Knock

Natalya O'Flaherty

Knock was written following a real late-night-knock situation I’d had. I was terrified at the sounds, but I was even more scared of the scenarios I’d imagined long after the knocker was gone. Knock is written in a way that’s supposed to make the listener feel uneasy. It is intended to leave spaces and pose unanswered questions - the anxiety of unknowing.

Natalya O’Flaherty

Now established as one of the most exciting names on the Irish spoken word scene, Natalya O’Flaherty has emerged from the dankest of dive bars to perform at some of the country's most prestigious cultural centres and has undertaken many major commissions. Key appearances include RTÉ's Culture Night 2019, the St. Patrick’s Festival, The Late Late Show, the Mansion House, Electric Picnic, Music Town and All Together Now. So far in 2020 she has undertaken several online projects and recorded a special set for Body & Soul’s virtual festival weekend.
