Theatre performance Everybody Sings comissioned by Bealtaine for Bealtaine Festival 2018.

Theatre: Everybody Sings at Bealtaine Festival (audio described and captioned performance)

16 May 2018 (Past)

Smock Alley Theatre

Everybody Sings 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.

The performance is led by artist, Shaun Dunne, in close collaboration with film designer, Luca Truffarelli. Commissioned by Age & Opportunity. Supported by Dublin City Council Arts Project Award. Co-Produced by Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray. Curated by Brokentalkers & facilitated by Ozanam House, Dublin.

This new work seeks to explore changing attitudes towards age, 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.

Audio described and captioned performance on Wednesday 16th May 2018 at 7.30pm
In partnership with Arts & Disability Ireland, Everybody Sings will be audio described and captioned on the 16th May. Please let box office know if you require an audio description headset or seat suitable for captioning. We invite audiences who found the audio description and open captions useful to stay and chat to us about how we can create better accessible experiences at Bealtaine Festival. Speech to text and ISL will be provided during this chat.
