Set on a real bumper track, Dodgems sweeps you into a displaced and exotic world where a bawdy band of new arrivals and indigenous misfits play out the dodging and crashing of ordinary lives to a live, earthy and haunting soundscape.

A fevered new country hosts a band of outsiders at the edges of its borders. Loneliness, fear, displacement. The gorgeous coupling of opposites. But is the outsider inside us all being pushed to the edge as well?

Roll up. It's showtime in Ireland. Time to be seduced by the light and dark of the fairground. Capturing the lights, smells and sounds of the funfair, get prepared to step right up for the ride of your lives...

All performances are Sign Language interpreted.
