Kafka is Afraid of Mice
Friday Sharing, 26th of August, 6pm, all welcome.
What do I carry on my shoulders? What spectres cling to me?’ The disorienting and absurd yet fundamentally human world of Franz Kafka is at the heart this week’s exploration in the TDC by GAITKRASH and collaborators. We have been mining at the intersection between theatre, sound art and visual art and invite you to share in our findings thus far.
Dowtcha are presenting the beginnings of their new work ‘The Preachain’, based on a poem by the late Mick Lynch.
Mick, who sadly passed away last December, a talented musician, artist and writer was also a founding member of Dowtcha Puppets since 2002. This year’s Cork Puppetry Festival is dedicated to his memory.

Also showcasing new work, Your Man’s Puppets will perform The Musical Menagerie, a magical blend of music and puppetry.
The show combines the musical imagination of Boris Hunka, (multi-instrumentalist, improviser and composer) with the skills of renowned puppeteer and actor Thomas Baker. The result is a magical blend of entertainment, education and escapism.
This week Dowtcha Puppets Youth Ensemble are working on their debut show ‘The Underwater Shoes’ and are looking forward to sharing their progress with us this Friday August 5th @ 6pm.
