Outlandish Theatre Platform
Fear is everywhere.
Fear is nothing.
Fear is necessary.
Fear is nonsense.
Fear is outside my back door.
What is FEAR to you?
FEAR is a radical performance arresting your senses. Our fears will become yours. You will forget your own and take on new ones. You will find pleasure in the pain.
FEAR is not your average theatrical production. FEAR is a collective performance of
individual expressions of FEAR through new texts and movements, exploring the performers’ fictive, real and fantastical fears.
The performers in this ensemble pursue their FEARs with brutal honesty, subtle humour and wild imagination. Co-created with a creative team of inter-media artists, a sublime aural and visual theatrical experience sharpens the senses, plays havoc with logic and investigates the animal response of Fight, Flight, Freeze and Fawn.
FEAR is co-created by an ensemble of fourteen performers and creatives as part of Open Theatre Practice, a weekly experimental performance making workshop, open to the public, which runs as part of Outlandish Theatre Platform’s arts, health and community residency at the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital.
FEAR is kindly supported by the Arts Council, DCC and the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital.

About the company…
Outlandish Theatre Platform, founded in 2010 by performance making artists Bernie O’Reily and Maud Hendricks, creates new experimental inter-media theatre projects with people in places.
Open Theatre Practice is a free performance-making workshop as part of Outlandish Theatre Platform’s community-arts-health residency at the Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital in Dublin 8. Since 2017 participants from diverse communities in Dublin 8, the hospital community and inter-disciplinary artists have co-created new work in response to a theme (systems, nothing, patterns, love, bodies). Performances have been presented at Dublin International Film Festival, Mother Tongues Festival, Five Lamps Arts Festival and the Rita Kelly Theatre. FEAR is Season VI of Open Theatre Practice.
