THE WORLD IN PICTURES

Dates: 20 Apr - 20 Apr

Tickets: €22

Somewhere, amid the frequent downfalls of fire-proofed theatrical snow, the ragbag of dodgy costumes, the swirling music and the improvised scenery, there’s a bold attempt to tell the story of mankind.

Complete with cavemen in bad wigs and over-enthused performances, The World in Pictures finds its shambolic, mock grandiose and comical way from way back then to right here and now. It also touches on memory, mortality, the past, the future and the intricate detail of our own lives.

With their deserved reputation for work that is provocative, exciting and frequently disconcerting, Forced Entertainment’s newest theatre piece follows the line of 2004’s acclaimed Bloody Mess, alternating between chaotic spectacle and fragile intimacy.

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,…
