PERFORMATIK2013 - For Mountain, Orla Barry set to work with 57 words, an actor, a performer and a musician. Luck, chance and a bit of wizardry play equal parts in this work. The language objects on the stage not only make up the set, but also provide the foundations for the script. By playing with poetry, songs, monologues, speeches and suchlike, unexpected links between words, meaning and performance emerge.
