Christchurch Cathedral, Thursday 25th and Friday 26th Oct 2018 at 8pm
Truth, we are told, is dead. If so, then who organises the funeral?
Stomptown Brass, the outrageously energetic 10-piece street-funk
band, and Collapsing Horse, the most exciting young theatre company
in Ireland, invite you to join them as they take on an audacious task: to
host a funeral for the Truth. Witness the colourful exuberance of the
Haitian Voodoo-inspired New Orleans jazz funeral as it smashes up
against the mournful, solemn ceremony of religion. An extravagant, chaotic
street party, with a dark twist.
Stomptown Brass has emerged as one of the most unique acts in Ireland in recent times. Blending the sounds of funk and blues with a raucous cacophony of powerful driving rhythms, Stomptown Brass make the most of their impressive line-up: three Drummers, three Trombones, two Trumpets, one Saxophone and one big dirty Tuba.
