Shadowbox Theatre Company presents their first production in five years: Left Behind in association with Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre on October 20th and 21st.

“A journey of the imagination entering a world where merging sounds, movements and images tell a story of frustration, loss and hope for the future. Begging us to look again, look with different eyes.”

This is an experiment that will take you on a journey. With the artists. And with yourself. Their cast of performers continue to build the piece in front of your eyes, inviting you to journey with them, reflecting your own meaning and creating your own story through our exploration of movement imagery and live performance.

What if you could look through a window to the past, present and future? What if a curtain was pulled back and there was no wizard, just a pile of yellow bricks…? What if you could reach into the sky and pluck down something that has been left behind.
Shadowbox, Ireland’s inclusive international touring theatre company, present their first production in 5 years. In a changed world, what does it mean to return to an altered landscape and create through a new lens?

Experience Shadowbox’s distinct and renowned performance style, explored through imagery, movement and visual theatre, living a life of being Left Behind.

Shadowbox has been at the forefront of both social engagement and experimenting with theatre form within Irish theatre for 25 years. Most recently we were pat of the Abbey Theatre Dear Ireland series with our piece ‘I’m NOT vulnerable’ Our last live production Somethings was chosen as part of the inaugural Abbey Theatre 5×5 programme. Previous work includes ‘Outside’ nominated for the Irish Times Theatre Awards and their work has been featured by RTE in the documentary series ‘Would you Believe’.

The rawness and openness of the performers reaches beyond the perhaps expected, and gives you the opportunity to see the unique work of Shadowbox at its most experimental.
