Conversations After Sex

Dates: 06 Oct - 06 Oct

Show Time: 4:30pm

Work in Progress

Strangers meet through dating apps, websites or random hook ups at the supermarket. They couple in cars, hotel rooms and anonymous apartments. They f*ck furiously, fulfilling perceived physical desires and needs in one another – the need to forget themselves, feel, control or submit.

Their shared physical intimacy becomes a catalyst for shocking communication. Their belief in the shield of anonymity allows them to reveal parts of themselves hidden from friends, family or lovers. The conversations, held in the shadow of guilt, regret or shame, are darkly comedic and troubling, revealing a devastatingly honest portrait of a society.

Tom Creed directs the latest piece from multiaward- winning writer Mark O’Halloran (Viva, Garage, Adam and Paul) and the team behind Trade (Winner, Best New Play, Irish Theatre Awards 2011).

In the event of a sold out performance please see dublintheatrefestival.ie for more tickets.

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,…
