GAITKRASH Theatre Company @ TDC this Friday

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.

Your Mans Puppets Cork Puppetry Festival 2015 (7)

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.
