TUSK Music Presents

TUSK Festival 2016

October 14-16

VICKY LANGAN

You may remember Vicky Langan as part of that great Meitheal performance at TUSK 2012 or witnessed her numerous interactions with those in the orbits of Penultimate Press or Schimpfluch or with filmmaker Maximillian Le Cain. Defining Vicky is tricky because her art takes her in many directions, from a duo with Aaron Dilloway to Sacred Harp singing, raw folk music and sometimes unsettling performance art. At TUSK this year she’ll give a series of brief performances for small audiences in a small room at Sage. We don’t know yet what to expect but, as The Wire put it, “Irish artist Vicky Langan has gained a reputation for raw and intense performances that are as likely to leave audiences feeling deeply unsettled as profoundly moved. Langan both embraces and projects vulnerability, offering an intimate physical theatre loaded with personal symbolism and unguarded emotion.”

Vicky will perform 3 sets for audiences of 10 at a time in a small space at Sage. The performances will be at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm on the Saturday – please contact us at info@tuskfestival.com to book your place.
