riverrun is Fouéré’s adaptation and performance of the voice of the river ‘Life’ in James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. Work on the adaptation began in 2011, including performed readings of the work-in-progress in Dublin, Paris, Lyon and Galway.
Other artists who have contributed to the development of the work include composers Susan Stenger and Mikel Rouse, designers Monica Frawley and Paul Keogan, directors Tom Creed, Annie Ryan and Sarah-Jane Scaife and choreographer Megan Kennedy.
The world première of riverrun took place at the Galway Arts Festival 2013 on 22 July. It has also been presented at the Kilkenny Arts Festival in August 2013 and at the Dublin Theatre Festival in October 2013.
Production support for riverrun is provided by Rough Magic.
