Antartica World Premiere @ Kilkenny Arts Festival

Antartica World Premiere @ Kilkenny Arts Festival

Monday, 14 August 2017, 8.30pm

In last year’s Festival, electronic composer Linda Buckley and uilleann piper David Power presented Uilleann Goes Electric, the first fruits of a groundbreaking new collaboration which culminates, this year, in this staged performance. Drawing inspiration from the early Antarctic expeditions, Antarctica is a multimedia performance combining Buckley’s hypnotic electronic score with live uilleann pipes from David Power in an environment of evocative projected imagery. Designed and directed by John Comiskey, and staged in the atmospheric interior of The Brewhouse (formerly Smithwick’s brewery), Antarctica stages an enthralling dialogue between past and future.
