Carpet Theatre presents BREATH, a music play by Ciarán Taylor with Steve Wickham and Karl Quinn at Roscommon Arts Centre tonight (Thursday, January 20 ) at 6.30pm.
Rock/folk fiddler Steve Wickham of The Waterboys, joins actor Karl Quinn to playfully explore our recent experiences; combining classical, folk and rock on fiddle, concertina, and a didgeridoo -played like never before!
We've all been holding our breath, but for one man, the family working and studying at home, is building up the pressure.... along with the sanitising, news overload, and work Zooms.... He's trying to hold it together with online yoga, home baking, and dancing in the kitchen... but one sneeze could blow it all apart! Carpet Theatre’s Breath is infused with the joy of music, and the whisper of hope, as everybody catches their breath.
Steve Wickham has been based in Sligo for many years, and previously worked with director Ciarán Taylor and Carpet Theatre actor Karl Quinn on the successful Pigeon, and the site-specific Wexford Firestation Tour. He has played with the greats of Irish rock, with his band No Crows; and toured the world with The Waterboys since the 1980s.
Carpet Theatre have been touring lively explorations of Irish life at home and abroad since 2004; including their hit shopping satire The Blanch and Two for Dinner for Two a music play with live cooking. Breath is supported by the Arts Council and the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Arts Fund in partnership with Business to Arts.
