Quote of the day.

"If you do the essential thing, everything else will be one hundred times easier".

Flea said, while teaching acrobatic technique - although I think it's good advise to bear in mind for life in general.

For Ever Love: Video piece with Laura Sheeran

Yesterday was spent helping Laura Sheeran finish the edits on our video collaboration for 'For Ever Love', the single from her upcoming album, What the World Knows, due for release on good Friday, 6th April. We shot the video a few months ago in the Sugar Club, Dublin (Thanks to Oisín!) which I previous posted about here. As previously blogged: "For Ever Love was originally featured in 'Paperdolls' as my solo music for aerial silks, complementing the feminine and sexy qualities of the fabric". Featuring the glittery visuals of Susan Walsh and Jacinta Jardine and also the costume made by Jacinta Jardine for the PaperDolls production, we also incorporated footage from the live show filmed by Bob Gallagher in the Complex during our run of "Paperdolls" at ABSOLUT Fringe 2011. The result is a spectacular culmination of an ongoing cross-disciplinary collaboration, the documentation of a previously live event, the creation of something new from that initial production and a collection of really precious personal memories of a wonderful experience and time in my life. I hope you enjoy it too!

PaperDolls Process: Soul Juncture

A little montage I enjoyed putting together of all our rehearsal videos during the development of our new piece Soul Juncture which we performed at Belfast Circus School as part of 'Fancy, A Cabaret' and Picturing the Soul at the Back Loft in Dublin last month. Fun fun fuh-un!

EA / DA (2011)

"Here is a little film I made over a year ago with the wonderful Emily Aoibheann - the first, spontaneous experiment in an ongoing collaboration..." 
Donal Foreman, film maker and awesome person! Featuring music by one night only band The Boom Boom Parade, which I was part of.  
The video auto-plays so I took it down, but you can watch it here:
