Embodying Glass

Co-Produced by Galway Music Residency

Selected as 'Best Movement of 2021' by theatre critic, Chris McCormack

Bodies weaponised.

Bodies victimised.

Hostages of stasis.

Captive to repetition.

We remembered.

We remembered the times before.

We remembered the times ahead.

Where do we go from here?

Produced by Galway Music Residency (GMR), Embodying Glass is a creative response to a global existential crisis. World-renowned and GMR resident ensemble ConTempo Quartet, and choreographer-performer Jérémie Cyr-Cooke (Cuisle Productions) come together to offer a new piece of dance-theatre, inspired by Philip Glass’ four-movement ‘Company’ (1983). A eulogy to lockdown.

The project is not only a celebration of our temporal beings, but a challenge of exhausting repetitions, as musicians and dancers converse about the relationship between music and our bodies.

We are creatures of time…. creatures of space. We cannot escape it. So… where do we go from here?
