It Folds by Junk Ensemble and Brokentalkers at Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Brokentalkers and Junk Ensemble

It Folds, a joint production between Junk Ensemble and Brokentalkers, is currently performing at the Summerhall, as part of Edinburgh Fringe. It Folds has been receiving rave reviews from Edinburgh critics.

‘David Lynch would be proud’ ‘Macabre beauty . . . shot through with haunting music’
The Times

‘It Folds is a harrowing, heartbreaking and sometimes darkly humorous investigation of death and grief . . . The piece is a perfect mesh of the two company’s styles and mores.’
Total Theatre

We’re also looking forward to welcoming Brokentalkers back to Project when they perform This Beach as part of the Tiger Dublin Fringe festival.  This Beach, is a response to the current refugee crisis gripping Europe. Get your tickets here.
