'Soup is a genre-bending performance that rewrites familiar experiences in thrilling, intimate new ways' - Ruth McGowan, Dublin Fringe Director

Soup is a kinetic shrine to my mother and an absurd meditation on the process of grief. It exists inside a fey mirror world built out of vegetables, polystyrene heads, the kitchen table and inhabited by a sinuous doppelgänger. Performed with a mutant physicality, it is simultaneously brutish, sensual, ridiculous, and vulnerable.

Soup see-saws between hilarious and harrowing as it reaches for a shared state of catharsis with the audience.

Soup was created by performer and choreographer Deirdre Griffin in collaboration with sound designer Craig Cox.
