“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 Exchanges 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.
