ABOUT THE WORK
For Art Night, award winning dancer and choreographer Oona Doherty will work with collaborator and filmmaker Luca Truffarelli to stage Lazarus Multiverse. The commission brings the camera on stage for an immersive performance that draws on Doherty’s earlier solo work Hope Hunt and the Ascension Into Lazarus and her exhibition Death of Hunter. From car crashes and house parties into transcendent angels, Lazarus Multiverse forms part of a series of collaborations and reimagings, recycling the artist’s previous works into new mutations – ‘the show is never finished, it is its own beast which will grow and change’.
