IMMA welcomes you to a festive family friendly performance by IMMA resident artist Isadora Epstein. The One Trick Pony Show! is a starry, starry Yuletide Rodeo! The audience is welcomed to sidle up and saddle up to hear the tall tales of the Giant Cactus (Isadora Epstein), about the Tiny Bandit (Conor Lumsden) and his trusty Mustang (Daniel McAuley). Dancing Buffalo (Aoibhinn O’Dea) will shuffle to the harmonica from Sheriff Moony (Davy Kehoe).
The 30-minute show features new outlaw ballads and cowboy puppets by Conor Lumsden and Foley/pony clopping sounds by Ruan van Vliet. Western wear by Aimie Egan.
Isadora Epstein writes and makes performances from her research of art history and mythology. Her work brings together a multidisciplinary ensemble of artists working in visual art, experimental music, and dance. The activities of her practice include three distinct processes: archival research, script writing, and collaborative rehearsals. Her performances are joyful acts of remembrance which offer up the ridiculous fantasy of immortality through the making of temporary fictional worlds.
Living and working in Dublin, Epstein has had performances at Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, RHA, Sirius Art centre, Royal Irish Academy, Ormston House and KuVa Exhibition Lab, Helsinki, and at TULCA. Epstein co-created and performed two award winning shows for the Dublin Fringe Festival Flemish Proverbs, 2015 and Very Rich Hours, 2016. In 2019 she was awarded the Art Councils inaugural Constance de Markievicz Award. Epstein is currently developing a new audio project for the National Gallery, and she is a recent recipient of the 2021 Fire Station Artists Studio Digital Media Award.
