This showing of a work in progress, Everybody Sings, is commissioned by Age & Opportunity for Bealtaine festival and is a candid and poignant examination of the relationship between intimacy and ageing and was developed in collaboration with a group of older citizens whose stories and experiences are presented through music, film and live performance.
Everybody Sings is led by artist, Shaun Dunne, in close collaboration with film designer, Luca Truffarelli.
This new work seeks to explore Ireland’s developing attitudes towards sex and sexuality by fusing testimony, film and live performance. Questions on consent and capacity, bereavement and break-ups will be mindfully explored and demystified through the stylized abstraction of lived experience and inspired narrative. Everybody Sings is supported by Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre
Following on from RAPIDS (Dublin Theatre Festival, 17), this production marks Shaun Dunne’s first work for Bealtaine.
