University of Liverpool’s Institute of Irish Studies and The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs, in association with Unreal Cities are pleased to present Beckett: Unbound 2024.

Tracing Samuel Beckett’s closings and undoings of space across disciplines, locations and environments, our 2022 festival explored the writer’s ‘politics of confinement’ amidst the highly-charged aftermath of the global pandemic. In Beckett: Unbound 2024, we explore Beckett’s wild fascination with communication and technology’s traversal of time and distance, across a programme of theatre, music, film, dance, photography, and discussion.
The second edition of the festival includes several world premières of commissioned new works, including renowned Irish choreographer Liz Roche’s Sentient, composer Kevin Volans’ Quad and performer Simon Roth’s Mouth.
Our theatre programme features three settings of some of Beckett’s major works – Not I, All That Fall and Krapp’s Last Tape.

Event Date: Thursday 30th May 2024 - Sunday 2nd June 2024
