In Between Silence, where we really exist is a series of sound pieces featuring storytelling from some of Ireland’s finest writers, including Anne Enright and Roddy Doyle, underscored by music specially commissioned from groundbreaking composer, producer and visual artist Stano.

Featuring stories that range across time and space, from the Australian outback to Sri Lanka, and across a vast array of emotions, In Between Silence is a journey in sound, blending cutting-edge soundscapes with deeply personal tales.

This inaugural event, taking place at the Lighthouse, features a live discussion from writers who were involved in the project, but more sound pieces will be staged in venues across Dublin throughout the festival. 

A different selection of stories will play on the hour at a range of venues throughout Dublin City.
