Brokentalkers was founded by artists Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan to create new, innovative and accessible live performance.

We make work in variety of spaces, ranging from theatres to public spaces, galleries and on the world wide web.

Through our work we seek to explore new forms of performance that challenge traditional ideologies of text based theatre.

We are fiercely committed to a collaborative process in our approach to theatre making and draw from the skills, experiences and personal histories of the collective to inform the development of the work.

We collaborate with people from diverse disciplines and backgrounds, some are professional practitioners, others are people who have no experience in the theatre but who bring an authenticity. Brokentalkers engage with broad and diverse communities in compelling and provocative ways.

Our work responds to the contemporary world of which it is a part and uses film, dance, pop culture, found material, original writing and classic texts to represent that world in performance.

Our work transcends cultural and geographical boundries to tell universal stories of contemporary life.
