Girl Song Sa­muel Beckett The­atre, Dublin Oct 6th-8th ¤15-¤25 dublinthe­atre­fes­ti­ Re­turn­ing to the Dublin The­atre Fes­ti­val fol­low­ing 2015’s much lauded Dance­hall, Emma Martin’s in­no­va­tive com­pany United Fall pre­mieres a new work ex­plor­ing the pas­sage of a sin­gle life. Con­vey­ing an or­di­nary ex­is­tence in ex­traor­di­nary de­tails, it uses phys­i­cal move­ment and en­velop­ing im­agery to com­bine the quo­tid­ian, the haunt­ing and the ab­surd. Co-pro­duced by the Dublin The­atre Fes­ti­val and No­order­zon, the show al­ready epit­o­mises the in­ter­na­tional reach of the fes­ti­val plat­form, while the per­for­mance charts the hopes and ac­com­mo­da­tions of a sin­gle in­di­vid­ual at home.
