Masterclass – Brokentalkers


Posted 3 weeks ago in Theatre Features

Brokentalkers, long recognised as one of Ireland’s foremost theater companies, has brought Adrienne Truscott’s ‘Masterclass’ back to Dublin from an award-winning international tour.

The Project Arts Centre will stage a performance that “parodies the great male artist to within an inch of his life in order to uncover some difficult truths…”.

A thought provoking and humourous consideration of gender and power, the creators had this to say about the production, which has garnered rave reviews from Australia to Istanbul.

Gary Keegan: “The inspiration for Masterclass came from a question Adrienne had about the power ‘Great Male Writers’ had over how and by whom their scripts were staged. Adrienne, Feidlim and I had been looking for a project to work on together for several years and this theme of power chimed with the kind of thing Feidlim and I like to make shows about. We were also drawn to how certain of these ‘great’ artists talk about themselves and their work.”

Adrienne Truscott: “Masterclass isn’t just about these “great” artists, it’s also about us. We say things to each other in this play that are so true and so excruciating and funny. Not just about us, about our industry and culture, but also SO about us.”

Masterclass by Brokentalkers is at The Project Arts Centre from June 4th – 29th
