Event description

Description

Kirkos are delighted to present Body Noise Work, bringing together 9 artists across disciplines to create an extraordinary evening over four floors of the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios on Saturday December 8th. Each artist will demolish the divide between performer and creator, pulling the audience into brave new spaces and building their own separate but colliding worlds.

The artists of BNW came together during a series of intensive residential workshops in and around Carrick-on-Shannon led by mentors Jennifer Walshe, John Godfrey, Vicky Langan and EL Putnam. All involved were chosen from a hugely oversubscribed call for participation and come from core backgrounds of music, dance, film and visual arts, but all are committed to the idea that boundaries are meaningless in the art of our time.

Our artists come from core disciplines of music (Sebastian Adams, Robbie Blake, Robert Coleman, Seán Ó Dálaigh and Susan Geaney), visual art (Sarah Lundy), interdisciplinary art (Natasha Bourke) and dance (Ruairí Donovan, Laura Sarah Dowdall), but all are deeply engaged in multiple media.

Audience members should expect everything from wires to ropes, plants to baths, and even one-to-one encounters with artists; it's sure to be a multi-sensory, interactive encounter that will captivate, astound and inspire anyone with a thirst for new experiences.

Artwork designed by the brilliant Éna Brennan & image kindly provided by artist Natasha Bourke.

Robbie Blake

Robbie Blake is a vocalist, conductor and composer based in Dublin Ireland. Working regularly with choreographers, visual artists and composers, Robbie’s work is highly collaborative. Drawing on a range of influences, Robbie’s work focuses on the live act and shared communal moments. As a non-binary artist, their work often explores relational themes, the in-between and identity. Their work has been shown at festivals in Canada, the UK and Ireland. As artistic director of Tonnta vocal ensemble, Robbie has led new music events across Ireland in non-traditional settings including the National Museum of Ireland, The Model Gallery, Sligo, Sirius Arts Centre Cobh, Co. Cork.

Sarah Lundy

Lundy is a visual and sound artist from Sligo currently based in County Leitrim. She holds a BA Arts [English & Philosophy], MA Arts Policy & Practice, and an MA in Fine Art. With a post-minimalist aesthetic, repetition features regularly in her practice, often manifesting itself in large-scale sculptural pieces that prompt dialogue on the systems that govern our existence. This meditation on systems is often juxtaposed starkly with single and singular items displaced and then displayed. She was selected for the international exhibition 'HUSTLE' at the Science Gallery Lab Detroit, and recently earned awards from the Arts Council of Ireland & CREATE Artists in the Community (R&D) Award. Lundy also works in horticulture and her artistic practices preoccupation with systems, spaces and contemporary drawing, of late takes increasing influence from the natural world.

Sebastian Adams

Sebastian Adams is an Irish composer, performer and artistic director with wide-reaching interests including experimental text pieces, early music and artificial intelligence. His music is performed regularly by the best Irish ensembles and orchestras as well as abroad. A founding member of Kirkos, a significant aspect of Sebastian’s creative output is as an organiser, curator and advocate for new music. As a viola player, Sebastian has premiered many solo and chamber works and enjoys working closely with composers on their new music. He is also active as an improviser, including in live theatre, and as an early music performer on viola and gamba.

Ruairí Donovan

Donovan has been making dances in Ireland since 2008. A Cork native, his choreographic practice is concerned with ‘aesthetic practices of care’ and queering representations of the dancing body. He is currently living and working on Oileán Chléire, a remote island and Gaeltacht off the south west coast of Co. Cork investigating Gaeilge as a site of queer resistance and new materialist collaboration ‘in the wild’. His own work has toured internationally across Europe, North America and Asia, and he recently performed a solo dance for 30,000 people with Arcade Fire. Ruairí is re-imagining himself and the world around him.

Susan Geaney

Susan Geaney is a Kerry Composer/Improviser currently residing in Dublin. She graduated with 1st class honours B.Mus degree and completed her Masters in Composition in UCC under the supervision of John Godfrey and Jesse Ronneau in 2010. In 2008, Susan studied under American composer Pauline Oliveros where she practiced deep listening and sonic mediation. Her sound practice is routed in the exploration and expansion of 5 key components: listening; space; silence; awareness and intuition across various creative disciplines.

Seán Ó’Dálaigh

Seán Ó Dálaigh is a composer/performer from and based in Kerry, Ireland. His music is concerned with things like space, silence and the physicality of sound production. Recently he has been engaged with a personal investigation of his practices relationship to place, heritage and the Irish language. His practice includes writing for ensembles and musicians, composing for/collaborating with and performing in contemporary theatre and dance works and performative installations incorporating improvisation, electronic music and audience participation.

Laura Sarah Dowdall

Laura Sarah Dowdall is an innovative dance artist creating engaging performance that is experiential, immersive and permeable to audience interaction. She incorporates instant composition, immersive theatre and durational performance into contemporary dance work that is site-specific, staged and on film. The artist's research and choreography center on developing new avenues for audience engagement, breaking boundaries of hierarchy and expectation, and offering experiences of heightened awareness. Laura works with choreographers, dance theatre companies, filmmakers and collaborators in Germany, Ireland, France and the USA.

Robert Coleman

In recent years much of his output has focused on multi-disciplinary collaborations with artists in dance, film and lighting design, such as the Experimental Film Society, Laura Sarah Dowdall, Mihai Cucu and Slipdraft.

Natasha Bourke

Natasha Bourke is a Cork-based Interdisciplinary artist of Irish/Dutch descent with an extensive movement, aerial and performance background. Her practice includes the use of Harness/Vertical and Contemporary dance, Butoh, Body Weather, Clown, Installation, Archive, Drawing, Digital & Analogue AV media and Film as languages to contemplate themes of self and society such as identity, institution, transience, perception, pathos and play. Natasha’s roots, life, and mixed experience of intense ballet training from infancy all subtly underpin her work to convey a more universal message. Since 2007, Bourke has been involved in a broad range of solo & group projects, exhibitions, workshops, residencies and collectives and has independently presented work at events and venues across Ireland, Italy and Sweden. Her aesthetic has been described as poetic, absurd and spectral in feel.
