A work in progress
What happens when a performer presents newspaper articles to a live audience? We look at the ways this liveness changes the articles, and also the way the articles change the performer. It’s an examination of how people process information and how this in turn informs our contemporary aural/oral culture.
Walter Benjamin says information is something that loses its value once it has been understood – whereas story is something that bears repeating.
This experimental theatre, which is traditionally an endeavour at repetition, is used to unpack what ‘bears repeating’ from the news.
This project has been developed with help from The Arts Council, The Irish Theatre Institute, Pan Pan Theatre and Live Collision.

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,…Read More
