Nowhere better than this place

Nowhere better than this place

Saturday, 9 September 2023, 8.30pm

Solemn and seductive music for multiple synthesisers, live and recorded concrète sounds, physical theatre and projected concrete poetry about people needing a safe place to call home. The performance combines rich visual imagery with familiar domestic soundscapes.

Seán Clancy and Andy Ingamells have worked as a duo since 2019, making theatrical musical spectacles out of anything from famous hurling matches to popular memes. “Who knew that hurling and synths went so well together!” (Tom Service, BBC Radio 3). Nowhere better than this place addresses the current threefold dilemma in Ireland of mass homelessness, unaffordable rents & mortgages, and direct provision in a way that is serious and thought-provoking yet ultimately uplifting and beautiful.
