The work presented in the festival connects live performance and the intersection of class, race, equality, displacement, climate and world ecologies. The festival presents artists of exceptional calibre – from seminal international artists making groundbreaking work across the globe, to Ireland’s most exciting next-generation of performance makers with work never before presented in Ireland.
