Midwinter x Midsummer - new site-specific performance at National Sculpture Factory
Sparsile Collective, Cork Midsummer Festival and the National Sculpture Factory present
The Boundaries Between Us Endure
5 & 6 December 2019, 7.30pm & 9.30pm
National Sculpture Factory, Albert Road
Midwinter is almost here, and with it comes thoughts of Midsummer - and to celebrate, we have an extra special event for Midwinter this year, presented in partnership with the National Sculpture Factory: a new immersive, site-specific experience allowing a rare opportunity to see beyond the roller doors and on to the Factory floor. Join us and find some Midwinter magic in the darkness...
The Boundaries Between Us Endure takes you amongst sound and sculptures on the factory floor to a soundtrack of electronic music and live harp, as the space takes on new dimensions with projected visuals and lighting design. Drawing inspiration from the industrialisation of survival and its legacies, rites of passage and contemporary ceremony, The Boundaries Between Us Endure sees the collaborating artists expanding new creative horizons in an exhilarating blend of music, performance, sculpture, light and sound framed within the histories of the National Sculpture Factory itself.
Supported by Cork City Council.
