Carnival – a Speigeltent

Founded in 1994, Kabosh is committed to challenging the notion of what theatre is and where it takes place. The company aims to reinvent the ways in which stories are told, commissioning new writing and devising work for site-specific environments and installation.

Summer 2017 tour of Green & Blue

Green & Blue

We have a busy summer 2017 season of touring coming up for our critically acclaimed Green & Blue.

Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict. Based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Síochána officers, this new production fuses theatre and film to look at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a line in the ground.

Lives in Translation Rehearsed Readings

Based on a series of interviews with female Somalian refugees, support workers and community organisations, Kabosh's newest production is a poignant new drama exploring how recent migrants navigate the necessary support systems through translation. How disempowering and frustrating this system can be. How dehumanising the multi-layered hierarchy of language knowledge is. How time is controlled by those it least affects.

The newest script from acclaimed playwright Rosemary Jenkinson celebrates the human survival instinct whilst not shying away from the horrors of war. It asks difficult questions about our social justice systems. It challenges individuals who have made assumptions without knowing the facts. It gives voice to our new citizens and empowers them whilst bearing witness to their stories.

Join Kabosh theatre in a rehearsed reading of their newest production, and have an opportunity to not only hear the new script before anyone else but also to have your say on how you think the play should develop.

 

Join us on Tuesday 8th August 7pm at the East Belfast Network Centre for this unique chance to see behind the scenes in the creation of a new performance and to inform that process.
