Company Philip Connaughton
19-22 Feb, Project Arts Centre
A beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed it successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia.

Lords of Strut
19-22 Feb (Town Hall Theatre Galway, Draiocht, Roscommon Arts Centre, Solstice Arts Centre Navan)
All their lives, Sean and Seamus have wanted to be famous. To get there they need to make the perfect dance routine; they need your help. In this dance fantasy adventure the brothers rock out banging moves, run into trouble, cause mayhem and find out if fame is really what they’re looking for. Fusing dizzying acrobatics and riotous comedy, Lords of Strut are rip-roaringly funny, fantastically bizarre, they are …absolute legends!
Moscow City Ballet
10-15 Feb (Bord Gáis Energy Theatre)
Moscow City Ballet comes to the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre for a celebration of Tchaikovsky's beloved ballets. The week of performances will include Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.
Discounts available when booking for more than one performance.
