THE second work produced as part of Pulse II, City of Culture’s theatre legacy project, gets an airing this Friday night.

Limbo, an artistic response to the growing crisis around the Direct Provision system, sees theatre practitioner Maeve Stone collaborate with dance artist Angie Smalis and musician Rory Grubb for the intriguing piece.

Merging the talent of Smalis’ movement with Grubb’s distinctive musical composition, Stone has drawn on the recent media hysteria around the asylum seekers and their accomodation to find an artistic response to this often invisible issue.

“What is direct provision and how do we start to talk about it? In a short piece that fuses movement and live music, we begin to trace the snakes and ladders of a story so close, it’s nearly impossible to see,” she says.

“I’m putting the audience at the heart of this work and asking myself how do you make the invisible visible?” she adds.

Everything Sometimes, a work based on memory, death and fraternal ties, will also take place on November 29.
