Biographies

Rachel-Rose O’Leary  (b. Dublin, Ireland, 1990) recently graduated with a BFA from IADT. She was awarded VAI Graduate Award for IADT and was featured in the July/ August edition of the VAN. Rachel has an ongoing interest in pataphysics and the writings of leading pataphysician René Daumal, and is excited to meet him personally at the closing event of The Centre For Dying on Stage.

CIRCUMSTANCE allowing (b. Dublin, Ireland, 2013) is a collaborative practice involving Niamh Forbes and Aoife Mullan, both of whom recently graduated with a BFA from NCAD. Circumstance Allowing acts as a notational meeting point between individual visual arts practices in an attempt to create works which, due to an exact set of circumstances, and a precise meeting of minds occurring at a particular moment in time, can become more than the sum of their parts. Niamh and Aoife recently exhibited as part of Shred! curated by Michelle Doyle in Steambox studios, and have an upcoming exhibition in Basic Space in August 2014.

Michelle O’Rourke is an Irish singer currently based in Dublin & Berlin. In recent years Michelle has found most inspiration in the work of living composers. She has been involved in the commission, premiere and touring of works by Linda Buckley, Garrett Sholdice, Benedict Schlepper-Connolly, Judith Ring and Andrew Hamilton, amongst others. Michelle performs regularly with Ergodos musicians. She has also performed as vocalist with the lauded Crash Ensemble, and as alto soloist with the RTE Concert Orchestra. Recent projects have included a song cycle for voice and chamber ensemble, titled Here I am, commissioned from Linda Buckley with support from the Irish Arts Council and Recueillement, a chamber opera by Garrett Sholdice.
