Fri 10 & Sat 11 October 8pm

Tickets €12*/€10*

Be carried away on a wave of music and song as the Black Box booms with thunderous sounds made by instruments in disguise. Internationally renowned artist and composer, Jez Colborne, takes you on a journey to beat the Trickster and get back to the people who were left behind. A powerful soundscape that tells a tale of twists and turns. Be immersed in this awe-inspiring musical experience inspired by Jez’s fascination with all things industrial. Created in collaboration with talented performers of Galway working in partnership with That’s Life and Mind the Gap.

Trickster is an exciting music and theatre experience for all ages. It is performed promenade style, and the audience moves around during the show. When booking please tell the Box Office if you have any access requirements e.g. limited mobility or a sensory impairment.

“Everything about Galway inspires me – the port industry, the people, the weather. All these things have fuelled my passion to create a really unique music experience with the fantastic artists from That’s Life.”

- Jez Colborne, Composer
