Makeshift Ensemble and a cast of six activist / performers from Ireland, Belgium, South Africa, Peru and the Democratic Republic of Congo invite you to question the role of idealism and our responsibility for action in a (faux)-globalised world.
Utopia Ltd. is an off-site collaborative theatre performance, inspired by the biography of Roger Casement.
It explores flawed and flawless heroes, a world mapped by international trade and the optimistic impossibility that tonight we will change the world. But is there anything we can all agree on? And who are we responsible for? And aren’t ideals that people would die for too dangerous?
This is an outdoor performance, please dress appropriately.
Co-produced by Postmodernsquare with the support of the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Sample Studios and Cork Midsummer Festival. Funded by TAIKE and the European Commission.
