Laughter and Tears. Fear and Freedom. Suffering and Joy.
Combining story, spoken word, and original sound & music, Spinning Coins is a new contemporary dance piece, an ode to the celebration of life within the shit of life’s daily struggles.
It's winning or losing...let the battles begin!
Very excited to be working with Emma Deakin, Yuyu Rau, Hubert Essakow and Dominic Warwick on a new dance piece for Resolution! 2015 at The Place in January 2015.

reviews from The Place
"Kudos to Martyn Duffy’s
Great to be able to help Shane and the team with Sound Design for this
Superheroines I Have Known & Loved brings together leading artists from different disciplines to create a performance which features comedy, spoken word, illustration and live music from a string quartet.
A performer weaves poems and songs into comic, autobiographical reflections on his troubled relationship with women, and why it’s both important - and tricky - to reflect upon gender equality from a man’s perspective.

Sound design by me.
Very excited by this. It was my first fully composed-through sound design for live theatre.
I was able to use original music with various electronic effects and sounds that suggested medical settings and also others that hinted at 'other-worldly' settings while incorporating an overall sound theme based on the 4 syllable "ex-pec-tat-ions' motif. Click here to hear more
