Music For Cranes

Dublin is being torn down and transformed. 

Every route through town forces you past the shell of a place you used to love: a venue, a café, a community space. It’s impossible to imagine Dublin without cranes, the symbol nobody asked for. 

But what if they were used to build something that would benefit us all? In an outdoor performance reading Dublin’s cranes as musical notation, we’ll play music to them – and to you – remembering Dublin’s past, imagining its future.


Supported by the Arts Council / An Comhairle Ealaíon, Dublin City Council and Waterways Ireland

Please note: this performance takes place outdoors, please dress appropriately
