Ireland-based theatre makers break a technological barrier delivering live online streaming of an original play. By injecting innovation and technology, we want to revolutionise how art is consumed and question the traditionally limited access to life-changing performances.
The staging of "Good Love" by Karolina Szemerda inspired by August Strindberg's various works will take place in The New Theatre in Dublin on 21-25 May and in living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens worldwide via live online streaming on 24th May.
Constructing a social media image of a relationship seems easy, but maintaining a deep and meaningful relationship in real life seems a challenge. Do we become controlling partners? Sex with and even marriage to robots becomes socially acceptable...

We believe that relationships can be supportive, caring and mutually life-enhancing.

There is a technical risk in live online streaming on 24th May, as this is rare in theatre worldwide and unheard in Ireland. That's why we want to do it!
Tech-checks have already been conducted. We're planning another technical check session in April and May.
We are asking you to support this innovation in arts to bring world-class performance to Irish homes here and abroad as well as any other homes where people want to get inspired and consciously build their relationships.
We do not have any state agency support or public funding relying on our own ability to change the world for better. Join us!
Funding: private, ticket sales, fundraising events (listed on our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/EnigmaTheatreDublin/events/?ref=page_internal).
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We trust that you value our innovative and brave approach to taking art from theatre to living rooms across Ireland and the world. We wish to make as many as possible contemplate their relationships and the direction they're advancing them.
