There’s a ghost in my house

Áine O’Dwyer

Civil Twilight

Thursday 29 June 2017, twilight – dawn

Beginning in the evening on Thursday 29th June, and lasting until dawn the the following morning, Rhubaba will host a durational performance by Áine O’Dwyer. The performance will adopt a form determined by Aine’s exploration of Rhubaba, through the mythic and apparitional potential of a score and using gravity, ice and stones as its instruments.

Audiences are invited to attend the performance at any point in its duration.

Áine O’Dwyer’s role lies between vocalist, musician, improviser, composer, performer, listener, sonic Stalker and audience member. In recent years, the pipe organ has become an integral site for her experimentation, culminating in her new albums ‘Locusts’ and ‘Gegenschein’. Her forthcoming ‘Gallarais’ experiments with acoustic decay, and was developed during her self made residency at the Brunel tunnel shaft, London. All three releases celebrate her interests in found and forgotten spaces, chance choreographies, acoustic phenomena, the act of listening and the search for alternative scorings through a combined performativity of instruments, drawings, space, time, memory and the body.

Aine’s project is the third and final manifestation of There’s a ghost in my house – a programme of commissions in which Rhubaba invited artists Sarah Boulton, Holly Pester and Áine O’Dwyer to investigate the notion of ‘haunting’, culturally and conceptually, and occupy Rhubaba in ways that might be unexpected, unsettling or uncanny.
