30 Cecil Street

In 2009 Dan Canham (Kneehigh, DV8, Punchdrunk, Fabulous Beast) made a film in a rotting, dilapidated theatre in Limerick, Ireland. Using that film as source material, this brand new piece of dance-theatre sees a lone figure stream through
fragments of memories in a series of poignant and evocative dances. With an original soundtrack made up of interviews and found sounds, this poetic and moving
piece looks at the life of a once-mighty building what is left when a theatre closes its doors to the public.

Made with support from Arts Council England, Escalator Performing Arts, Bristol Ferment and Battersea Arts Centre.
