Junk Ensemble was founded in Dublin in 2004 by twin sisters Megan and Jessica Kennedy. The company is committed to engaging diverse audiences through the creation and presentation of brave, imaginative and accessible work that sheds light on important human issues relevant to society today.
Current Project Arts Centre Associate Artists & previous Dance Artists-in-Residence at Firkin Crane and The Tate, Junk Ensemble is a multi-award winning company that has built a reputation as one of Ireland’s leading voices in dance. Junk Ensemble frequently collaborates with artists from other disciplines to produce a rich mix of visual and performance styles that challenge the traditional audience/performer relationship. This approach has led to productions being created in non-traditional or found spaces as well as more conventional theatre spaces. The company often work directly with communities in the creation and performance of their work. Their work has toured to New York, Europe, and throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
Previous productions I have worked with as company line producer and marketing include: Dances Like a Bomb (Dublin Dance Festival 2022), The Misunderstanding of Myrrha (Dublin Dance Festival Winter Edition 2021/Mermaid Arts Centre 2020), The Veiled Ones (Baboró International Arts Festival for Children 2021/Dublin Fringe Festival 2021), A Different Wolf (Cork Opera House/Cork Midsummer Festival 2019), The Bystander (Dublin Theatre Festival 2018), Dolores (Dublin Dance Festival 2018), and Soldier Still (National Tour 2018/Belfast Festival/Dublin Fringe 2017).
Junk Ensemble is funded by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council
