ROOM SERVICE, a live interactive film, is set in the conference room of a hotel where the audience watch four performers on huge TV monitors set side by side. Each performer is in a separate hotel room, unable to see and hear the audience or each other. It’s late at night, and none of them are sleeping. Instead, they kill time, sharing moments of hope, fear and boredom. Their only contact to the outside world is a phone line that puts them directly in contact with the audience. As the night progresses they call their voyeurs with increasingly absurd and desperate demands in a plea to remain with them and help them make it through the night.
Gob Squad members are currently mentoring Irish artists Brokentalkers on a new performance project, with the support of British Council Ireland.

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,…Read More
