Inspired in part by Mihail Chemiakin’s Children are the victims of adult vices (a series of grotesque sculptures located in a park in Bolotnaya Square, Balchug, 800 metres south of the Moscow Kremlin) this unique work is the result of a collaboration between two of Ireland’s most dynamic compositional voices – Brian Irvine and Jennifer Walshe.

Performed by a specially formed ensemble that combines three of Europe’s most explosive free improvisers together with the acclaimed Scotland-based contemporary music group Red Note Ensemble; Thirteen Vices melts down the boundaries between disciplines and dominates the space that lies somewhere between theatre, contemporary classical, free improvisation, opera, conduction, poetry, thrash and trash!
