Neverneverland

Peterpan's adventures before he met Wendy. 

This show for all ages is set on a tall ship in Neverland, the place where no one grows up. With local children being incorporated into the show, they help catch a mermaid and get captured by Captain hook. Peterpan and Captain Hook battle it out with daring aerial acrobatics on rigged ropes, while Tinkerbell sneakily releases the children who then triumphantly trap Captain Hook in their net. In celebration, Tinkerbell and Tigerlily take to the sky in a duo silks performance on grand floating silks, and are joined by Peterpan and Tinkerbell jumping, flipping, and dancing up and down the ships's horizontal yards for the finale while Hook struggles in the hanging net below.

Accompanied by only the pitch drop experiment, Marie delves deeper into her seclusion as she waits year after year for the fall of her dark companion. The pitch preoccupies her every waking hour, possessing her mind and calling into question the unsettling subjectivity of time through moments of psychosis where the very core of her reality is brought into question.

Set in a dilapidated Victorian building in the heart of Dublin’s Creative Quarter, this new aerial theatre performance explores a young woman’s psyche. Her story is taken to the air by one of Ireland’s leading aerial silks artists, Ria Murphy.
