Cinémorphe presents "Distant Music"
12 & 13 December 2013, 19.30
Inspired by James Joyce's short story, The Dead, Cinémorphe's Distant Music invites you to step back in time, to Dublin at the turn of the 20th century. Experience the hopes and fears of the characters as they prepare for their grand Christmas party. Witness the dying of an epoch in a changing Dublin. Share the characters' moving, intimate stories and explore the music, dance and politics of the day. This immersive theatre experience encourages you to inhabit the lives of the characters and, as the evening draws to a close, to celebrate with them the passing of time in the world you have created around you.
Cinémorphe is an international performance company based in Paris which consists of artists from all disciplines: actors, dancers, musicians, video and radio artists. Their last show was described by Figaroscope as 'une soirée décapatante'.
Guests are invited, if possible, to dress or have accessories with some reference to this period.
