Performance event with Lidija Šola & Sadhbh Moriarty
Pallas Projects is delighted to present a new work in progress by Lidija Šola & Sadhbh Moriarty to mark the last day of Maslow's Hammer.
Whistling Past The Graveyard is a new semi-autobiographical play in the early stages of development, after (Un)Holy Blood, the second collaboration of writer Sadhbh Moriarty and circus artist Lidija Šola.
This performance contrasts Šola's own experiences of "consumption" with the bizarre romanticization of illness in the Victorian era.
The event will mark an end to this year's Periodical Review, a long-running curatorial project which sets out to consider, revisit and review current movements within contemporary art practices from around Ireland.
Sadhbh Moriarty is a Kerry writer and playwright expatriated in Cork City. She is a recipient of the Eamonn Keane Full Length Play Award and her work has been internationally toured. Her writing sets out to give voice to the marginalised and is often tinged with elements of magical realism.@sadhbhdhbh
Lidija Šola is a Cork based-contemporary circus artist and co-founder of Tricycle Trauma, an experimental circus collective. She’s been a part of the independent art scene for over a decade as a performer, author, director and producer.
