Crash 25! [REACTIONS] screening
Irish Film Institute, Temple Bar, Dublin

Crash Ensemble present [REACTIONS]
An honest, human and emotive response for now and the future.
In 2022, Crash Ensemble celebrate their most significant birthday to date - the 25th! This screening of [REACTIONS] films is part of a series of events to celebrate this milestone.
Amidst the onset of the global pandemic, Crash Ensemble commissioned Irish & International composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group.
Building on existing collaborative partnerships and cultivating and nurturing new relationships, composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future.
Each composer documented their creative process with text and imagery, offering a fly on the wall view of the composers’ studio spaces, visual imagery and text journaling during the creative process. The duos were recorded and filmed and this audio visual material was combined to make an accompanying film by Crash’s resident filmmaker, Laura Sheeran.
