Loose Canon Theatre Company


  • Description

    Loose Canon Theatre Company started in 1996. For its first few years it was known for critically-acclaimed productions of Elizabethan and Jacobean texts. From 2000 to 2004 the company was one of the few in Irish theatre to maintain a full-time ensemble. During this time the company’s actors developed a daily practice of physical and vocal training, and improvisation. Strong links were forged with Irish composers, musicians, designers, and academics, who often worked with the company both in training and performance. Loose Canon were also lucky enough to be mentored and guided by various international practitioners. Then the children came. Now everything is more fluid. We still work together but in different ways, at different times, and on different projects.
