Creative Connections (Cork)/Mark Storor (Birmingham) Hungry Tea
Creative Connections, a two-year intercultural project for Cork women, has been working with award-winning British artist Mark Storor. It's a Cork Midsummer Festival and Mayfield Arts Newbury House project with support from Nasc (The Irish Immigrant Support Centre).
Hungry Tea is a site-specific work about stories, secrets, beauty, laughter and desolate places. It runs from 26 to 30 June.
“...Mark Storor, who doesn’t so much rehearse theatre in a traditional manner as create an alchemical process" The Guardian
This project is co-financed by the European Commission under the European Integration Fund and is supported by the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration in the Department of Justice and Equality and Pobal.
The director of the Cork Midsummer Festival said "When we tried to imagine who might create a work with Creative Connections in 2012 I instantly thought of Mark Storor. One of the most humane and brilliant artists I’ve ever come across, he is master at working with people who never imagined they would find their stories told on stage".
