The Fregoli Heart Project
After its huge success as part of Cúirt 2019 Fregoli bring The Fregoli Heart Project back! Led by Fregoli Artistic Director and DTP PhD student Maria Tivnan, this event takes place at the O’Donoghue Theatre and is available for booking NOW from EventBrite.
In an era of borders, marginalization, and mass attempts to inspire hate and difference, Fregoli wishes to return to what is quintessential to life: love. In October 11th 2018 Fregoli put out an open call and received an abundance of beautiful submissions from people of varying ages, backgrounds and abilities all-encircling Love. The creative team worked as an ensemble taking these submissions and moulding them into a theatre production bursting with love and light.
“Fregoli delivered an hour-long show that was by turns touching, funny, poignant, joyful, heartfelt and true (……) It was a show as warm, life-affirming and soul-gladdening as a good, scrunchy hug.” -Charlie McBride
