Commissioned by IMMA and presented in association with Dublin Fringe Festival.

This is a new live work by artist Eddie Peake, commissioned by IMMA, as part of the exhibition Desire: A Revision from the 20th Century to the Digital Age.

Looping motifs — sonic and danced — layered one over the other, purposely confounding and spasmodically synchronising with one another are presented in the form of a three-phased, non-linear narrative featuring four gold-painted protagonists. Spiralling choreographic patterns of movement and sound make manifest abstract phenomena such as depression, psychosis, obsession and desire.

Performed by Emma Fisher, Sara Lupoli, Kieram Corrin Mitchell and Eddie Peake.


Desire: A Revision runs at IMMA from 21 September 2019 until 22 March 2020.

Desire: A Revision is proudly supported by Kildare Village.
