“virtually flawless” Pop Matters (US)

Irish duo Lakker present a remarkable audiovisual performance, inspired by the Dutch people’s relationship with water. Delving deep into the archives of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, Lakker sample the soundtracks of documentaries on life at sea, shipping, canal journeys and water sports to build propulsive electronic dance music, repurposing the nostalgic imagery of long-gone times to utterly contemporary effect. For Struggle & Emerge’s live show, Lakker manipulate this archive footage in real time, syncing it to the music it inspired, and revealing the hidden detail in visual and musical elements alike.

“[a] masterful live performance” Resident Advisor (UK)

Pre-show conversation with Dara Smith & Ian McDonnell, Lakker open to all ticket holders at 18:00.

The documentary Struggle & Emerge, which follows Lakker’s journey to understand the Dutch people’s relationship with water and translate it into sound, is being screened every day between 12.00 and 22.00 in the Tramway Foyer.
