What we do…
We make experiences. We create adventures. We are The Performance Corporation!
Jo Mangan and Tom Swift set up the company in 2002 with a mission to create daring theatrical adventures in surprising places. We’ve gone on to become one of Ireland’s most exciting and groundbreaking arts companies – with a portfolio that includes the BIG HOUSE festival, award-winning theatrical work and cultural animations in fantastic locations – from museums to stately homes.
Between then and now, we have jumped off the towering sand dunes on Ireland’s Atlantic coast, tip-toed through the gothic halls of Edinburgh’s Old Medical School, electrified a crumbling sports arena in Washington DC, driven at top-speed through Dublin’s dangerous docklands, and danced a dance in the shadow of a tree in a Kenyan fishing village. It’s been a wonderful experience… and we’re only getting warmed up!
