Live Collision International Festival 2014 presents
Dates: 23 Apr - 26 Apr
Enter a world of bombings and kidnappings in this tense mobile phone work about political violence. To start, call a phone number marked on the wall. Choose whether you will be Ulrike or Eamon then hang up. Once you’re in position your phone rings: now your journey begins.
As you hear about the progression into violence and death you stare at the everyday surroundings. Find a vantage point, linger near a doorway or find a nearby bus shelter then use your keypad to make your choices.
Listen in on TV appearances, the firebombing of a supermarket and the night that Benno was shot by a cop on a demonstration. Or, as Eamon, you reflect on getting beaten by soldiers as a teenager, the killing of Ivan Toombs and your rise to the ‘Nutting Squad’ in charge of internal security for the IRA.
As Eamon and Ulrike reach the climax of their political actions, you too must make a choice. Hang up now and walk away. Or stay on the line…
A version of this work – Ulrike and Eamon Compliant – premiered at the Venice Biennale in 2009 and has since toured internationally. The world premiere of Dial Ulrike and Eamon Compliant took place at Frequency Festival in 2013.

An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More

Hi there, How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More
