Built To Contain from Kabosh

Kabosh (North of Ireland)

Built To Contain from Kabosh  


'Built to Contain' is a radio play developed and performed by 10 recently released male prisoners in Belfast.  

Scripted by Laurence McKeown and directed by Paula McFetridge, it is the culmination of a 3 week participatory project. 
It was recorded by Cormac O'Kane from Red Box Recording in the ruins of Crumlin Road Jail. 

This radio play is presented in advance of a live discussion panel between Paula McFetridge (Artistic Director, Kabosh) and Paula Van Hagen (Director, Chats Palace, London) as they discuss the methodology used by Kabosh to help communities deal with the legacy of conflict and how this has toured nationally and internationally.

We hope to welcome Kabosh to Prague in October with their production Green and Blue. You can watch the trailer here: www.youtube.com/watch;

Reviews, awards, more information

Founded in 1994, Belfast-based Kabosh is committed to challenging the idea of what theatre is, who it is for and where it takes place. Inspired by the sites, spaces and people of the north of Ireland, Kabosh commissions powerful political work to help communities deal with the legacy of conflict.

The work is toured locally, nationally and internationally into a range of theatres and non-theatre spaces. Performances are accompanied by facilitated discussion and related workshops to support local artists and activists. Kabosh believes in the politics of theatre to transform people's lives.
