“Brokentalkers, one of the country’s most fearless and path breaking theatre companies” The Irish Times
Brokentalkers are an award winning Dublin based theatre company. Formed in 2001 by Feidlim Cannon, Damien Fenty, Gary Keegan and Faye Munns after graduating from De Montfort University, Leicester.
Under the artistic directorship of Feidlim and Gary, since 2003 Brokentalkers have built a reputation as one of Ireland's most innovative and original theatre companies by making formally ambitious work that defies categorisation. This work has been presented in a variety of spaces, ranging from theatres to public spaces, disused sites and the Internet. Brokentalkers are an Irish Company with an international outlook. Over the past number of years Brokentalkers have built a strong international reputation.
Brokentalkers devise, direct and produce original and accessible live performance. Our work seeks to explore new forms that challenge traditional ideologies of text based theatre.
Our working method is founded on a collaborative process that draws from the skills and experiences of a large and diverse group of contributors from different disciplines and backgrounds. Some are professional artists, performers, designers and writers and others are people who do not usually work in the theatre but who bring an authenticity to the work that is compelling. Our shows respond to the contemporary world of which they are part and use elements such as original writing, dance, classic texts, film, interviews, found materials and music to represent that world in performance.
Brokentalkers are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
Brokentalkers are represented by Quaternaire.
