Carnival – a Speigeltent

Founded in 1994, Kabosh is committed to challenging the notion of what theatre is and where it takes place. The company aims to reinvent the ways in which stories are told, commissioning new writing and devising work for site-specific environments and installation.

Those You Pass On The Street touring January 2016

January 2016 sees a Ireland wide tour of *Those You Pass On The Street*

Elizabeth, the widow of an RUC officer, walks into a Sinn Fein office to seek help with anti-social behaviour in her area, there she meets Frank a community officer…

From this friendship we witness the unfolding and exploration of the attitudes and ingrained notions that still divide society in Northern Ireland today.

Those You Pass On The Street, written by Laurence McKeown and produced by Kabosh, is a powerful piece that explores the complexities of dealing with the legacy of conflict, especially when that conflict is localised and personal. It contrasts party political positioning with individual needs. It challenges the view that any mechanism for dealing with the past is simply about ‘whose side gets what’.

Made me think about how far we have come, and how much hope there is for the future – Audience Member

In January 2016 we will be touring the production to a number of communities throughout Ireland.

If you or a group you know of would be interested in the tour coming to them or in attending one of the larger venue dates then please get in touch by dropping us an EMAIL

We’ll be releasing the full schedule within the next few weeks so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us now.

Great times at Castlewellan with Mabel

Loved every second .so moving, beautiful singing, beautiful setting… ten out of ten – Audience Member

Saturday November 14th saw the final two performances in this run of Mabel. It played to sold out shows and fantastic reviews over the past few weeks.

In what audiences have called ‘amazing’, ‘wonderful’ and ‘very funny’ we were delighted to take our audiences on a journey through Castlewellan grounds and castle with the enigmatic Mabel becoming, in the words of Culture NI ‘both our guide and our conscience’.

If you didn’t have the chance to catch this fantastic Kabosh and Down Arts Centre co-production then don’t despair as we aim to revive the production in the Summer of 2016. We’ll provide you with more details in the weeks to come!
