To every action

The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present a new music session with music assemble Kirkos as part of our First Thursday series. Through this new series of late openings, the gallery becomes a space for hosting unexpected, experimental practices across multiple artforms from live music and expanded cinema to performance and spoken word. Join us each First Thursday for fun events with invited artists, curators and performers, showcasing artistic practices that blur boundaries. 

Kirkos is a new music group from Dublin, Ireland, as well as the operator of Unit 44, a DIY venue in Stoneybatter with a radically open approach to programming. Kirkos’ focus is on high-concept performances, and developing the ecosystem that thrives at the fringes of Irish new music.

Threading the line between experimental music and contemporary classical music, the ensemble rarely does straightforward concerts, preferring to incorporate every part of the audience’s experience into their performances. Works are devised collaboratively, incorporating elements from theatre, visual art and performance art.
