Luke Murphy/Attic Projects present the development of ExCaelo

Luke Murphy, Choreographer in residence at the Firkin Crane and founder of Attic Projects, returns to the TDC to develop a new site specific work, which will be staged as part of the Midsummer Festival in June.

Using the city as its backdrop and with the audience watching through binoculars, ExCaelo, which blends together dance, theatre, and mixed media installation, will challenge the audience viewing experience.
