you shouldn’t do on a first date.
And then there are certain things you shouldn’t do at all.

Taboo is a dark comedy that allows us to better get acquainted with the skeletons in our cupboards.

In the movie by Ewa Hevelke and Michał Januszaniec, Kantor’s theatre strategies are presented in the context of the works of the contemporary artists incorporating new media into their practice, like Katie Mitchell, Rimini Protokoll collective, Rabih Mroué and 59 Productions company.

Workshop with Akhila Krishnan

November  8th 12pm-2pm

120 min

 

 

Akhila Krishnan will walk the participants through a process of making video-content for different scales of show (from small to big as follows) :

a) Collaborations with musicians (MAP/Garden Music)

http://akhilakrishnan.com/2012/03/garden-music/

 

b) Working at the Fringe in 2014, on "The Dispute"

http://hibrow.tv/player.html?em=A0bWVlbzrY4GFjBJ4i1zZgD6afu0JBuG

 

c) Working on a show with 59, e.g. Olympics, Great Britain, An American in Paris

 

Akhila Krishnan is a visual artist, film-maker and a senior assistant designer with 59 Productions. Akhila started working in video design for performance as part of the collaborative MAP project (Music, Art, Performance) run between the RCA and The Guildhall School of Music. Working in collaboration with animateur Rachael Perrin, she created a piece for the opening night of the Surreal House exhibition at the Barbican. Further commissions with the Academy of St. Martins in the fields and other organisations followed.

Akhila has worked with 59 productions on a range of projects. Her first project with the company was the Olympic Opening Ceremony (2012). In particular, she produced a special title card shoot as an option for the creative team.

She then went on to work with 59 on Night Train, a live camera theatre piece directed by Katie Mitchell. The work is devised using techniques developed by 59 Productions and Mitchell over many years of collaborative practice – and can be best described as creating a film live on stage.

Following this, she worked with 59 on The Perfect American (Madrid/London), a new opera by Philip Glass on the life of Disney and The Baroque Story, a new permanent exhibit at Hampton Court Palace.

She is particularly interested in exploring the relationship between material and temporal mediums, and in the politics of memory, history and identity.

The Art of Decision Making

 

What it is...

 

An evening exploring how our brains make decisions and tell stories.

 

Wednesday 30th of January - Leixlip Library - 7pm

Thursday 31st of January - Science Gallery Dublin - 630pm

 

 

What it's all about...

 

White Label and The Festival of Curiosity invite you to come and test your cognitive biases and be part of the development of a new piece of groundbreaking theatre.

 

This event is designed to develop a new play by road-testing experimental surveys and providing a forum to discuss the art and the science behind the show.  

 

In addition to the live surveys, there will be a rehearsed reading of an excerpt of the play and a panel discussion on the neuroscience and psychology of decision making and how our brains are fundamentally narrative machines.
