Trickster - A site-sensitve music performance piece

Trickster (2014)

A site-sensitive music performance created with Galway artists

Trickster carries audiences on a wave of music and song, with thunderous sounds made by instruments in disguise. Internationally renowned artist and composer, Jez Colborne, takes you on a journey to beat the Trickster and get back to the people who were left behind. A powerful soundscape that tells a tale of twists and turns. Be immersed in this awe-inspiring musical experience fuelled by Jez’s fascination with all things industrial. Created in collaboration with talented performers of Galway working in partnership with That’s Life and Mind the Gap.

*Trickster is commissioned by Galway City and County Councils as part of Ignite. Ignite is managed by a unique partnership involving the Arts Council, Arts & Disability Ireland (ADI), Cork City Council, Galway City and County Councils, and Mayo County Council.
