Tribe is a vaguely-defined social construct currently masquerading as a theatre company. Characteristics commonly observed among tribelings are: a fascination with the weird and the wonderful; a commitment to theatre that is physically engaged and visually engaging; a keen interest in true ensemble work; a tendency towards the multilingual; and, often, a physical presence in or connection with the island of Ireland. Tribe’s work was recently featured in The Steampunk User’s Manual: An Illustrated Practical and Whimsical Guide to Creating Retro-Futurist Dreams.

Tribe’s artistic director is Bob Kelly, a graduate of the Ecole Internationale de Jacques Lecoq. The company can be found on facebook. We are also on twitter, but we cannot be found there.
