The Circus Animals’ Desertion

A major new dance theatre performance The Circus Animals’ Desertion is a poetic response to the imagining of nations, inspired by the Automatic Script experiments of Georgie and William Butler Yeats  in which they called upon the spirit world to assist with their creativity.
It's Not Over by Theatreclub at Dublin Theatre Festival
It’s Not Over
Samuel Beckett Theatre
‘It will take place in a theatre, but it is not a play. It is a campaign. You will watch a re-enactment of the past 50 years of violent political conflict. We are working with former IRA Volunteers. It’s four and a half hours long. There’ll be a bar and a live band, maybe bingo.’
