Leaving by Wayne Jordan

Dates: 15 Mar - 15 Mar

Show Time: 6.00pm & 9.00pm

Tickets: €16

In 2017, acclaimed theatre director Wayne Jordan left Dublin and directing behind and moved to Prague.

Dublin was a city that was trying to buck him off like a bull at a rodeo, a beast gone wild, shoving and kicking and biting at him until finally he let go of her tail and then something began. Something that will return with him. Home.

He became a student at a puppet school and started to make his own performances with his body and objects. And later with new friends.

Leaving is a diary of that time in Prague, transformed into performance

A reflection, a travel journal, an exhibition of scars and possibilities…

A ceremony.

A way of being together.

**’Leaving’ is an inclusive performance that may involve participatory elements. The audience may be invited to move around, perform tasks, engage with performers and objects. The aim is to be gentle together.

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,…
