The living room strewn on the front garden for all to see. Five Ways to Drown looks into the interior of people’s lives and exposes the sadness, the absurdity and the banality through vignettes of dance and installation. In this public display of the private, the choreography of everyday life becomes extraordinary. Continuing junk ensemble’s explorations of how spaces can be reinvented, Five Ways to Drown creates a different perspective on live performance.

junk ensemble was established by Megan and Jessica Kennedy in 2004, with a commitment to creating works of brave and innovative dance theatre. Winners of the Culture Ireland Touring Award in 2008 and an Excellence and Innovation Award in 2007, and listed as an Irish Times Highlight for 2008, junk ensemble’s work has toured nationally and internationally.
