Brokentalkers are an internationally renowned theatre company, based in Dublin, Ireland.
Founded in 2001 by Feidlim Cannon, Damien Fenty, Gary Keegan and Faye Munns. Brokentalkers is now led by co-artistic directors Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan.
We have performed in over 20 countries and have been described as “one of Ireland’s most fearless and path-breaking theatre companies” by making formally ambitious work that defies categorization.
We devise original, accessible live performance and explore new forms that challenge traditional ideologies of text-based theatre.
Our working method is founded on a collaborative process that draws on the skills and experiences of a large and diverse group of contributors from different disciplines and backgrounds. Some are professional artists, performers, designers and writers and others are people who do not usually work in the theatre but who brings an authenticity to the work that is compelling.
We make work that responds to the contemporary world, using elements such as original writing, dance, classic texts, film, interviews, found materials and music to represent that world in performance.
We also work within the participatory arts sector, collaborating with communities to produce works of artistic excellence as well as providing quality arts experiences for participants.
Brokentalkers are Project Artists, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
Brokentalkers are Associate Artist LOKAL Performing Arts, Reykjavik.
Brokentalkers are curators at Bealtaine Festival which is a national festival celebrating the arts and creativity as we age. It takes place each May and is run by Age & Opportunity, the national organisation which promotes active and engaged living as we get older.
