Body And Forgetting – Liz Roche Company
We’re just back from shooting a video for The Liz Roche Company’s production: ‘Body And Forgetting’ at the Abbey Theatre. A stunning show to say the least.
Incredibly gripping performances by the dancers. A must see for anyone interested in contemporary dance or who is looking for something a little bit surprising and unconventional.
The Show is running at The Abbey Theatre on the Peacock Stage until the 2nd February, and then goes on tour around the country.
So the DVDs are ready to rock for Back Street Dance Studio’s Xmas show: ‘Alice In Funkyland’. And what a show it was. It was an incredible night at the Helix, showcasing the talented students and tutors from the school, and we were very proud to be there to record the event and produce the DVDs for them.
Congratulations to Nikki & Tina & all the kids & crew. It was a phenomenal show, and you have done yourselves proud!

Phew! We’re just back from shooting this year’s Back Street Dance Studio’s Xmas Show: ‘Alice In Funkyland’ at the Helix. Wow, what a show! Those kids can dance! Kudos to the team, Nikki & Tina, & all the kids. We had a blast, thanks for having us!
Now off to do some editing & get ready for the holidays! Happy Xmas Everyone!
Here’s a promotional video we created for ‘Guerilla Days In Ireland’: a play that’s currently on tour around Ireland and getting some really positive feedback. It’s based on the book by Tom Barry, an account of his time with the IRA. It has been adapted for stage by Neil Pearson, who also directs.
We also worked on some visuals and video content for the play itself which was a little different from what we usually do, but turned out really well I’m happy to report! You’ll no doubt see posters advertising this around, or hear the radio ad that’s in circulation, but you should certainly go to see it. It’s a very powerful piece of theatre.
Well we’ve just come off the back of a very successful run of Martin Crimp’s ‘Attempts On Her Life’, presented by the UCD School of English Drama & Film, and directed by Neil Pearson.
The Play was written by Crimp in 1997 and is regarded by many as one of the high points of experimental theatre, of any theatre, written in the last quarter-century. Which is how Kerbute became involved. Neil wanted this incarnation of the play to have a strong media element, mixing live & pre-recorded imagery and we were very pleased to be asked to come aboard with the project.
I have to say, although this may have been a student play, there was certainly nothing amateur about it’s vision or its execution. The large cast delivered outstanding performances, and Neil really brought a dimension to the work that doesn’t exist in the script. There are some genuinely chilling moments mixed in with some sharp humor, altogether very entertaining and thought provoking.
The play ran from the 16th to the 19th. For full credits & info, check out the Projects Arts Center website here. I have to say, I enjoyed this project immensely. Choreographing the live & pre-recorded content was challenging and exciting, and I think the overall combination was stunning. Thanks to Luke Duggan from CTN for his dedication and skilled camera work.

Check back soon for some video highlights from the play, and see what we were getting up to!
