Dance company Junk Ensemble have announced Powerful Trouble, a special Dublin Theatre show from October 11th to 15th to take place at the RHA (The Royal Hibernian Academy) in Dublin.
Junk Ensemble’s Powerful Trouble is an immersive performance installation “merging visceral movement, striking visuals and live sound, audiences will be led promenade-style by the performers through The RHA and encounter a collision of artists’ responses, interrogations, and radical celebrations of the witch as a symbol of dissidence.”
Powerful Trouble follows on from Ritual which was performed as part of Cork Midsummer Festival.
6 performers/dancers Lucia Kickham, Julie Koenig, Salma Ataya, Robyn Byrne, Yumi Lee and Justine Cooper are joining the original Ritual team of collaborators, visual artists Jesse Jones and Aideen Barry for the show.
Vicky Langan and Olwen Fouéré are collaborating artists while Sarah Jane Shiels is on lighting and scenography and Katie Davenport is responsible for costume design.
Music and sound design is by composer Irene Buckley with percussionist Caitríona Frost and additional composition by Planningtorock. Katie Kim will close the show.
