Pan Pan presents
Accompany Samuel Beckett’s curious figures into an uncertain future. Dressed in dark cloak and given headphones, you’ll be guided around Temple Bar on this rhythmic, immersive, group walk.
Listen as you are introduced to the deeply riveting yet broken narration of Voice, a man hopelessly trying to finish a story. The only character is Woburn, never heard but identified by his same old coat. And then there’s the tremendous presence of Music, rising in a wave of electronic strings.
Featuring the melodic voices of Irish actors Andrew Bennett and Daniel Reardon, Cascando is transformed into an absorbing outdoor experience in which you are part of the spectacle. Pan Pan Theatre brings visceral energy to Beckett’s 1963 radio play, which poetically pits words against music.
Please note audience members will be given a black cloak to wear for the duration of the performance, as well as headphones and an audio device.
As the show involves listening to a soundtrack through headphones, it may not be suitable for people with certain hearing impairments.
If you have any mobility or visual impairment issues, let us know in advance of booking so that we can discuss how to make the show accessible for you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01 8819 613 to arrange this.

“Lifted from the familiarity of ‘normal vision and sound,’ one’s imagination and reason collide until there is a fusion between both.” Irish Examiner
“It makes the ordinary feel special”. The Guardian
“Gradually the idea surfaces in Director Gavin’s Quinn’s compassionate production, designed with precision by Aedín, Cosgrove that to be seen is enough.” The Guardian
