THE HEIGHTS

Tickets: €17

I’m coming back, love,

Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream,

My only master.

Kate Bush, Wuthering Heights

The love story of the century told by the children left behind. Wuthering Heights filtered through a kaleidoscope of 1980s excess and remixed in the decade of decadence. A visceral and visual piece of extreme storytelling featuring live video, big hair, rock ballads, and dancing.

A story everybody thinks they know reimagined for our time.

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.
