Massive Owl come to Temple Bar’s Project Arts Centre next week with Castle Rock.
Massive Owl, previously artists-in-residence during Live Collision International Festival in 2015, present their latest artistic offering to an Irish audience. We want to know who they are, and find out more about the show.
The company is made up of three collaborators: Jenny Duffy; Sam Powell; and Danny Prosser. Massive Owl describe themselves as ‘a collaborative performance company based in Bristol who make cinematic work that sits between theatre and live art. We tell stories and in the process challenge how stories can look, sound and feel.’
Castle Rock hits Project Arts Centre on March 4th and 5th. Massive Owl describe the piece, asking us to ‘imagine if, instead of Rob Reiner making Stand By Me, the cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s novella The Body, that David Lynch made a live art/theatre show of it. Then, you might have imagined something that looks and feels a lot like Massive Owl’s Castle Rock. […] Castle Rock is a distortion of the The Body and Stand By Me. It is a new story about loss and the acceptance of loss told through the meeting of three of the voiceless characters from the original story: a boxing gloved boy with a death wish, a train in white suit and a deer in black patent stilettos.’
Castle Rock runs in Project Arts Centre, Dublin on March 4th and 5th.
