Philip Connaughton and Ashley Chen have been performing together for over 10 years.
Philip has a scar from where Ashley threw his wife’s stiletto at him.
Another time Philip nearly broke Ashley’s toe.
Now they present WHACK!!, an explosive work about two bodies colliding, shifting between comedy and tragedy.
WHACK!! is a tour de force – violent yet tender.
It invites you in with humour and grips you as you watch demanding, exhausting feats of dance.
Adults and children alike are enthralled by this quirky, dysfunctional relationship. Are they fighting? Is there a winner? Maybe they’re trying to communicate…

Project Artists Brokentalkers have had a busy year. You saw them here earlier this year with Have I No Mouth as part of a national tour, back in April they presented The Passion a re-imagining of the Passion in collaboration with community of Ballyfermot and Cherry Orchard, and now they are hitting the road again with their critically-acclaimed show This Beach.
