Luke Murphy/Attic Projects – “On Triumph and Trauma”
Inspiring…Murphy’s work is not to be missed.
WORLD STAGE RESIDENCY PREVIEW
During a weeklong creative residency, Luke Murphy develops bold choreography and a constantly shifting visual environment for his newest work, On Triumph and Trauma, a poetic exploration of a turning point in Irish history and identity. In 1916, armed Irish republicans mounted a failed insurrection to end British rule known as the Easter Rising—events that reverberate across nearly 100 years of the nation’s political life. Murphy’s visceral work for four dancers draws on eyewitness accounts, political transcripts and the scholarship of some of Ireland’s most accomplished writers to examine the nationalism, sacrifice, violence and memory that drive an endless waltz of tragedy and triumph.
Part of KST’s World Stage Series, made possible with support from The Benter Foundation and contributors to the World Stage Fund.
