Gare St Lazare Ireland presents
Here All Night
The Sound of Beckett
First presented at Brighton Festival in 2013, and since performed at Lincoln Center, New York, and in Boston and London, Here All Night returns home for its Irish premiere.
In celebrating the use of music in Beckett’s work, Gare St Lazare Ireland has created an entirely original performance that defies easy description. A meditation, a celebration, an interpretation…its absence of linear narrative frees us to go where the words and music take us.
With an original score by UK composer Paul Clark, and improvised fiddle by Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, the work has evolved to include a collaboration with distinguished Irish artist Brian O’Doherty (fomerly aka Patrick Scott) as well as movement by Irish choreographer John Scott.
Here All Night features:
Soprano - Melanie Pappenheim
Actor - Conor Lovett
Hardanger d'amore - Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh
Cello - Chris Allan
Piano - John Paul Gandy
As well as an all-female choir from the USA and UK in a truly international collaboration.
Conceived and created by Judy Hegarty Lovett, Conor Lovett, Paul Clark and Caoimhín Ó’Raghallaigh.
Featuring texts and music by Samuel Beckett.
