Clare Muireann Murphy

A mathematician finds a gift from a god
Blacksmiths beat out the music of the spheres
And why are there turtles everywhere?

Where does myth meet science? Is it only in the middle of the night when we half wake and half sleep? In this timeless place of wonder and insight, time stretches and a fissure opens that builds a dream bridge between many worlds…

Performance storyteller Clare Murphy dances into this liminal space; merging myth, deities, science and a hefty amount of turtle, in a playful exploration of the beginnings of the universe.

masterly storytelling – all delivered at a pace which meant there was never a dull moment.”    Culture Whisper 

Clare Muireann Murphy’s beautiful lilting Irish voice was in stark contrast to the darkly humorous stories she told us, and she her first-rate comic physicality only served to enhance her storytelling.”    Everything Theatre
