  • Is all now seenheard then forgotten?

    15th Jun 2012 (Fri) from 19:30 - 21:00

    Smock Alley Theatre
    Joyce's final masterpiece provides the jumping off point for this adventurous mix of improvised music and film. Performed by vocalist Dorothy Murphy, Barcelonian film maker Héctor Castells, and clarinettist Seán Mac Erlaine, this piece is an abstract homage to one of the English language's great works of abstraction. Using improvisation, repetition, collage and a personalised, devised language, Is now all seenheard then forgotten? reflects Finnegans Wake without any overt attempt to translate the text. These three innovative artists work with the poetic elements of the book, creating a sound-and-image atmosphere, which is both beautiful and otherworldly. More

All that plus three world premières and a few little surprises, some of them in honour of the season: "Summertime, and the living…." More
