The Douglas Hyde Gallery of Contemporary Art is excited to present a new work by renowned performance artist Amanda Coogan, Deaf artists Lianne Quigley and Alvean Jones with Dublin Theatre of the Deaf (DTD), Cork Deaf Community Choir (CDCC), and students from the Centre for Deaf Studies (CDS) at Trinity College Dublin. Freude! Freude! is a live exhibition, an embodied performance and installation which translates Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ode to Joy chorus into Irish Sign Language (ISL) and reinterprets his entire Symphony No. 9 in D minor through the lens of the Deaf experience. Using ISL as a choreographic language, Amanda Coogan, Alvean Quigley and Lianne Jones have worked with DTD, CDCC and students from CDS to produce a new aural, visual, and immersive feast that will be presented through a series of performances and exhibition installation.
