Enda Walsh’s savagely funny play - a sensation in Dublin, London and New York - gets a major revival.
Bedbound is the latest in a series of significant productions of Enda Walsh’s plays from Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival, which have toured widely internationally.
The Pulse is a hugely ambitious and monumental work of sixty acrobats and choir members. It’s raw, it’s real, it sings, it sweats, it pulsates.
Towering human structures move with precision through a pulsing web of noise and light. Seemingly impossible levels of cooperation and feats of shared humanity, repeat, stretch, blossom and decay. Witness an intricate, organic synchronicity of human movement and sound — all to the beat of your own pounding pulse.
