Titania And Bottom C.1790 By Henry Fuseli 1741 1825

An illustrated, poetic, theatrical presentation, written and performed by Daniel Reardon.

The show is based on ‘Fond Pageant’, the author’s book of poems published in 2018 and examines the healing and redemptive powers of art

The concept for the show was sparked by an unprovoked and inexplicable epileptic seizure suffered by Reardon while attending the opening night of “Ulysses” at the Abbey Theatre in October 2017.

The historical and autobiographical links in the show contextualise the paintings and the poems, marking the various milestones in Reardon’s life; from early education in New York, arrival in Dublin, embarking on a career in the arts, marriage, children and career to date as a 72 year old man.
