Philip Connaughton and Ashley Chen have been performing together for over 10 years.
Philip has a scar from where Ashley threw his wife’s stiletto at him.
Another time Philip nearly broke Ashley’s toe.
Now they present WHACK!!, an explosive work about two bodies colliding, shifting between comedy and tragedy.
WHACK!! is a tour de force – violent yet tender.
It invites you in with humour and grips you as you watch demanding, exhausting feats of dance.
Adults and children alike are enthralled by this quirky, dysfunctional relationship. Are they fighting? Is there a winner? Maybe they’re trying to communicate…

Inner City Helping Homeless collected over 7,500 shoeboxes during their Dublin Fill a Luas appeal last Christmas. We want this year to be even bigger and we need your help. Christmas is fast approaching, and while the festive season is a time of celebration for most of us, it can also be a tough time for many people, not least the homeless community.
