When is a routine not routine? And what’s original about repetition?

Laura Murphy’s Abacus recycles the rhythms of work to create a choreography for eight dancers and sixteen buckets. Join the women as they go through their routine on the factory floor. Abacus celebrates the night shift with the harmony of coordinated movement.

Choreographer Laura Murphy in association with Firkin Crane premières Abacus at Cork Midsummer Festival 2016. Her work has been shown internationally to include the USA, UK and France, Romania, China and Canada, described by critics as “carefully constructed and impeccably performed”, “splendidly original” and “hypnotic in its pace”.
