This collection of video clips is taken from the first full recordings of Robbie Blake’s ‘Running the ending’ filmed in and around the UCD Humanities Institute on 12 May 2019. It is performed in full and in part by Robbie Blake, Jessie Keenan, and Zosia Kuczyńska.
Robbie Blake, 'Running the ending' score
This is Robbie Blake’s original graphic score (pp. 1-5) for their live performance piece ‘Running the ending’, which is featured in this exhibition as a short film and which was inspired by Blake’s engagement with the Brian Friel Papers at the National Library of Ireland.
Running the ending
This is a film, directed by Robbie Blake, about exhaustion, self-expression and joyousness. Blake’s score uses a graphic notation to represent three states: run, reset/shake-out, dance.
