Junk Ensemble, in residence in Cork, (Co-Artistic Directors and Choreographers Jessica and Megan Kennedy) are collaborating with a variety of artists from different disciplines to create an original and distinctive dance opera A Different Wolf that dovetails specially commissioned dance, music and design. We are engaging with a number of different communities and cultures in Cork through open discussion and interviews, which have informed the creation of the piece. The personal testimonies of these intercultural individuals have guided the choreography that underpins the production, in addition to inspiring and informing the lyrics of the libretto. We are collaborating with two local choirs from Cork School of Music and Cór Gael. The choristers, comprising of 100 singers, will perform in the work alongside the professional musicians, singers and dancers.
This funding allow a professional sound recording of the musicians, singers and community choirs performing the live composition from A Different Wolf. The recording will be made into a podcast, which will be available for members of the public to download for free from Cork City Council’s website and Junk Ensemble & Dumbworld websites. The piece will be recorded on the 17th June.
We have organised the professional recording to be available from the end of June.
