by James Moran
Omalia is a show about the internet and the collective unconscious. Cyberpsychologist and comedian James Moran has written some scripts to be performed by himself and actor Hannah Mamalis (The Egg is a Lonely Hunter, Dreamgun). The scripts are based around text drawn from comment sections all over the internet, each one brimming over with the archetypal, neurotic and contemplative characters of the online unconscious. They’re funny but not without their tragedy.
James Moran has an MSc in Cyberpsychology (IADT). In 2018 he co-directed Oneday with Dick Walsh (Dublin Fringe Festival 2018). Previously he wrote and performed The Assassination of Pope Urban II (2017). He has also performed at Vodafone Comedy Festival, Electric Picnic and Body & Soul.
Son of a Preacher Man
by Matthew Malone
In this work-in-progress, Matthew Malone explores and explodes the dramatic tension between his father’s origins in contrast to his own. What happens when the young Irish male of today looks nothing like his past? Directed by Fionnuala Gygax, Son of a Preacher Man is a play of questions – of selfhood, social politics, and ultimately Irishness.
Matthew is an Irish actor and theatre-maker. He is a recent graduate of The Lir and previously studied Drama and English at Trinity. Matthew recently worked with Bombinate Theatre in the Dublin Fringe and he’s currently developing a new show Faultline with ANU for next year.
