Tinderbox Theatre Company presents Ignition


This May, Tinderbox Theatre Company will produce the innovative Ignition project at The Crescent.

All graduates from The Play Machine’s inaugural training school, are given a blank canvas.

They have 5 days to create a show with only 1 idea and 12 bodies in the space!   

Previous successful Ignition shows featured stellar theatre makers and performers in 'what would we do if we weren’t so afraid, Cuck' by Choreographer Eileen McClory and last year’s 'Insects!' with Play Machine Year 1

'What is apparent from the off is O’Reilly’s signature love of movement, minimalism and, of course, playfulness.' Conor O Neill, Culture Hub Magazine 

'Ignition is agile, it’s risky and it’s a way of rapidly prototyping new theatre and physical performance work. Tinderbox are being so fearless in jumping between genres to innovate their work.' Alan in Belfast

Tinderbox Theatre Company is funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council.
