N O X

Premiere: 2021

Solo Performance

Written and directed by James Riordan  

Music and performances by Julianna Bloodgood

NOX is an experimental site-specific solo performance of vocal and physical theatre inspired by the death lamentations and the female lamenters of Ireland. The work is the result of a residency in Rijeka, Croatia during Festival TranziT bringing together director and theatre maker James Riordan (Ireland) with vocalist and voice composer Julianna Bloodgood, formerly of Song of the Goat (Poland). NOX fuses voice, movement and story, offering audiences a chance to experience this strange, haunting and beautiful tradition that was once lost and is finding a resurgence in Ireland and across Europe.

 

Developed with the generous support of Kreativni Laboratorij Suvremenog Kazališta KRILA, a collaboration that began in 2019 during Creative Europe’s Make a Move.
