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’.

Our Class: Marking Holocaust Memorial Day 2016

Marking Holocaust Memorial Day, January 27th 2016, Kabosh Theatre presents three rehearsed readings of Our Class, Ryan Craig’s version of the award winning play by Tadeusz Slobodzianek.

Performed as part of the Holocaust Memorial Trust calendar of events taking place in Northern Ireland to mark the 2016 commemoration, the play follows the journey of a group of school classmates from the newly independent Poland through the uncertainty of the 1930s and Soviet and Nazi occupation and beyond. In doing so the performance poignantly explores the key theme of the 2016 Holocaust Memorial Day programme; Don’t Stand By.

The reading, directed by Mikolaj Wozniak, features a cast of ten Northern Irish actors including Christine Clark, Mark McIlghagga, Ciaran Hanna, Eamon Jones, Noel Griffin and Una Convery with more cast members to be announced.

Each performance will be followed by a post-show discussion chaired by cast member Ciaran Hanna and featuring director Mikolaj Wozniak and Polish writer and journalist Aleksandra Lojek amongst others.
