The Architecture and Playability of Theatre
with Mikel Murfi

in conjunction with The Man in Woman’s Shoes

Sunday, March 8 | 5 -6:30pm

Mikel Murfi has recently begun delivering his lecture/demonstration entitled The Architecture and Playability of Space to acclaim in Ireland and abroad. In this lecture he talks about his work and influences with particular reference to his recent works with writer/director Enda Walsh and designer Sabine Dargent. He also examines the nature of creativity and talks about his practice as a director - the techniques he uses to help actors create more freely, to prepare them for the rehearsal room. It’s a fluid wide ranging discussion followed by a question and answer session and maybe even some participation. It’s a dynamic, engaging, thought provoking session. Mikel has a lot to say and talks fast!

Mikel Murfi is an actor, writer, director based in Ireland. He trained in Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Paris and is a certified teacher of the Lecoq pedagogy. His work with Enda Walsh on The Walworth Farce, The New Electric Ballroom, Penelope, Misterman and most recently Ballyturk has been a particularly fruitful. The works all been presented by St Ann’s Warehouse, Brooklyn (with the exception of Ballyturkwhich it’s hoped will appear there in Spring 2016). Ballyturk features Murfi, Cillian Murphy and Stephen Rea and is directed by Enda Walsh.

The New York Times said of his direction of The Walworth Farce that you "feel that you’ve walked in on a Hibernian Three Stooges routine, directed by a drunken Dadaist”
