Rather Gather presents a transcultural collaborative multilingual creation: Fusion Murga on the stage in a flamboyant, satirical, musical comedy about Ireland’s housing crisis.
Fusion Murga is an inclusive collaborative performance group, interdisciplinary, multilingual and transcultural. It includes artists and arts lovers affected by histories of migration collaborating cross-culturally.
Murga is an instantly recognisable musical style associated with carnival. It’s music, theatre, satire, comedy, drumming, drag, clown, choir and much more! As a style it is present in its varieties in many parts of the world.
Fusion Murga collective brings the Murga tradition into modern day Dublin. That means enriching it with the different realities, talents, skills and ideas of its members who at the same time experience a plurality of identities. In Fusion Murga, the different cultural, social, gender and ethnic identities that affect all of its members come together to redefine this traditional form of expression. Most importantly we choose to work collectively, respecting each member’s individual experience, through cross-cultural collaboration and non-hierarchical processes.
Come see our work in progress on the Smock Alley Main Stage on Saturday 25th of February at 2pm.
