Gare St Lazare Ireland presents Here All Night The Sound of Beckett

25 April 2018

Tickets: €25/€20

A hypnotic journey into the musical mind of Samuel Beckett by master interpreters, Gare St Lazare Ireland who were described by the New York Times as "The Unparalleled Beckett Champions’!

In exploring the use of music in Samuel Beckett’s work Gare St Lazare have created an entirely original performance that defies easy description.  A meditation, a celebration, an interpretation; Here All Night’s non-linear musical narrative frees us to go where the words and music bring us and offers another way to access both Beckett’s world and our own.  

Conceived and created by Judy Hegarty Lovett, Conor Lovett, Paul Clark and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Featuring texts and music by Samuel Beckett and an original artwork by Brian O’Doherty.
