Looking for Bang Bang

Saturday, 19 May
The Complex

Presented by Shadowbox, as part of Stories from the City

Looking for Bang Bang was originally devised from the stories and writings of older women from Dublin and surrounding areas. The piece was designed to be ever-evolving, incorporating new stories as well as improvisational sequences responding to audience reflections, enabling current stories to be interweaved with historical oral histories.

The play is generated from a collection of oral histories from people living in Dublin. Its potential to incorporate parallel contemporary stories means it is, at its heart, Stories from the City, depicting snapshots from different times of Dublin's recent history, presented in an engaging and imaginative format.

Shadowbox was formed in 1998, with a commitment to creating theatre inspired by and created from real lived experience.
