Brokentalkers are an award winning Dublin based theatre company, with an international outlook. Under the artistic directorship of Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan, since 2001 Brokentalkers have built a reputation as one of Ireland's most innovative and original theatre companies by making formally ambitious work that defies categorisation.
Brokentalkers devise, direct and produce original and accessible live performance. They seek to explore new forms that challenge traditional ideologies of text based theatre. The company's working method is founded on a collaborative process that draws from 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 bring an authenticity to the work that is compelling.
All their shows respond to the contemporary world of which they are part and use elements such as original writing, dance, classic texts, film, interviews, found materials and music to represent that world in performance.
The work of the company has been presented in a variety of spaces, ranging from theatres to public spaces, disused sites and the Internet.
Brokentalkers are supported by The Arts Council, Dublin City Council et Culture Ireland. Brokentalkers are part of Project Catalyst, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
