In Clouds - Cork Midsummer Festival
Peter Power is one of the most innovative artists working in Ireland and this Cork Midsummer Festival / Triskel Arts Centre co-commission celebrating 40 years of Triskel sees him joining creative forces with composer Michael Gallen, dancer/choreographer Stephanie Dufresne, contemporary choral ensemble Tonnta led by Robbie Blake, writer Sara Baume and designers Sarah Jane Shiels, David Mathúna and Izabelle Balikoeva.
In Clouds ventures off course into a new musical world, creating an immersive experience and asking us to find comfort in a world of unknowns where we can abandon the notions of the clock for the cloud.
