IMMERSIVE INSTALLATION WITH PERFORMANCE

Exploring issues of human trafficking, modern-day slavery and drug farming, this large-scale immersive installation combines audio-visual and interactive sculptures, live music and performance, composed opera, projected video, spoken poetry, plant-life, CCTV and sound and lighting design; located as a multi-sensory promenade trail sited in a five story Georgian townhouse and taxi-cab. The work was commissioned by Cork Midsummer Festival and involved considerable research informed by people with lived experience of trafficking and forced labour, human justice, advocacy and support organisations, scholars, young people, students and gardeners and was produced in collaboration with filmmaker Linda Curtin, composer/sound designer Peter Power, and lighting designer Sarah Jane Shiels. The work spanned two years, was part of a 10 country organisational network ‘BePART’ and was funded by The Arts Council, the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, Cork Midsummer Festival and Cork City Council.

A glimpse into some of our research resources : what inspired, informed and moved us during the making of The Day-Crossing Farm including:

 

podcasts | trafficked stories | cannabis growing | the law | in the media | trafficking & forced labour advocacy & support | academic research | creative works | workshop activity
