Collapsing Horse Theatre


  • Description

    Collapsing Horse is a Dublin-based theatre company formed in 2012. We have created 7 productions, touring Ireland, London, Edinburgh, Moscow and New York. We are currently artists in residence in Riverbank where we run community workshops and develop new work. We presented 2 new shows in 2016, The Aeneid (Dublin Fringe) and Conor (The Ark), growing our commitment to engage with children as well as adults. These two strands are often fused, and we regularly use adult themes in children’s shows, or wide-eyed fantasy to immerse our mature audiences. In July 2017 we presented The Water Orchard with co- producers Project Arts Centre.
