Vicky Langan (Wölflinge) performances

Howye,

If any of ye are interested, I've uploaded some past performances onto a vimeo account. (http://vimeo.com/vickylangan/)










Vicky Langan's "vulnerable, emotionally charged performances" (The Wire) envelop audiences in an often troublingly intense aura of dark intimacy. In opening herself emotionally, she creates warm yet discomforting rituals that at once embrace the viewers and remain resolutely private, exploring the limits of what can be shared between people and what must remain mysterious.

Her performance practice operates across several often overlapping fields, chiefly live art, sound, and film. Wölflinge, her solo project, makes use of flesh, fluid and self built instruments. Her work in the field of sound has earned her the title of "Queen-Bee of Irish Noise" (Cork Independent). She has performed widely, both solo and in collaboration with Paul Hegarty (La Société des Amis du Crime), the Quiet Club, United Bible Studies, and many more.

More recently, she has been collaborating with experimental filmmaker Maximilian Le Cain in a series of videos that further expand the scope of her performance work.

As a curator, she is best known for Black Sun, her regular weirdo/outer limits music night which takes place in Cork, through which she has brought many renowned makers of strange sounds from around the world to play for the first time in this country.


Dispatches 2011 (outlining projects at the National Sculpture Factory from 2011) ""Wölflinge created a vunerable, visceral & physically charged sound-performance where Langan's body was tested to its limits, lying in a pool of manure while performing on a piano harp all the while labouring under its weight. Langan's discomforting and troubling rituals bring an intensity to the shared performance and a shared physical experience."
