Body Noise Work, a Kirkos Ensemble project focusing on the creation of performance-based works exploring the body and its surroundings, led by the composer Jennifer Walshe.
The artists of Body Noise Work came together during a series of intensive workshops in and around Carrick-on-Shannon led by mentors Jennifer Walshe, John Godfrey, Vicky Langan and EL Putnam. The artists came from core disciplines of music (Sebastian Adams, Robbie Blake, Robert Coleman, Seán Ó Dálaigh and Susan Geaney), visual art (Sarah Ellen Lundy -Visual + Sound Artist), interdisciplinary art (Natasha Bourke) and dance (Ruairí Donovan, Laura Sarah Dowdall), but all are deeply engaged in multiple media.
Body Noise Work, brought together 9 artists across disciplines to create an extraordinary evening over four floors of the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios on Saturday December 8th. Each artist demolished the divide between performer and creator, pulling the audience into brave new spaces and building their own separate but colliding worlds. Throughout the project ran the theme of interconnectedness between spaces, artists, and disciplines, creating a multidisciplinary and participatory artistic practice.
