As part of our Response Series, The Douglas Hyde is delighted to announce a Writer’s Response where writer Stephen Sexton will respond to the work of Bassam Al-Sabah and his current exhibition: IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THIS
A Body of Noise
In this movement- and sound-based workshop, writer, composer and choreographer Deirdre Murphy will explore one of the key systems of our species: community. It will be a radical look at the contexts in which we have meaningful interaction. Participants will tune in with their bodies, voices and the room through a series of task-based exercises. There will be humming and singing, spontaneous ritual, partner work, and an exploration of interacting outside of social norms – creating a physical laboratory to redefine social relations. Please wear clothing which is comfortable to move in. If you have a yoga mat, please bring it.
No experience is necessary – this workshop is open to all and will appeal particularly to those with an interest in physical and sound-based practices as a route to expanding the horizons of social relations.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
