The Company

OVERVIEW

  • Description

    Award-winning theatre ensemble The Company has toured both nationally and internationally to critical acclaim. With only a few productions and founded in 2008, The Company has established itself as a key part of the Irish theatre community, making work that is both intelligent and participatory as well as cheeky and fun.

    Known for a unique blend of precisely choreographed movement with fundamental questions about identity and modern society, The Company’s work has been awarded a major commission by the prestigious National Theatre of Ireland, The Abbey, and won the coveted “Best Production” award at the 2010 Absolut Dublin Fringe Festival and the “Spirit of the Fringe Award” at the 2009 Absolut Fringe Festival. Critics have praised their innovative performances throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, and their international touring includes invitations to Portugal, Romania and most recently the first edition of RADAR L.A. theatre festival.

    The Company is formed entirely by multi-disciplinary performers. It is multi-national, multicultural and influenced by multiple art forms. Its desire is to renew the meaning of theatricality, creating work that is relevant to a contemporary audience.

    The Company are part of Project Catalyst, an initiative of Project Arts Centre, Dublin.
