What is it?
EdgeFest, a three week festival of theatre from two of Northern Ireland’s top theatre companies, will take place in Belfast from Tuesday 6th February to Saturday 3rd March.
The MAC will be partnering with Tinderbox and Prime Cut to host EdgeFest, which aims to present theatre that will challenge, entertain, and dare to take us to the very edge of who we are. Audiences will be able to enjoy three shows over three weeks in the MAC’s Upstairs Theatre. The Man Who Fell to Pieces by Tinderbox (6th to 11th February); and Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful (15th February to 3rd March) and East Belfast Boy (16th February to 3rd March) by Prime Cut.
The Man Who Fell to Pieces is a powerful story that celebrates what it means to be human. It promises to be a beautifully poignant and theatrically explosive feast for the mind and body; a signature performance for Tinderbox Theatre Company’s new adventure of exploring the potential of the imagination through physical storytelling and play.
Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful is the new play by John Patrick Higgins. Directed by Rhian Jeffrey and designed by Ciaran Bagnall, it is described as a funny confessional about a man who is considering throwing in the towel.
East Belfast Boy, by the award-winning team who created Red and the internationally acclaimed Scorch by Stacey Gregg, tells the story of Davy. The things he sees, his streets, his mates, his girl and… The boys.
