LIFE IS A DREAM

Dates: 27 Mar - 19 Apr

Tickets: €25

How would you feel if you discovered that your life, your identity and the content of your memory were based on a trick of the mind, a powerful illusion, a dream? How would you feel if you learned that your future was being determined by political manipulation, paranoid superstition and the capricious swings of a volatile personality? Four centuries after it was written, Calderón’s play presents a world strikingly like our own – a world of spin and international conflict, where those in power live in fear of being overthrown. A playful, poetic and powerful thriller about life, love and liberty. Rough Magic presents a provocative contemporary production of one of the greatest plays of the European theatre.

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,…
