Luke Murphy / Attic Projects: The Dust We Raised

the_dust_we_raised_web_image_960_960_s_c1

We can try to alter mosquitoes to eliminate malaria, attempt to cure cancer or guarantee your child will be blonde. Choreographer Luke Murphy examines our giant leaps forward in science and medicine – and the back we stepped on to get there. Quiet yet furious, sharp yet blunt, full of contradictions but starkly exposed, The Dust We Raised inhabits a haunting world of sound, film, dance and theatre where three lost souls wade through the fog – with a tempest of movement and a storm of questions.

Come along to TDC this Friday, July 28th at 6pm for a short extract presentation of the work, followed by a facilitated Q&A.

Breda Larkin presents “Breda’s Way”

During the summer of 1985, statues of the Virgin Mary were reported to move spontaneously at different locations around Ireland.

The sightings of ‘Moving Mary’ had profound effects on many people. Now, some thirty years later, Ballinasloe-born comedian Breda Larkin has decided to do her own investigation.

Join Breda and ‘Moving Mary’ on a personal pilgrimage that explores unsung heroines, laughter and life on the road.

This Friday, April 7th: Ruti Lachs presents WIP sharing of her show ‘Sideways on Planet Piano’

rutiRuti Lachs is best known in Cork as piano accordionist with klezmer band The Fireflies, and more recently, trombonist with Quangodelic. She is also a music teacher and community musician.

During her week at TDC, Ruti is developing her original solo show Sideways on Planet Piano. With directorship from actor Dominic Moore, and with help from lighting engineer Kieran Curtin, and Paul Facey-Hunter, she will  develop various aspects of the script, and the musical and theatrical performance.

Sideways on Planet Piano is the musical story of an ordinary single woman who parties, brings up her son, has various relationships, and struggles with huge problems -  like what to do next. This one hour show, written and performed by Ruti Lachs, is by turns moving, challenging, and hilarious. The melodic elements draw on klezmer, folk, and blues styles.

A musical cautionary tale for parents and wannabe parents, and adult offspring. Not suitable for children!

Come check out the Ruti’s WIP sharing Friday at 6pm in the TDC!
