A piñata gently swaying on an empty stage. A matter-of-fact ghost. A ghoulish choir. A pantomime horse where the front and back can’t agree.
It Folds is a reverie. A dream-like story of death, grief, beauty and humanity. It’s a poignant and humorous portrait of the tragicomic events that shape our everyday lives.
Fusing the distinctive choreography of Junk Ensemble with the innovative theatricality of Brokentalkers, It Folds features a large cast of Irish and local Bristol performers brought together to present an assortment of characters who attempt to find connection through their shared humanity.
Brokentalkers and Junk Ensemble are two internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning theatre and dance companies based in Dublin.
WINNER: Best Performer at Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival 2015.
