‘Soup’ is a kinetic shrine to my mother and an absurd meditation on the process of grief.

It exists inside a 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.

Nominated for Dublin Fringe Best Performer and Radical Spirit of the Fringe Awards 2019
