MOSH, Audio Described Performance at the Project Arts Centre, 17th September 2023
This is the thrill of fighting, without the fear. This is a dance, a gig, a theatrical shove into the heart of the pit. This is a community connected through music and risk.
With live music, real interviews, humour, heart and a whole lot of headbanging, five performers dive into the deeper meaning behind a misunderstood subculture. Is this violence or dancing? What are the rules? What do bacteria and moshers have in common? And why would anyone do it?
Funded by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Waterford City & County Council, with support from ArtLinks, field:arts, Firkin Crane, and Garter Lane Arts Centre. Originally developed at the 8th PanPan International Mentorship and VISUAL Carlow.

The Glass Menagerie, Audio Described Performance at The Everyman, 24th August 2023
The Everyman is proud to present Tennessee Williams’ classic play, The Glass Menagerie.
An unremarkable apartment, 1930’s St. Louis, Missouri.
Amanda, a force to be reckoned with despite how she might appear, clings to the romance of her past whilst ardently aspiring to a better future for her children. Her daughter Laura, left fragile by a childhood illness, shies away from the outside world, and dedicates herself to her glass menagerie; whilst her son Tom, a poet and the play’s narrator, longs to escape his warehouse job and the suffocation of his existence.
Hope delivered in the arrival of a “gentleman caller” is inevitably shattered, but memories are not so easily demolished.
The Glass Menagerie propelled Tennessee Williams to fame. Award-winning theatre director Emma Jordan returns to The Everyman stage with this new production following the success of The New Electric Ballroom by Enda Walsh (Gate Theatre) earlier this year.
Girl on an Altar, Audio Described Performance at the Abbey Theatre, 19th August 2023
This dramatically powerful portrait of a marriage ripped apart will explode onto the Abbey stage this summer. Marina Carr weaves an intimate portrait of a once unbreakable couple who can’t bring themselves to forgive the past, but can’t live without each other.
A royal couple bound together by love, desire, hate and resentment find themselves and their families caught in the consequences of a terrible act of sacrifice, and the inability of the heart to forgive.
Girl on an Altar was first co-produced in London with the Kiln Theatre in summer 2022, directed by Annabelle Comyn. July 2023 marks the Irish premiere of the critically acclaimed production of this new play by Marina Carr, which is inspired by ‘Agamemnon’ from Aeschylus’ Oresteia.
