“Theatre audiences have come to expect a high standard from Corn Exchange. In Freefall , the company delivers on that standard again.” Irish Times

When the ground disappears from beneath your feet, some feel the thrill – some the fear – of the fall.


A sudden shock, and a man’s life flashes before his eyes. He experiences an intense rush of extraordinary images and tangled memories, revelations and lost connections. People time and places swirl around him. As he valiantly attempts to stitch it all back together, will his luck hold out?  

A sharp, humorous and exhilarating look at the fragility of a human life, performed with the Corn Exchange’s trademark blend of beauty, poignancy and comedy.

Following their last original piece – and hit of the 2006 Festival– Everyday, the team behind Dublin By Lamplight explores the outrage and euphoria that accompany change.

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,…
