Kind Words Spoken

"A larger-than-life solo show where Capdevielle confronts a massive and empty stage for a medley of disco and baroque music, brightening the corners with a collection of hits by Madonna and Francis Cabrel."Les Inrockuptibles

Jonathan Capdevielle as part of Dublin Theatre Festival presents



Dates: 01 Oct - 04 Oct

Show Time: 7.30pm & 9.30pm

Tickets: €20-25

Jonathan Capdevielle spent his teenage years learning to imitate pop icons and singing the greatest hits from 1980s pop culture – especially those by Madonna.

Adishatz / Adieu is his self-portrait; a collection of songs that wanders between real life and fantasy. As his performance moves between music and conversation, he conjures up memories of his childhood and a past that continues to inform his shifting identity.

On a journey to capture as closely as possible the personas of others, Capdevielle strives to discover the most truthful version of himself. Sung a cappella and featuring a male choir, Adishatz / Adieu is a powerful study of the vulnerability of adolescence.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
