Listening Bodies, presented by Tonnta + Kirkos
Tonnta and Kirkos join creative forces for the first time to assemble Listening Bodies, an epic, once-off takeover of Smock Alley Theatre featuring world-renowned composers in dialogue with unique local voices.
The culmination of a long-term collaboration between the two ensembles, this immersive experience builds from mentorship from internationally acclaimed artists, including German composer David Helbich and Irish performance artist Amanda Coogan.
You are invited to dive into this embodied four-hour exhibition of live and installation music given by 10 performers. Weave your way with sound throughout the entire labyrinth of Dublin’s oldest theatre.
