Invitation to a Journey

Inspired by Eileen Gray

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Gavin Kostick 

  • Notes

    The score by Deirdre Gribbon can be, and has been, performed separately.

  • Synopsis

    Eileen Gray defied expectations: from her innovative designs to her unconventional personal life, she challenged what it meant to be an artist, a woman and to be Irish. A true pioneer, she blurred boundaries stimulating new ways of experiencing architecture and design. Inspired by the way that Gray fused elements, Invitation to a Journey combines contemporary theatre, dance and music to create a compelling voyage into the mind of a once-forgotten, now celebrated, Irish modernist.
