EventThe Sleepwalkers

Location- Samuel Beckett Theatre

Description- The Sleepwalkers is an original theatre project co-produced by Dublin Youth Theatre and Pan Pan.

During an unknown natural catastrophe, seventeen members of DYT, who from now on will be known as the anonymous characters, find themselves trapped in an abandoned building. Every time they try to leave and go outside, they fall asleep and wake up back where they started, rehearsing the same scene from Arthur Miller’s The Crucible:

“Oh how hard it is when pretense falls! But it falls, it falls!

I am so alone in the world now.”

Terrified? You should be. Along the way they try to solve the world’s problems, just in case they ever wake up to find that the world still exists. Think classic horror movie plots, teenage angst, and the natural wisdom of the young, all given a voice that you can’t help listening to.

The performance will ask the question: what does it mean to be awake? Working collaboratively with members of DYT, a theatre performance will be created around the subjects/themes of technology, community and inequality, exploring a series of original texts and ideas generated by DYT members as well as found texts from The Tempest to The Crucible.

The Sleepwalkers is a leap into the void. Are we sleepwalking towards Armageddon? Should we really fear the world changing?

Cost- €15

Event#WimRise for Clean Seas

Location- Sandycove Beach

Description- It’s your sea. It provides you with half the oxygen you breathe. It’s your sea. It provides you with the water you use everyday. It’s your sea. It keeps you alive. But, your sea is often awash with sewage. Want to do something about it?

On Sunday 28 July, we’re holding a #WimRise dedicated to keeping our seas clean. #WimRise is a free event for adventurous souls who want to breathe (using the Wim Hof Method) with the rising sun and then go for a dip in the cold Irish sea.

But, this one is different.
We want to get as many of our politicians, councillors and representatives to attend as possible. So, they can see how important the sea is to us. So, you can tell them, in person, what you feel about sewage in our seas.

And that is where you come in
Find out who your represetatives are and request that they attend. Strongly encourage them to come along. They are, afterall, your representative.

Everyone is welcome to attend #WimRise.

Rise. Breathe. Swim.

Cost- Free

Time- 18.00-19.00
