A travelling theatre performance which comes to where you live.
Corcadorca has been at the heart of civic celebrations in Cork since The Trial of Jesus on Patrick's Hill for the Millennium. Now they are responding to the Covid-19 crisis by collaborating with Cork Midsummer Festival in bringing a travelling theatre performance to communities across the city.
Contact, a highly visual performance has been brought to different city locations, for the local residents to experience a live performance that artistically reflected our new reality and the universally shared challenge around human contact. Audiences viewed it from their own gardens, socially distanced from others from 11th until 21st June 2020. Now you can view it online.
