There is a door. It has a handle and a lock. It can be easy or difficult to open. Depending, of course, on which side of the door you are on, who opens it and why. In this bold and delightfully riotous dance theatre performance, a group of people push open THE DOOR to reveal stories about home, hospitality and belonging – and what they mean as we age. A CoisCéim BROADREACH commission, THE DOOR has been developed over the last year with communities from across Dublin County and Dun Laoghaire. Led by Philippa Donnellan, it features live music by members of NCH Blow the Dust Orchestra and is performed by an irreverent gang with a passion for dancing and a desire to hold on to the keys. Céad míle fáilte! But is it that simple? Admission Free. Capacity is limited, please book in advance at or phone the box office on 01 417 0000. Limited tickets will be available on the door. Led by Philippa Donnellan. A CoisCéim BROADREACH project commissioned by Age & Opportunity / Bealtaine in association with the National Concert Hall and Fatima Groups United.
