The High Hopes Choir is the culmination of Ireland’s first homeless choir created by David Brophy with the assistance of Musical Director Carmel Whelan and Managing Coordinator Glenn Alexander. This ambitious performance-based project aims to change the public perception of homelessness whilst improving the lives of homeless people through choral singing.
Building on the success of their choral performances since 2014, the members now embark on a new journey with The Complex and its artists to present an evening of music, theatre, spoken word, visual art and poetry, exploring where the idea of home fits into the reality of homelessness.
A St. Patrick’s Festival presentation made with the support of The Complex.
WHERE WE LIVE is a ferocious response to the theme of home. It’s a kaleidoscope of stories about what it feels like to live in Dublin and Ireland today, told by some of the best storytellers on the island.
A programme of commissioned theatre pieces, work-in progress showings, dangerous ideas, live art and an exhibition.
We’re taking over the Complex in Smithfield for two weeks to tell funny, devastating, exhilarating and joyous stories that imagine and re-imagine what our city and country could be. We’re creating a TownHall, where discussion should be heated, performance will be red hot, and where opposing views are encouraged.
