2022 Romilly Walton Master Residency and Performance Award Announced

25 April 2022

The Centre Culturel Irlandais and Dublin Fringe Festival are delighted to announce the recipients of the 2022 Romilly Walton Master Residency and Performance Award: Martha Knight and Cian Malin. Together with an ensemble, they will come to Paris to develop ‘Supermoon', an experimental opera inspired by the Notre Dame Cathedral fire and the philosophy of the sublime. The performance will be built around choreographed tableaux and arresting visual design, with a live original musical score inspired by Debussy's 'Cathédrale Engloutie'. Following this residency at the CCI, the ensemble will bring Supermoon to the Dublin Fringe Festival.

The CCI and Dublin Fringe Festival thank the Walton Masters family for their ongoing support of Irish performance-makers in memory of Romilly Walton Masters."
