Asylum Productions

OVERVIEW

  • Description

    Asylum Productions is a collaborative affiliation of theatre artists dedicated to the development and presentation of new work: through both new writing and the development of new forms of theatre. Our work always has a social dimension: exploring the human experience in contemporary society through diverse forms of story-telling. Since our foundation in 1998, we have presented a number of critically acclaimed productions of new and contemporary works, touring nationally and internationally.

    Our flexible structure allows us to develop innovative work that is artist-led, creating an eclectic body of work ranging from the re-investigation of an absurdist classic (Bald Prima Donna), to cutting edge contemporary Irish writing (Enda Walsh, Peter Gowen), to developing new forms of theatre presentation: merging puppetry, physical & object theatre (Cleaner, Red Lola).

    Our work is production-driven: Asylum does not have an administrative infrastructure. Instead, we work from project to project, in partnership with existing arts and community organisations, venues and festivals; sharing resources, reducing our administrative costs and focusing our financial resources on creating quality theatre.
