Dance Limerick Performance Space, St.Johns Church, Johns Square

A huge floating sculpture moves ominously above the performers and audience like a hunter. As it gently swallows and spits out human beings, our imaginations wander. Moving between contemporary dance, performance art, visual art and installation, WRECK is an elastic performance hinting on contemporary slavery and capitalism where reality is left behind.

In 2018 Pietro Marullo traveled to Limerick to recreate the piece especially for Dance Limerick’s performance venue. Marullo selected three Irish dance artists via an open call for this performance. The chosen performers are Isabella Oberländer, Deirdre Griffin and Kate Haughton.

Pietro Marullo is an Aerowaves Twenty18 Artist.
