Irish Theatre Coming to the USA this Month
Irish Theatre will continue to make an impact in the USA over the next couple of months following a successful 4 week run by Fishamble: The New Play Company of CHAROLAIS by Noni Stapleton in 59E59 THEATERS, New York.
In the Irish Arts Center, New York running until October 1st is Beckett in the City: The Women Speak. Beckett in the City is a body of work that celebrates and reveals Beckett’s writings and allows audiences to experience the women who inhabit some of Beckett’s best-known short works. In this site-specific performance, director Sarah Jane Scaife places Beckett’s characters from the page into the urban landscape, using the aesthetic tools of the body, sound, site, movement, architecture, and projection to put flesh on the scars the playwright reveals within our society.
The White Light Festival kicks off from 18th October – 15th November including Gare St. Lazare’s production of The Beckett Trilogy to at Lincoln Center New York. Samuel Beckett’s towering novels - Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable.
Starting a tour of the US on 28th September at Redfern Arts Center, Keene, New Hampshire is the Moonfish Theatre production of "Star of the Sea" which will also tour to Connecticut, and Massachusetts. Told through Moonfish’s signature style of bi-lingual theatre, six performers use projection, physical movement, and live sound-effects to conjure up the worlds of the characters from the Famine ship of 1847.
