Unwrapped

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

I know it’s late, but I was working on a project out in Tallaght recently entitled ‘Unwrapped’. Involved telling the story of the Holly King and Oak King battling it out, with the Oak King being victorious and waking up the Spring Maiden while he’s at it (and singing this song).

Here’s a sample of one of the pieces:

There were singers, poets, performers, composers, costume makers and more involved; my role was to create some artwork that encapsulated the story and could be projected onto the Rua Red building over five nights. The first four nights told a piece of the story (like the piece above), with the whole thing coming together on the fifth and final night, which looked like this:

There was a huge performance piece involving a procession through the square, three choirs, several tableaux vivantes and the lighting of the Christmas tree by the Mayor of  South Dublin. The event was a great success: really well attended and loads of original new artwork created, be it the costumes, the poem written by Sue Hassett, the choral compositions from Gerry Horan or indeed my illustration stuff. Check the video:

Big shouts to Tony Fegan, Tori Durrer, Gerry Horan and the Alt Ents crew for making this happen!
