Death at Intervals 2016




Inspired by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago’s darkly humorous novel and developed in collaboration with an award winning creative team, Death at  Intervals combines theatre, music and original  song lyrics in an unconventional and touching  duet between death and her musician. Adapted by Kellie Hughes from José Saramago’s novel As Intermitências da Morte  (translator Margaret Jull Costa) in collaboration with  Olwen Fouéré, Raymond Scannell and Alma Kelliher


Embodied at the GPO (As part of Dublin Dance Festival)

 What the press had to say about Deep:

Deep isn’t just the title of Raymond Scannell’s fascinating new play, but an indication of how far it digs and how much it reflects.

Peter Crawley, The Irish Times. 

Like ravers evicted from the house party after the club, we the audience find ourselves afterwards walking the rain-slicked streets… beneath dull autumn streetlights taking it all in.

Jim Carroll, The Irish Times
