The Performance Corporation
The Performance Corporation is Ireland’s leading site-specific theater company. Our mission is to create daring theatrical adventures that energize, challenge, inspire and entertain audiences.
Founded in 2002 by Jo Mangan and Tom Swift, our work strives to stretch the boundaries of where, how and what theatre can be. The Performance Corporation relishes taking audiences on site-specific journeys to out-of-the-way places, and transforming the commonplace into a realm of dramatic possibilities.
In the last nine years we have created tailor-made plays and performances for a wide variety of locations in Ireland and around the world. We have staged work in the sand dunes of Ireland’s Atlantic coast, in the gothic surrounds of Edinburgh’s Old Medical School, in the docklands of Cork City and in the shadow of a tree in Lamukani village near Mombassa, Kenya. Recent collaborations with Solas Nua in Washington include the surprise synchronized smooch of KISS USA and the guerrilla Hurling match, GAA!
