A conversation with a city.

LIMERICK  ::  27 November – 7 December 2014  ::  BOOK NOW


This is Beautiful Dreamers. Your view is important. We’re listening. We want to know.

From a special vantage point in the heart of Limerick we invite you to look, listen and converse with city and its people.  Take a journey through the ordinary lives of Limerick…

As nightfall descends across the streets, homes and workplaces of Limerick, a pulsing conversation begins.  Though they may never meet, strangers speak to each other across the night.  They speak of love and laughter, of joy and loss and hope.  Together they remember their past and dream of an imagined future.

What part will you play?  Where do you fit in?

Based on interviews with Limerick’s citizens, Beautiful Dreamers is an interactive performance that reflects the city’s answers in surprising ways and through a variety of forms, including an FM radio frequency that you can tune into whether at the show, at home or in your car.

This ambitious and multi-layered new work forLimerick City of Culture is a collaboration between two of Ireland’s most exciting and innovative companies: Anu Productions who produce experimental work incorporating theatre, visual art and dance andThe Performance Corporation who are masters of site-specific work.  Both companies have created multiple award-winning shows and events that takes theatre out of its traditional setting and into the streets, homes and buildings of wherever they work, creating transformative events that surprise, provoke and entertain.
