Prometheus Now 

Gaitkrash Theatre Company, in collaboration with pianist Gabriela Mayer, invoke the figure of Prometheus to re-ignite the spark of hope & renewal. This unique & compelling online performance features an exciting blend of cross-disciplinary art forms: classical piano, theatre, sound art & videography.

...spellbinding fusion of fluid and spectral imagery... Specialists in sorcery, theatre artists Bernadette Cronin and Regina Crowley, with Mick O’Shea’s sound scheme, Harry Moore’s filming and editing and pianist Gabriela Mayer’s melding of Schumann, Lizst and improvisation, created a smouldering evocation of a myth still applicable to humanity’s reliance on blind hopefulness.

A Conversation with Beethoven and Shakespeare

Created by Regina Crowley and Gabriela Mayer,

and featuring Eanna Hardwicke

Sound Design: Cormac O’Connor

This sound installation explored a creative dialogue between fragments of piano music and dramatic text, inviting the audience into a ‘listening oasis’ on the open terrace of the Blackrock Castle . The possibility to  experience space and sound in a different way is explored. 

 

Some notes: a sequence of piano sounds first played in Vienna over 200 years ago. 

Other notes: observations spoken on stage in London 400 years ago.

 

As part of this very special event, the Blackrock Castle Observatory encoded and beamed the sound file to a distant exoplanet and its parent star. The transmission will take many years to reach its destination. 

The show was featured again as part of the MTU Space Week in October 2023 in Contemplative Garden in Nano Nagle Place.
