Loosysmokes Artists-in-Residence 2020

Loosysmokes is an award-winning Irish art Circus company that create synesthetic spectacles that aim to engulf and swallow an audience. The company is made up of a close-knit group of hardworking artists, craftspeople and performers creatively produced and directed by Elaine Mc Cague and Jonah McGreevy. Working with the shapes of waking dreams, the glimpses at the edges of eyesight, and the intensity of lightening struck they create visceral experiences that end deep in the gut of the viewer. Their works have received raving five star-reviews, toured to sold-out audiences, and been nominated for multiple awards.

As artists in residence at the Gate theatre in 2020/21 the company will undertake writing, designing, and devising new work, as well as a program of review of creative methods to allow their ambitions to become fully realized.
