“I’m working with choreographer Philip Connaughton on his show TARDIGRADE, which runs at Tiger Dublin Fringe from 9-13 September.
TARDIGRADE is a kaleidoscopic feast of raucous dance, luscious live music for choir, string quartet and piano, video projection, outlandish costumes… and a virtual dog.
It’s inspired by the microscopic world of tardigrades (which are extremely hardy little creatures that live in almost every habitat on earth — they’ve even been sent into the vaccum of space – and survived), along with the wild colour of [Hieronymus] Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights and Star Wars. It creates sensory overload — so you have to decide whether to focus on some tiny details or whether to let the madness whisk you away.”
