I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One

we have entered the endtimes
it cannot be avoided.
everything we have ever known to be certain is a lie.
the collapse is imminent. 
pack up your worries and woes, 
and let us leave them behind.
along with all of your earthly possessions. 
you won’t need them where we’re going.
and we’ll be going together, 
wherever that might be. 
let’s face the collapse of it all
time, space, reality, culture, and history
as one.

I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One is an ensemble performance that takes the shape of a pseudo-spiritual new age fitness class attempting to induce a state of transcendental trance whereby the audience can leave their flesh vessel behind to travel towards a new dimension. An invitation to momentarily escape the existential abyss induced by 21st century living.

I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One was directed and presented as Eoin’s final work as part of his studies on BA(Hons) Contemporary Performance Practice. The work won the Avrom Greenbaum Player’s Award for the most promising student. Eoin’s friend recently told him that he “still thinks about it lots”.

Devised and Performed by Sofie Andersen, Rachel McLean, Oscar Turner, Louise Marie Lee, and Tara Matzollek. Directed by Eoin McKenzie

Premiered in June 2018 at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
