Holy Show Productions has created a live audio-visual essay for stage based on Ian Maleney's Minor Monuments. The show weaves live reading with voice recordings, music, the ambient sound of the landscape from Ian’s homeplace, and original film footage shot by Jamie Goldrick.
Set around a small family farm on the edge of a bog, a few miles from the river Shannon, Minor Monuments unfolds from the landscape of the Irish midlands. Taking in the physical and philosophical power of sound and music, it details the effects of Alzheimer’s disease on family life. Ian Maleney questions the nature of home, memory, and loss in this universal story of familial belonging and love.
The show is based on the widely acclaimed book of the same name published by the unstoppable hit-makers, Tramp Press.
