We have again
approached the Irish Chamber Orchestra,
who we successfully have worked with before. We also approached
Daghda Dance Company, based
in Limerick, and in particular their international choreographer
Yoshiko Chuma to become part of the collaboration. The final element
of the project is inspired by the Irish-German connection that Ardnacrusha
has with Siemens, who designed and built the station in 1926. The
turbines are still in use to this day. We approached Stephanie Hecht,
Director of the renowned Berlin based experimental choir 'Der
Brullchor', to have a choral aspect of the composition.
Both past and
present workers at Ardnacrusha are also involved in the live presentation.
