This event has finished.
Presented by Tallaght Community Arts and Alt Ents 'As If By Chance' is an immersive, performative walk through Tallaght's urban landscape, where the audience chance upon three couples from Tallaght and witness shared moments between them.
The production features an original soundtrack by composer Robert Coleman and individual songs written by local songwriters Pius Gojo, Amy Naessens and Nick Stanley. Our three couples, Gary McEnroe and Catherina O'Grady, Joan O'Sullivan and Pat O'Sullivan, and Michael and Patricia Toah inspired individual songs.
