Murmuration’s work seeks to reposition audiences in relation to their surroundings, creating vivid imaginary worlds. They have performed in bars, shopfronts, glass-walled galleries and public squares, without physically augmenting any of those spaces; aiming to find the extraordinary in ordinary and unlikely locations. The collective believe this approach to be particularly urgent now, when cultural spaces seem to be shrinking and becoming less accessible.
Murmuration formed in 2018 to present Summertime at Dublin Fringe Festival where it was nominated for a Judges Choice Award. In 2019, the production was shown at Drogheda Arts Festival and at the Abbey Young Curators’ Festival. In 2020 their second production, Will I See You There, premiered at Dublin Fringe Festival and they presented so close i noticed my breath on the glass as part of Corcadorca’s SHOWonline.
