BrokenCrow Theatre Company have dived into two short stories, Ernestine and Kit and The Wintersongs by award winning author Kevin Barry, to create Dark Kingdom, a theatrical experience that exposes the uncomfortably familiar and the gloriously strange.
Barry’s characters have been described as “flamboyant and malevolent, speaking in a vernacular like no other.” In Dark Kingdom, BrokenCrow Theatre Company strive to put live flesh on the bones of these characters and to create for them a bleakly beautiful world to inhabit, a deliciously vicious version of the Ireland we are all familiar with.
BrokenCrow will be performing this work at The Granary as part of Cork Midsummer Festival and wish to thank both Midsummer and MAKE, a residency in Annaghmakerrig, whose support has made this project possible.
This week’s development sharing will take place on SATURDAY the 9th of April @ 6pm….
The Old Fruitmarket- an off-kilter, dark and comedic family drama that explores memory and consequence.
This is Gavin’s first self-penned play and his first time collaborating with Corcadorca.
We are coming to the end of the second week of development for No Kissin’ Ensemble and their new piece SLSD. Here’s some of what the team at No Kissin’ have to say about the piece..
“We call it SLSD, topped off by the LSD taken outside the DS, Deep South. By the new high-rising OTT sign. But SLSD would be the destination for this evening, and many evenings to come.”
SLSD is being created and developed through the use of house music, dance – in the forms of Contemporary and House, and the interrogation of new text combined with movement. The selection of scenes presented are a showcase of some of the most exciting content and concepts that the company have explored this week.
