Distillation

A performative journey which takes you to the Irish bog landscape through scent.

Tuesday June 25 | Campbell House Museum

June 2024 - On Sale Soon

A performative journey which takes you to the Irish bog landscape through scent.

 

Part interactive lecture, part performance, Distillation features original text, video, sound design, and sculpture. The audience are seated around a large custom-made table and are gently invited to hold organic materials and smell parts of the landscape as part of the experience. The perfume featured as part of the project was designed by Joan Woods, who collected and distilled botanicals from the Irish Midlands as part of the creative process. Each audience member is gifted a small sample of the custom-made perfume as part of the performance.

 

The project premiered as part of Dublin Theatre Festival 2023. A co-production by Abbey Theatre & Solas Nua. Commissioned by Solas Nua, with support from Goethe-Institut Ireland.
