Life’s many surprises have lead us away from live theatre for a while, and we have since been involved in many shorter projects including audio collaborations and sound design.
Uncorked — a lockdown project — is a curated interview with soundscape between Brigit and the brilliant Carl Prekopp.
…Which led to a continued collaboration with Carl on this series of original stories Birgit wrote and performed, featuring original music composed and played by my grandfather Frank Connell.
God and the Bird
Brigit is currently recording a new radio play by Zoe — God and the Bird.
Maud lives in a correctional facility for the elderly, but after watching Ninja Warrior she is secretly training to scale the wall of the garden… but to what end? A dark and hilarious tale of faith, murder and a generation of women who spent their life in the bathroom.
The Lion Who Roared All Night
Among other projects, Zoe is currently collaborating on a new childrens’ story The Lion Who Roared All Night with the Illustrator Lucy Burns.
Zoe is now also developing this concept into a multidisciplinary show featuring live music, live soundscaping, puppetry and storytelling with Frank and Wild Productions – a new theare company based in Aarhus, Denmark.
You can hear an audio recording of a current draft of the story here…
