JOLT (almost two)

16 Apr

It was about this time last year that a team of local artists attacked the Town Hall Studio with cloths, paint brushes and the type of gusto they would normally apply to a performance. The result was a sparkling clean revamped Studio space, all ready for the first installment of JOLT performances. So it is fitting then that almost a year later another team of artists are set to re-enter the performance space with shiny new ideas under the second phase of JOLT.

Last Saturday Mary Conroy, Genevieve Taricco, Yvonne Coughlan, Martin Sharry, Richard Walsh and Feilim O’hAolain participated in our day-long workshop with Grace Dyas and Barry O’Connor and after thrashing out ideas, stepping in different directions and reaching some conclusions, the artists now begin a week of rehearsal in the Town Hall Theatre. They will perform short extracts of their works in progress on Saturday 21st April at 7pm in the Town Hall Studio and invite audience feedback for future development. Entry is free and all are welcome.

With themes ranging from the death of a comedian to a synthetic beach, the effects of social media to a conversation without words, this new batch of performances promises to be diverse, ambitious and original so don’t frickin miss it.
