Homebeat Presents: Sorca Mc Grath

Wednesday, 17 March 2021, 7.25pm

Sorca Mc Grath, also known as Wounded Healer, is a process based audiovisual artist, examining rupture and repair as agents of change.

Her audiovisual piece Grief as a Ghost was written to be performed live in March 2020, for the St. Patrick’s festival, which was postponed due to the rupture of life as we knew it, when the global pandemic landed on the shores of Ireland.

Almost a year later, as live performances remain out of reach for the time being, Grief as a Ghost was filmed in February 2021 by a small masked crew, in the incredible surrounds of St. Finian’s Bay, Co. Kerry.

Thanks to the hosts at The Driftwood Surf Cafe and the attentive arrangements for artist and crew, by Emmet Condon of Homebeat, a once off performance was captured with the hint of silhouettes of the Skellig Islands and the wild Atlantic sea as the backdrop.

The piece as described by Sorca is “a prayer for loss and love that weaves augmented vocals, sounds and visuals in response to each other, creating a unique tapestry of sound and vision through each passing”.

All St Patrick’s Festival events can be viewed on SPF TV on the festival’s website: www.stpatricksfestival.ie/spftv
