Thank you for checking out our Fund it campaign - we hope you can help to make TARDIGRADE happen!

Dublin Fringe Festival will present the premiere of Philip Connaughton’s TARDIGRADE in September. 

TARDIGRADE is Philip’s first full-length piece. It’s a collaboration between Philip, Composer Michael Gallen, Videographer/Designer Luca Truffarelli, with Costume by Emily Ní Bhroin, and will be produced by Eleanor Creighton.

A cast of four astounding dancers join six talented singers in a world full of hauntingly beautiful live music, lithe and raucous dance and video projection that will transport you to another place.

It’s inspired by Bosch’s painting Garden of Earthly Delights and influenced by Philip’s more recent choreographic work in theatre and opera. He has been working on this project since his time as Associate Artist at Dance Ireland and now, finally has the opportunity to present the finished version to the public in full, technicolour glory.

Using Bosch’s masterpiece as an inspirational springboard, Philip and his collaborators are creating an incredibly fresh and inventive piece of dance. It's a kaleidoscopic feast.

A 15 minute work-in-progress version was performed recently at Dublin Dance Festival 2014 and received excellent feedback and response from the public. The Irish Times described it as a “sensory outburst… dismissive of theatrical conventions, and clear in its intention and delivery, despite being a work in progress.”

To bring the full work to life as part of Dublin Fringe Festival we are looking for some additional funding to cover technical costs, studio hire and stage management fees. There's a huge team - and a massive amount of energy - behind this project. We hope you'll come and let your imagination run riot with us!
