From the writer of Alice In Funderland and the songwriter with Life After Modelling, I’m Your Man is a love story told through music, charting a symbolic journey from death to new life.

From having the idea of yourself turned on its head – through heartbreak, circumstance or fate; then returning to life refreshed, having overcome heartache, inner demons, obstacles and trials; having encountered all manner of curiosities and desolations and become all manner of identities and mis-identities; in order to meet the true love of your life – a love that you always felt but never believed possible; a love that you always hoped for but never dared acknowledge, for fear of what it might ask of you – but a love that always keeps you moving forwards when you think you’re falling backwards.

Dublin Theatre Festival is committed to supporting Irish artists in creating ambitious and high-quality new work. Our In Development programme offers theatre-makers a platform to stage their works-in-progress for Irish and international audiences and theatre presenters. Audiences will have an opportunity to see pieces at a critical phase in their development, while artists, writers and directors will use the space to try out new ideas.

Past In Development presentations have gone on to enjoy successful productions as part of Dublin Theatre Festival and have toured at home and abroad to acclaim.

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,…
