Trinity and The Docklands

Awaken The Metropolis: Acid Granny

Spencer Dock

Culture Night Dublin is excited to platform motley collective Acid Granny. 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.

This performance is part of an exciting programme of events at Spencer Dock for Culture Night Dublin 2022. Explore what else is happening at this venue in our web listings.
Presented in partnership with Waterways Ireland, the North East Inner City, and Dublin Port.
