After a sold-out showcase during Pitch’d Festival, the world premier of (Un)Holy Blood comes to St. Luke’s. In an unlikely collaboration between Croatian circus artist, Lidija Šola, and Kerry writer, Sadhbh Moriarty, the duo join forces to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of circus performance, merging breathtaking physical feats with an exhilarating plot.
Artist and Circus Factory Member Lidija Sola has been working on Unholy Blood for a number of years. Each time adding even more drama and captivating the audience further with each showing. This time (Un)Holy Blood will grace the alter at St.Lukes, a very fitting venue.
‘Šola performs free falls from a height and unabashedly tackles feminist issues. With immersive soundscapes and projections throughout. St. Luke’s is set to transform into the Central Cathedral of UnHoly Blood – the stronghold of the one true feminist church – for a multimedia experience, unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.’
(Un)Holy Blood written by Lidija Šola and Sadhbh Moriarty Premieres at St. Luke’s, Pushing the Boundaries of Circus Performance. A transdisciplinary performance highlighting the pitfalls of organised religion and challenging the ways we engage in feminism, (Un)Holy Blood is a subversive blend of contemporary circus, theatre, dance and visual art.
Reputed to be the most captivating sermon you’ll ever witness, mark your calendars for May 6th – this is not a mass you’ll want to miss. Support local artists and get your tickets for (Un)Holy Blood.
