Dublin Theatre Festival Preview – Vardo


ANU are back to finish what they started with Vardo, the final piece of the puzzle that begun with 2010’s World’s End lane. There was a short version of this production in last year’s Dublin Theatre festival, a ‘work in progress’ presentation. The work seemed to focus on the changes in the Foley street area, and the variety of other cultures that have arrived in Dublin in the last number of years.

Theatre innovators ANU Productions are also welcomed back to the festival this year. Having stage the first three parts of their multi award-winning Monto Cycle in 2010 (World’s End Lane), 2011 (Laundry) and 2012 (The Boys of Foley Street), they conclude the series with Vardo, a courageous and interactive performance that delves into the underworld of human trafficking in Dublin’s north inner city.

According to Anu Productions facebook feed, one third of the tickets have gone already, with tickets only being on sale to Friends of the Festival, so expect these to be gone in seconds when the tickets go on general sale.

There’s also a conference called ‘NOW-THEN-NOW: Witnessing Future History’ which runs on Oct 7th & 8th. This is inspired by the work of ANU Productions, presented in partnership with Create.
