Crash Ensemble are Ireland’s leading new music ensemble; a group of world class musicians playing ground-breaking music. In 2022 they celebrate their 25th birthday with a series of events including this screening of [REACTIONS] .

At the onset of the global pandemic, Crash Ensemble commissioned Irish and international composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group.

Composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future. Each composer documented their creative process with text and imagery, offering a fly-on-the-wall view of their experience. The duos were filmed by Crash’s resident filmmaker, Laura Sheeran to create this programme of 17 short pieces.

Crash Ensemble is supported by the Arts Council, Dublin City Council, RTÉ Supporting the Arts and is resident ensemble at the National Concert Hall Dublin and Kilkenny Arts Festival.
