We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a Circus Project Award from the Arts Council to develop The Collector into a full production.
We can't wait to begin work on this project that has been in development for a no. of years now.
Huge thanks to @artscouncilireland @garterlane @nenagharts @fanziniproductions @hanan_sheedy @spraoifestival & @circusfactorycork for their continued support.
Tis the season to be Training 😬🤘.
We have recently begun training an entirely new Circus Skill - Tight Wire Walking!
Thanks to a successful Residency proposal with the Circus Factory, and investment in Unicycle's premium Free-Standing Tight Wire Rig, we have been able to begin training in this discipline with professional mentor Tony Mahon of Acrophobia.
We have now also been lucky enough to be selected for Galway Circus' spectacular summer event Lifeline. LifeLine is Europe's largest highwire spectacle performed over the River Corrib and Claddagh Basin in Galway City. Staged on 7 highwires and featuring a cast of 150 people of all ages and backgrounds, audiences will witness a stunning display of strength and resilience over one of Ireland’s most iconic waterways.
With many thanks to @circusfactorycork & @galwaycircus, but, most of all, huge thanks to Mr. T-Bone Tony himself @acrophobiacircus for the patient persistence... x
I have to say I'm delighted to announce that I've has been selected for a one month Performing Arts Residency in the Centre Culture Irlandais (CCI) in Paris.
The residency will allow me to focus on scriptwriting and choreography for an upcoming production which will be built around the character of The Collector.
CCI's prestigious annual residency programme offers opportunities for artists of all disciplines to tap into the resources of Paris and the CCI, as well as being an important means of showcasing Ireland's dynamic contemporary culture on an international stage.
We were delighted to be asked to launch Limerick's St. Patrick's Festival for Rogu Arts and Limerick county Council this week. We'll be there all day and night on 19th March, with a huge, once off show planned for that night.
Many thanks to festival director Aidan Phelan, Limerick Council and to photographer Brian Arthur for the fantastic images.
Living on the Go is a celebration of the fantastical in the everyday & of the seemingly eccentric. This work-in-progress plays with the sense of safety that monotony provides and the disruption that one small change can make in a seemingly endless cycle.
"Dysfunctional furniture, ticking clocks, the muffled noise of the functional living. All the time in the world, waiting, just waiting for the long full stop..."
