No Matter Where You Go There You Are, is an interactive interdisciplinary theatrical performance. A conversation between two women, one Australian, Jennifer Williams, now based in Ireland, and one Irish, Cathie Clinton, now based in Australia. The show will be performed at Melbourne Fringe Festival for two weeks and the Wexford Fringe Festival for three dates in November.

The show in Melbourne will be performed by our Irish actor, with video of our Australian actor's performance in Ireland projected into the space, and interacted with by the Irish actor, and then vice versa for Wexford. Written autobiographically by the two performers, the show will draw on their experiences of the expectations and promise of travel, their subsequent lives in their new countries, and where they hope or expect it to lead to from here. Through audience response and interaction, the show will also draw on the audience’s own experiences and beliefs about travel.
In an increasingly internationally mobile community, No Matter Where You Go, There You Are is an examination of the reasons we travel, and the different experiences that we have when we get where we are going.

It looks at Ireland and Australia, and the connection between the two countries over many centuries. It looks at forced migration and the bust of the Celtic Tiger, as well as voluntary migration and the booming Australian economy. It is about a search for a home in the world and meaning in our lives, no matter where that search takes us.
The honesty of its creators, the humour and drama entailed, and the brave venture into the unknown that this performance represents in every way, will wake you up, shake you up, make you laugh and cry, and challenge you to really look at your own life. This is about building your own future, not just waiting for it to happen, this is about inspiring others, not just searching for inspiration.

Watch this show’s development and metamorphosis on its journey between these women, and between these continents; then we take it to Alabama. This production has an international benefit, creating links between emerging artists and artistic communities in both Ireland and Australia, and eventually America. We hope the production will generate interest amongst theatre professionals in many countries, and be the foundation of further international artistic endeavours for the artists involved.
