About this event

Headonbody presents, SOUP By Deirdre Griffin & Craig Cox

Soup is a kinetic shrine to a lost parent and an absurd meditation on the process of grief. It exists inside a fey mirror world built out of vegetables, polystyrene heads, the kitchen table and inhabited by a sinuous doppelgänger. Performed with a mutant physicality, it is simultaneously brutish, sensual, ridiculous and vulnerable. It see-saws between hilarious and harrowing as it reaches for a shared state of catharsis with the audience. Soup was created by Performer and Choreographer Deirdre Griffin in collaboration with Sound Designer Craig Cox.

'Soup is a genre-bending performance that rewrites familiar experiences in thrilling, intimate new ways' - Ruth McGowan, Dublin Fringe Director.
