THE FAR SIDE

By Upstate Theatre Project

description

The global and the local collide through the prism of favourite TV shows, cinema and song, celebrating a peoples' history of themselves...

THE FAR SIDE

Under the guidance of artist Feidlim Cannon (Brokentalkers), THE FAR SIDE sees seven Droghedeans develop a contemporary, living history.

The video and live performance blends contemporary art-making with local, personal and popular heritage in a unique and unsentimental cocktail for the here and now.

The performance is a real, sometimes surreal, re-presentation of stories, memories and reminiscences.

Videography: Kilian Waters

Sound: Jack Cawley

Created and Performed by:

Feidlim Cannon, Roisin Bird, Vivienne Byrne, James Coogan, John Crilly, Gerry Cullen, Elma Finn, Ged Kelly

THE ASK

Upstate Theatre Project and the creators and performers of THE FAR SIDE have been selected for this year's Dublin Fringe Festival with a big screen performance at the Light House Cinema, and we are now looking for your help to make it happen.

This is a massive opportunity for everyone involved in the project and we are really looking forward to blurring the lines between documentary, cinema and live theatre performance in such a fantastic venue. We think that THE FAR SIDE will be of interest to anyone with an interest in social, living history – stories told through technologically engaged post dramatic performance.

The content of THE FAR SIDE has universal appeal – the performers, ranging in age from 19 to 70, explore the human condition, delving into their past, contemplating their future. While the performers explain their perspective on life, the questions asked will hold a resonance with most audiences. Life. Death. Regrets. Ambitions. Loneliness. Big life questions framed within the context of an Irish town – a sense of 'local' that most can relate to. The performers speak of the 'other', the 'far side'. While they speak of a community divided by the Boyne, the sentiment can easily translate to any community. After all, every town has its far side.

THE FAR SIDE has been a two year collaborative process, and we think the outcome is a really beautiful piece of work.

Any help will be gladly received, whether that's sharing this Fund it campaign on your Facebook or Twitter pages, pledging a few quid, sending us some happy thoughts or, later on, buying some tickets for the event itself.

Upstate Theatre Project is a registered charity, so any money raised over our target will go toward supporting Upstate's next participatory theatre programme.

THE FAR SIDE │ Dublin Fringe Festival 2013

It's been wonderfully mad these past three weeks since the successful completion of our Fund It for THE FAR SIDE, so thank you, again, to everyone who supported us, either by funding the project or by sharing the campaign through your social networks. Since then, the programme for Dublin Fringe Festival has launched - check us out on page 88 - the box office in Film Base has opened (1850 FRINGE) and we have been busy working on Upstate's new website and some teaser trailers for the project. (Oh, and just yesterday, Feidlim and Brokentalkers won the Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form over in Edinburgh for Have I No Mouth! Yep. Awesome.) Anyway, for those of you who funded THE FAR SIDE, details of your reward will be making their way into your inboxes later this evening. And, in the meantime, here is the first of our trailers, enjoy! http://vimeo.com/72827756
