Prometheus Now is a multimedia performance piece that speaks to the eternal cycle of devastation and regeneration, darkness and light. Inspired by the mythical figure of Prometheus, the artists have created a filmic weave of classical piano, sound art, text and visual image. Gaitkrash, in collaboration with solo pianist Gabriela Mayer, and supported by the MTU Arts Office, invokes the figure of Prometheus to ignite the spark of hope.

Prometheus means pre-sight; he is the trickster, forever exploring a way forward, the one who illuminates the world! Friend to humankind, prophet and rebel, Prometheus risked the wrath of Zeus to steal fire and to gift it to humans. Inspired by this fearless and inventive mythical figure, the artistic team has chosen a warehouse on the Marina in Cork as the canvas on which to project their ideas. The warehouse in its forlorn state represents the devastation caused by the wrath of Zeus who intended to rid the Earth of humankind. Re-enlivened by the spark of invention, the warehouse is gradually transformed by a visually and sonically intriguing work.
