About:

Mark Donne, Fiona O’Shaugnessey and Drew McConnell

In Limbic

Mark, Drew and Fiona are collaboratively developing a multi-screen film installation featuring elements of new musical composition & performance, in reply to the scientific term “Anthropocene” and an evidence based reaction to existence in the Anthropocene age. The project will work as a telluric, interplaying series of filmed vignettes with a standout/abstract performance as centrepiece.
The project will specifically look at and meditate upon two objective/researched/evidenced spheres of anthropocentric chaos: a female human mental health emergency and the impact of unnatural factors on whales, and the reactive capacities of both to external traumatic factors.
​The ultimate work will be researched, recorded and presented in 3 territories. ​
