The story of Ireland’s last Witch Trial
‘The Song of the Bones’ is a piece of dark, immersive storytelling gig theatre; merging our electronic pop music with puppetry and spoken word poetry, to tell the tale of the Islandmagee Witch trials in 1711
Using elements of traditional Irish folk tales, mysticism, and feminism, the show was created by Claire McCartney & Beccy Henderson of VOKXEN, featuring spellbinding narratives by award-winning performance poet Alice McCullough, haunting puppetry by Claire Roi Harvey (Star Wars/The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), and earthy musical percussion by David McLaughlin (The Blue Man Group).
The Songs of the Bones is part of the University of Atypical’s Bounce Arts Festival 2022 programme in collaboration with the Lyric Theatre.
