An exploration of Irish design through the medium of virtual reality

Presented in Virtual Reality, this exhibition of Irish stage design is curated by Jo Mangan, Artistic Director of Carlow Arts Festival and The Performance Corporation. We meet designers and their work within a Virtual Reality world – in their studios, on stage, in 360 visualisations, and during the inevitable destruction of their creations. We experience the reality that stage design exists for short and beautiful periods of time and we bear witness to the difficulty of capturing the essence of live experience.

Featured designers are: John Comiskey, Peter Power, Katie Davenport, Sarah Jane Shiels, Ciaran Bagnall, Niall Rea and Catherine Fay.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
