Possession by Amanda Coogan

Possession….desire for it causes all the trouble

An audacious new opera bringing the artist Amanda Coogan and composer Linda Buckley together with collaborators Alvean Jones, Lianne Quigley and the community artists of the Dublin Theatre of the Deaf. Based on a script from the deaf artist Teresa Deevy,  Possession  muses on the story of An Taín told through the eyes of Queen Medb. Combining Irish Sign Language with experimental sonic and vocal composition, this production explores one of our foundational myths with a fresh perspective on diversity in storytelling, connecting our past with our future.

A feast for the senses – an incomparable opera. Working from Coogan’s visual practice, Buckley’s music of mythic magic and the physical and visual language of Irish Sign Language.

Possession is part of ART:2023 – A Decade of Centenaries
