Will you Climb Aboard the Ship of Fools?

Hallelujah! Draíocht’s Community Clown Choir has had the pleasure of working with Veronica Coburn, Theatre Artist in Residence, for the last 3 years.

Veronica Coburn’s 2013-2015 Residency was supported by The Arts Council’s Theatre Artist in Residence Scheme with additional support from Fingal County Council and the performance of ‘Ship of Fools’ marks the end of Draiocht’s 3 year Clown Choir Project.

We hope you'll come along!

“Welcome to the Ship of Fools. A ship that is neither here nor there. A ship that has left but has not yet arrived. A ship that exists in a moment in time. A moment when you stop being who you are. And you have yet to become who you might be. A ship that sails through the night because that’s when you dream.”

Ship of Fools, a red nose re-telling of Alessandro Baricco’s Novecento, performed by thirty five clowns was developed with Hallelujah! Draíocht’s Community Clown Choir and scripted by Veronica Coburn. A culmination of Coburn’s three year Residency in Draíocht, Ship of Fools is a full blown red nose piece of theatre featuring song and original score. Performed in an intimate setting, Ship of Fools promises to make you laugh, it will make your heart sing and it will most certainly make you consider a journey of your own.

Director Veronica Coburn, Original Score & Musical Arrangement by Debra Salem, Choir Director Louise Foxe, Design Kieran McNulty, Lighting Paul Doran, Production Eamon Fox.
