Night of the Living Clown at An Taibhdhearc for 3 nights

Triko Cirkus Teatar (Best Independent Theatre Company in Croatia in 2012) will perform Night of the Living Clown at An Taibhdhearc for 3 nights to mark the end of an Irish/Croatian Red Nose Clown Exchange.

This clown cabaret, written and directed by Lee DeLong, features 5 theatre clowns who have been trained in the Jacques LeCoq style and 3 traditional Irish musicians who accompany the action throughout. The show was devised in Ireland and Croatia and was performed on Hallowe’en Night in Zagreb. The action is entirely visual, funny and touching as the Clowns try to frighten each other but end up frightening themselves.  

Clown is the search for what it is to be human. All the performers have trained with Lee DeLong, who says ‘Losing the fear of being ridiculous is a great step for an actor to take and his work is enriched by that step forever afterwards. The clown has no past and no future so he exists only in THE MOMENT, which is a basic principle of all good acting skills’.  

Night of the Living Clown features award-winning Croatian actor Drazen Sivak and also includes Nikolina Majdek, Iva Peter-Dragan and Domagoj Soic, who performed in Múscailt Festival 2013 in the hit show Nightingale. NUI Galway performers and musicians include Fionnuala Gallagher, Bríd Ní Mhaoileáin and Jack Talty.

Place & Time: An Taibhdhearc, Galway, 8pm
