The Goethe Institute presents, in association with Project Arts Centre and Dublin Dance Festival
D is for Dodo, T is for the Tasmanian Tiger…
ABeCedarium Bestiarium is an ABC of extinct animals performed by collaborative, Berlin-based artist Antonia Baehr.
Baehr invited her artist friends to choose an extinct animal, with each animal standing for a letter of the alphabet. Based on their affinity with their chosen animal, while also reflecting on their personal friendship with Baehr, she commissioned each artist to write a score for a short solo performance.
Baehr performs these eclectic miniature solos on stage, giving herself over to the varying styles and moods of each author.
Please note this show begins at 8.00pm.
