The Irish premiere of a major work by Marina Carr.

Hecuba is a passionate re-imagining of the aftermath of the Trojan War and the events surrounding its iconic characters; a series of intense, dangerous personal encounters and impossible choices, described by those who witnessed and experienced them.

We are encouraged to think the unthinkable – what if it was me being asked to do these things, or suffering their consequences? In the time of the devastation of Syria and the global refugee crisis, when climate change is every day bringing catastrophe closer to the shores of the West, it’s a disturbingly appropriate question.

This drama of a complex and powerful woman is also a depiction of the effect of war and its emotional cost to the individual.

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,…
