Armed with a shopping trolley soundsystem, Acid Granny devise surreal ambulatory performances in collaboration with passers by in the urban landscape of Dublin City. Sampling from overheard conversations and wielding a precarious assemblage of mini synths, drum machines and potato wedges, the outfit improvise happenings in public spaces which engage the immediate environment and reflect the condition of Dublin City today. These hypnagogic moments pose site-specific questions to the audience on themes of day-to-day life, folklore, urban legend, famous figures, and personal stories. Catch them on Capel Street where they’ll be staging a pop-up performance for Culture Night Dublin 2022.
Acid Granny are a Culture Night Dublin commissioned artist funded by Dublin City Council for Awaken The Metropolis. The commission invited artists operating in any discipline to propose works that activate latent public spaces in the capital city and make connections with communities therein.
