Thats Life have been announced as the Galway partner of a groundbreaking ‘Ignite’ arts commission funded by Arts and Disability Ireland, the Arts Council of Ireland and Galway City and County Council. Two other major commissions have also been announced under ‘Ignite’ in counties Mayo and Cork. The Ignite funding represents the largest ever investment in Irelands arts and disability sector.
Thats Life will work with Internationally acclaimed artist and composer Jez Colborne and the Town Hall Theatre Galway to create an awe-inspiring musical experience entitled ‘Trickster’ which will be performed next year in Galway. This musical extravaganza will be inspired by Jez’s fascination with making music using sirens, foghorns, cranes and all things industrial. Trickster will immerse Galway audiences in a wave of sounds that accompany a story that is based on a Man on a Journey from the book Odyssey.
