Night One: Red

Fri 19th May - Sat 20th May
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Gonzo Theatre returns as part of the “What if?” Performance Art Weekend with its brand new show, ‘Night One: Red’ which will open the festival on Friday, 19 May and also run on Saturday 20 May at 8pm.

RED is an experimental show by director Philip Doherty and the company, creating an exciting, new theatre experience all inspired by the colour red.

Almost completely dialogue-free, ‘Night One: Red’ will be an exhilarating performance spectacle that will look at the colour red, its myriad of meanings, and what it does to people. . Using documentary material and true stories from public interviews as a springboard for creation, RED explores many themes like desire, danger, lipstick, love, beauty, passion, power, and the story of a red chair.

Starring Natasha O Reilly, Nicole Beck, Shane Carroll and James Lawlor with music arranged by the uber-talented Peter Denton, “Night One: Red” will create a series of dreamlike vignettes in a visual feast that celebrates the theatre of life.
