The Kabin Studio and Irish National Opera presents
Kabin Crew: The Sound of the Northside
Live at The Everyman

Irish National Opera are teaming up with youth hip-hop collective, the Kabin Crew, to create a theatrical showcase of their music at The Everyman.

Based in Knocknaheeny in northside Cork City, the Kabin Crew is made up of around 30 young people in the local area, who meet regularly at the Kabin Studio, a not-for-profit vibrant music and creative hub, repurposed from a metal container, described by The Echo as a “hive of creativity”. They write and perform their own material, spanning a variety of genres.

For The Sound of the Northside, the Kabin Crew will work with INO to add the element of theatre to their performance. This hour-long celebration of the Kabin Crew’s music will see the group perform alongside the INO Orchestra, conducted by Medb Brereton Hurley, in specially tailored arrangements of the Crew’s music, arranged by Áine Delaney. One Two One (Maud Lee and Zoe Ní Riordáin) will direct the show, drawing on their experience of dramatising their own music for theatre.

“The Kabin has developed many youngsters with musical talent and the tutors there have created a safe, friendly environment that allows the youngsters to be open, to think, talk and to ultimately thrive.” – The Echo

This collaboration between the Kabin Studio and INO is facilitated and supported by The Everyman. The concert is a Young Ensemble Scheme project supported by the Arts Council.
