Deep Touring…

(2014 National Tour funded by the Arts Council Touring and Dissemination of Work scheme 2014).

SWEAT@ Sir Henry’s….Were you there?

It’s the summer of 1988 and Cork’s emigration generation are following the beat… in perfect time, for a Music Movement simmering from Ireland’s first House Club.

Sir Henry’s was the spiritual home of Cork’s first generation of House fanatics. Deep takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of an era. Through the rose-tinted, smiley-faced, glasses of hapless Vinyl Junkie, Larry Lehane.

Part fiction, part-documentary, Deep features interviews with the club’s main figures and footage of nights at the club.

Ciarán Bermingham is a real-life Taxi-Driver, Jobbing-Actor and Musical Theatre fanatic. Ciarán has been known to pick up a fare from punters who’ve just seen him naked in a Production of The Full Monty. Others who’ve seen Ciarán as ‘Mord’ in Game of Thrones assume he’s ‘made’ and is driving to get in character for a remake of Taxi Driver. But Ciarán turns up the Broadway Musicals from the Car Stereo and with his infectious Baritone lilts, serenades his way through the pick-ups and drop-offs. Taking its cue from Ciarán’s real-life situation Hail! the Musical brings the audience on a Musical taxi-journey through the city.

Collaborating with Raymond Scannell, Hail! embraces the challenges of making a Musical for a Taxi.

The showing at the Galway International Arts Festival  was presented on July 16th, 2014. It was directed by Nik Partridge (Director-In-Residence, Tobacco Factory Bristol, BBC Performing Arts Fellow 2014) and is funded by an Arts Council Project Award 2014.

Hail! was also presented to audiences in Dublin and Cork in June 2014 with huge thanks to the Everyman Theatre, Cork and Dublin Fringe Festival.


Mimic

Mimic by Raymond Scannell

Written and performed by Raymond Scannell

Directed and designed by Tom Creed

Julian Neary, a professional Mimic and comedian who found fame early but whose fortunes have plummeted, returns home to Ireland expecting to find the community he rebelled against as a child. But rather than the mystic, Island of Saints, scholars, solace & healing, he finds instead a barren landscape of abandoned houses and ghostly shopping centres. Using extreme storytelling and powerfully emotive live music, Mimic is a blackly humorous near-futuristic fable on National Identity.


 

First performed at the Cork Midsummer Festival 2007, Mimic played the Galway Arts Festival ‘08 (One of Europes most important cultural events – BBC) the Kilkenny Arts Festival ’08 (An international festival that is becoming a viable alternative to Edinburgh  The Guardian) and Dublin Fringe Festival ’08, where it picked up an award for ‘Best Male Performance’.

Mimic went on to perform internationally at PS122, New York as part of the COIL Festival 2010, Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris 2010 and the Irish Arts Center, New York 2011. As well as the Bristol Old Vic Proms in 2014.

Performed and underscored on a piano, this one-man tour-de-force is a unique and entertaining vision of what happens to a nation that forgets its heritage.

  A fascinating attempt to achieve the impossible.
