Brokentalkers returns with a searing response to the current refugee crisis - a must-see production!
Brokentalkers’ This Beach is a blistering satire of white western privilege made in response to the global refugee crisis.
The beach is private. A European family owns it. They have owned it for generations. During a wedding celebration, a stranger arrives on their shore, and the family must decide how to deal with him.
Brokentalkers (The Blue Boy, Have I No Mouth) returns with a searing response to the current refugee crisis gripping Europe. This Beach shines a spotlight on the lengths some people will go to prevent others entering their world. Sharply written and keenly observed, This Beach incorporates Brokentalkers’ trademark style of telling stories of social importance in an innovative way.
“Timely and contemporary This Beach pushes at the boundaries of the Irish performance canon and ensures Brokentalkers remain one of the most challenging contemporary performance companies in Ireland” thereviewshub.com (click HERE to read full review)

Brokentalkers are an award-winning Dublin-based theatre company, with an international outlook. Since 2001, under the artistic directorship of Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan, Brokentalkers have built a reputation as one of Ireland’s most innovative and original theatre companies by making formally ambitious work that defies categorisation.
Brokentalkers devise, direct and produce original and accessible live performance. They seek to explore new forms that challenge traditional ideologies of text based theatre. The company’s working method is founded on a collaborative process that draws from the skills and experiences of a large and diverse group of contributors from different disciplines and backgrounds. Some are professional artists, performers, designers and writers and others are people who do not usually work in the theatre but who bring an authenticity to the work that is compelling.
Their work responds to the contemporary world of which they are part and use elements such as original writing, dance, classic texts, film, interviews, found materials and music to represent that world in performance.
The work of the company has been presented in a variety of spaces, ranging from theatres to public spaces, disused sites and the Internet.
To date, the company has presented work in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the USA.
