A trio of covert theatre experiences.

Keys, wallet, phone. Head out into the day. Pop your headphones in and let an artist occupy your mind.  

We have commissioned a trio of compelling artistic voices to create audio encounters exploring intimacy and connection in a reawakened world. You pick the time, the artists will let you know the place and the plan. These tiny revolutions of connection are made to be experienced privately, in public. 

Evocative and entertaining, these covert theatre experiences will create indelible moments of shared connection between artist and audience.  

Get carried away with the following artists: 

Hannah Mamalis is a writer, actress and stand-up comedian based in Dublin. Hannah plays with form and finds new ways to amalgamate these mediums. She writes and performs for screen and stage and regularly collaborates with Dreamgun and MOB Theatre. 

Oisín McKenna is a writer and artist, working in theatre, video, comedy and fiction. He makes work about love, money, health and history. He’s interested in the ways that political, economic and social conditions shape how we act, think, and feel at particular places and times. 

Maïa Nunes is a queer Black-mixed performance artist of Trinidadian-Irish descent. Their performance practice explores ambiguity as the site of transformative potential, ritual as healing for the afro-diaspora, and song as liberation practice. Maïa is co-founder of Origins Eile, a grassroots organisation, centring the safety and experiences of QTIBPOC in Ireland.
