A work in progress
What happens when a performer presents newspaper articles to a live audience? We look at the ways this liveness changes the articles, and also the way the articles change the performer. It’s an examination of how people process information and how this in turn informs our contemporary aural/oral culture.
Walter Benjamin says information is something that loses its value once it has been understood – whereas story is something that bears repeating.
This experimental theatre, which is traditionally an endeavour at repetition, is used to unpack what ‘bears repeating’ from the news.
This project has been developed with help from The Arts Council, The Irish Theatre Institute, Pan Pan Theatre and Live Collision.
