REQUIEM FOR THE TRUTH :: Dublin Fringe Festival :: St. Werbergh's Church
Friday, September 22nd, 2017
7:30 PM
Outrageously energetic 10-piece street-funk band Stomptown Brass invite you to join them as they take on an audacious task; to host a funeral for the truth. Witness the colourful exuberance of the Haitian Voodoo-inspired New Orleans jazz funeral as it smashes up against the mournful, solemn ceremony of Roman Catholicism. This is a show both life-affirming and other-worldly. An extravagant, chaotic street party with a dark twist. So get in (second-)line, and follow the blistering trumpets and blaring trombones from the streets of Dublin to the house of God as we ask: is Truth really dead? Was it ever alive?

“Blending the sounds of funk and blues with a raucous cacophony of powerful driving rhythms.”
