Liv O'Donoghue
AFTER 
In Association with Dublin Dance Festival
Mermiad Arts Centre | Thursday 9 May at 8pm

This is it. It’s over. The end of days. Humanity and the world as we know it are ending and we’ve stared deep into the abyss to make a documentary for you. It’s a rough cut, but it’s the best we could do under the circumstances. Using live-stream film, physicality and performance, we see the stages of the breakdown, the fallout, all that passed. AFTER will take you into the beyond, the bit after the end, when it’s already over. It’s a relief... almost.

Tickets: €16/14
