Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.


Moonfish Theatre


  • Description

    Inspired by our home in the West of Ireland, Moonfish is a collaborative ensemble that blends our rich culture of language, story-telling, music and dance with theatrical languages such as puppetry, interactive technology and movement to create exhilarating experiences that challenge and excite our audiences. 

    In 2013 Moonfish were awarded the Stewart Parker Trust / BBC Northern Ireland Irish Language Theatre award for our acclaimed production, Tromluí Phinocchio/ Pinocchio - A Nightmare, which premièred at the Dublin Fringe Festival before touring Ireland. Moonfish adapted Joseph O'Connor's novel Star of the Sea in 2014. This premiered at the Galway International Arts Festival 2014 to huge acclaim, and has subsequently toured nationally twice and internationally to the US in 2017. 

    In 2016 Moonfish developed Pop-Up Worlds as part of our tenure as Theatre Artists in Residence at The Riverbank Arts Centre. Pop-Up Worlds is an immersive theatre piece that combines pop-up paper technology and sensor technology. In 2017 it toured nationally and internationally to the egg theatre, Bath, as part of their Schools Without Walls project. In 2021, the Moonfish Theatre Ensemble devised an audio drama for RTÉ Jnr called 'Into the World Within'.
