The Alchemist (2020)

Originally planned for presentation on Culture Night and Halloween 2020, these performances were cancelled as a result of Covid restrictions. We did manage a small happening in December 2020 when our friends "Great White Lies" filmed a couple of live Christmas tunes against the backdrop of some of our new Christmasy lanterns in a cold wet secluded barn outside Carndonagh, click this link to view.

As part of the Arts Council Covid Completion Project we were also (eventually) able to film 4 short videos with our 4 main performance partners and more of the lanterns and props we had created during lockdown. These were filmed in secluded rural locations between June and July 2021 once the second phase of restrictions had eased.

Four Videos have been produced, the first of which can be viewed by clicking the link below:
THE ALCHEMIST: FIRE & LIGHT (2020) Performed by In Your Space Circus. Location: Gransha Woods, Derry
THE ALCHEMIST: POTIONS (2020) Performers by FusionEvents. Location Glebe Gallery, Churchill, Donegal
THE ALCHEMIST: SEA AND SKY (2020) Performed by Zona Dance, Location: Kinnego Bay, Inishowen, Donegal

The final video is in the final stages of editing:
Aislingi Dance Academy. Location: Inishowen Carnival Shed, Malin, Donegal

The work was finally presented to a public audience on Culture Night, September 2021 in Letterkenny Town Park alongside work created for our "Lifeforms (2021)" production.
