THROUGH A FILM DARKLY

Dates: 01 Apr - 19 Apr

Tickets: €15

‘The theatre is a lie; the thing to do is to bring it

as close as possible to the greatest truthfulness.

The theatre is a painting; the thing to do is to make

this painting useful by making it accessible to the

greatest number of people so that the picture

which it presents will serve to link men together…’

Sebastian Mercier Janet Wilson is a young English woman living in a rapidly changing post-independence Ghana with Fenyinka, her Ghanaian husband. Like a duck to water, Janet is settling down nicely as an immigrant in this West African country until the day she crosses paths with John Owusu, a Ghanaian who has a few bones to pick with white people since an experience he had as a student in Britain.

Through a Film Darkly asks if it is ever possible for an immigrant, white or black, not to be made feel like an ‘inside outsider’ in a foreign land.

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.
