Spike, Dublin’s alternative cello festival, will be back for its third installation Friday 8th-Sunday 10th February 2019 in venues across Dublin. After the festival’s hugely successful, entertaining and innovative 2017 & 18 incarnations, the 2019 programme will present unique events with some of the most talented and exciting cello artists & friends from home and abroad.
PERFORMANCES | The Devil’s Violin present Stolen / Semay Wu Performance Installation
The festival will culminate with two exciting performances on the Sunday night, firstly Stolen, a play for adults with screens, cellos and violins from The Devil’s Violin. The Devil’s Violin create music and storytelling shows that receive standing ovations and evoke passionate responses from their diverse audience. Their new work Stolen promises to be a journey through a kaleidoscopic world of giant poppies, frozen horses and shimmering forests of silver and gold… The Times Literary Supplement described one of their previous works as an “enchantment, a work that walks the line between life and death, between what we are and what we might become; which recognises with the power of voice and the power of music, that there is magic everywhere.” The same night, upstairs in the Vintage Room from 9.30pm, composer, media artist, cellist & performer Semay Wu will present her electronic and visual world. Tickets for Sunday evening are valid for both performances, and audiences will be encouraged to wander (and wonder) into Semay’s world in their own time and space.
