Possession by Amanda Coogan

Opening from 21st – 23rd June, as part of this years Cork Midsummer Festival, is Possession, a new opera from artist and QSS studio member Amanda Coogan, and composer Linda Buckley along with collaborators Alvean Jones, Lianne Quigley and the Cork Deaf Community Choir.

Based on a script from the deaf artist Teresa Deevy telling the story of An Táin through the eyes of Queen Medb, combining Irish Sign Language with experimental sonic and vocal composition, this immersive production explores one of Ireland’s foundational myths with a fresh perspective on diversity in storytelling, connecting our past with our future.

You can get tickets via the Cork Midsummer Festival website for this weekend’s performances, taking place at the Granary Theatre.
