Somewhere in a city, a young woman sits in a bedsit, alone with her violin. Thoughts race through her mind as she goes about her day.
This multi-sensory performance is a collaboration between some of the most exciting artists in contemporary Irish music and theatre. Originally inspired by the life and music of 12th century visionary Hildegard of Bingen, this evocative combination of sound and visuals creates a tangible sense of a life explored on stage.
Like an opera without singers, this meditative and moving wordless performance combines virtuoso violin playing with a haunting electronic soundscape. Created by leading Irish composer Ian Wilson, performed by acclaimed violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan, and directed by rising star Tom Creed, Una Santa Oscura delves into one woman's solitude and loss, creating a truly original and memorable experience.
