Markets & Opera for Culture Night at The Digital Hub — 22nd September

The eighteenth edition of Culture Night will take place on Friday, 22nd September 2023.

We Love Markets will hold a special Culture Night market from 4pm to 9pm at their usual spot at The Digital Hub campus. The Scorched Earth Trilogy — a projected video and sound installation experienced through your headphones —will take place at 8.30pm at The Digital Hub.

On Culture Night visitors to the special flea market can expect a variety of market traders showcasing the best local design, arts, crafts, vintage, home decor, vinyl records and bric-a-brac, alongside artisan foods and baked goods. Keep updated on their Instagram.

The Scorched Earth Trilogy is a trio of satirical films inspired by environmental disaster and the lack of serious climate action. The short works tackle some of our most pressing concerns with coruscating humour and wit using a highly original mix of street art, animation, contemporary orchestral music and opera in their search for answers.

The Scorched Earth Trilogy features a projected video and sound installation experienced through your headphones, with the audio transmitted by Isolde, a ground-breaking new mobile app, developed by Nuwa for Irish National Opera in consultation with Dumbworld  and funded as part of the Next Stage Initiative from Fedora and Opera Europa.
