‘Soup’ is a moving shrine to a lost parent and an absurd meditation on the process of grief.
It exists inside a mirror world built out of vegetables, polystyrene heads, the kitchen table and inhabited by a sinuous doppelgänger. Performed with a mutant physicality, it is simultaneously brutish, sensual, ridiculous, and vulnerable.
Soup see-saws between hilarious and harrowing as it reaches for a shared state of catharsis with the audience. ‘Soup’ was created by performer and choreographer Deirdre Griffin in collaboration with sound designer Craig Cox.
