Captain’s Log, Stardate (whatever). A lone astronaut hurtles through the cosmos on a one-way mission to the edge of us. Traversing time and space, isolation and uncertainty, her quest to find hope will bring her to the brink of the abyss.
i n f i n i t y is an exploration of fact, (science) fiction and the spaces in between. A theatrical experience that attempts to bridge the divide by looking at the stories we tell ourselves when we feel most alone.
Winner of the First Forthnight Award and the Dublin Fringe Festival Best Design Award and nominated for the Dublin Fringe Best Performer Award.
Created in association with Corn Exchange Theatre Company and Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre. Supported by UCD through the UCD Dramsoc Company-in-Residence Award. Developed at Scene + Heard 2017. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.
