Fragments was founded in 2008 by Shane Dempsey, Hannah Burke and Tom Flannery. Fragments is an international ensemble of theatre & video practitioners based in Ireland and London. Their work is inspired by the European model of a resident ensemble, that creates detailed work over a pro-longed length of time. They place a major emphasis on the unique value of creative collaboration. Hannah Burke, who is their writer in residence, is responsible for the development of new writing that is inspired by working closely with the actors in the rehearsal room.
