Led by director and co-composer Peter Power, In Clouds sees an award-winning group of artists come together to create a unique site-specific piece in Triskel Christchurch this June. This new immersive musical experience invites the audience alongside the artists, to examine the human struggle to encompass and understand scientific theory, natural phenomena and human behaviour.
Specially commissioned by Triskel Arts Centre and Cork Midsummer Festival to celebrate 40 years of Triskel, In Clouds blends original composition by Power and co-composer Michael Gallen, text by novelist Sara Baume, choral experimentation by the contemporary ensemble Tonnta led by Robbie Blake, choreography/dance by Stephanie Dufresne, and an audio visual installation by Sarah Jane Shiels and David Mathúna.
In Clouds ventures off course into a new musical world, creating an immersive experience which asks us to find comfort in a world of unknowns where we can abandon the notions of the clock for the cloud.
Experience this stunning collaboration at the Triskel Christchurch, June 15-17 (preview 14 June). Tickets €22; concession €18; previews €15 are available now from the Cork Midsummer Festival Box Office, or online at corkmidsummer.com
