Enemy of the Stars

Dates:

Wednesday 29 April to Saturday 2 May at 7.30pm; Saturday matinee 2 May at 2pm

Playwright:

After Wyndham Lewis / Adaptated and Directed by Nicholas Johnson and Colm Summers

Details:

Originally published in the Vorticist literary magazine BLAST in London in 1914 and not performed for 100 years, Wyndham Lewis's play Enemy of the Stars is an avant-garde text composed of images, prose, and very little conventional dialogue. This contemporary adaptation follows an ensemble as they attempt to discover the essence of this work - its thought, its politics, its soul.

Design: Colm McNally
Lighting: Katherine Graham
Stage Management: Tilly Taylor
Dramaturgy: Lenny Buckley
Ensemble: Honi Cooke, Colm Gleeson, Dara Hoban, James Ireland, Hugo Lau, Caitlin Scott


This production was originally supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub for the 2014 symposium BLAST at 100.
The current production is supported by the Provost's Fund for the Visual and Performing Arts, the Trinity Association and Trust, the Thomas Damman Jr. Trust, and the School of Drama, Film and Music.
We gratefully acknowledge the permission of the Estate of Wyndham Lewis.

Following its Dublin run, this production will appear in a festival in Fez, Morocco, where it will represent Trinity College Dublin in an international festival of experimental theatre.

Jockey

Dates:

Wednesday 20 to Friday 22 May at 8pm; Post-show talk Thursday 21 May

Company:

WillFredd Theatre/Emma O'Kane (Ireland)

Details:

Horse Racing is in the blood. Leading dancer Emma O’Kane has just discovered it.
Her grandfather, Phillip de Burgh O’Brien, was a bloodstock agent and a racing journalist from the 1940's - 70's. He died before she was born but his words live on. From Phillip's writings to Emma's own experience of recently learning to ride a racehorse, Jockey explores the physical relationship between the dancer, the jockey and the Irish thoroughbred horse.
Featuring original racing footage and commentary, Jockey is the culmination of a year-long collaboration between WillFredd Theatre, Emma O’Kane and the Irish Racing Community.

A constantly inventive, affectionate and beautifully performed production ... it's outstanding in its field. - The Irish Times on FARM

Duration: 60 minutes (no interval)

Douglas

Dates:

Saturday 23 May at 6pm, followed by post-show talk

Company:

Robbie Synge (UK)

Details:

Curious, surprising and often funny, Douglas stems from actions imagined by Robbie Synge while working alone and performing various daily physical tasks at home.
A lone figure amongst a number of simple objects, Douglas is absorbed in activity. Through a series of physical experiments, he seeks connections between himself and the surrounding inanimate objects.
Does his body move his environment, or is he moved by it? His playful interactions test the push-pull flow of kinetic energy. An intriguing conversation that goes nowhere and everywhere.

Will leave you totally moved and enchanted. - Julia Carruthers, Festival Director

Duration: 50 minutes (no interval)
