Xnthony aka anthony Keigher smashes pop music, comedy and cabaret into smush, piecing together distinctive, theatrical and original work from the fragments.
I am passionate about bringing the club to the theatre and the theatre to the club with work that travels from london city all the way to community halls in rural ireland. I bring audiences from different areas together and am passionate about reaching out to new people and places.
I engage audiences through energetic, enlivening and thought provoking performances which knows what you expect and flips that on its head.
Over the past 8 years i have used social media in exciting and innovative ways to reach a wide audience and gain national press attention in ireland and abroad. This content has always been bespoke to the project and the audience. it’s exciting and energetic.
it gets people talking.
below is a small SAMPLE OF my WORK!
Dancing on the dart
video Promotion to raise money for my new theatre show in Dublin fringe in ireland 2013. the video was deliberately geared towards being ridiculous and shareable.
fundraising target was met while gaining national press interest and going viral.
In a bid to create a buzz for my Dublin Fringe Show my alter ego xnthony took to the streets, answering the public's questions and signing their belongings. he wasn’t even famous.
promo for DOUZE
a pop comedy musical about getting to the Eurovision. but also about fame and Brexit. The show continued to tour until 2018 including prague fringe and edinburgh fringe (where it had a sell out run).
To launch xnthony’s eurovision ambitions he held a press conference on the streets of dublin.
Video gained national media attention. Performance sold out.
as part of the promotion for the show we sent out bespoke invitations to 150 fans of xnthony to their home addresses.
the post invited the fans to share the above image and to ‘expect drama’.
Promo for CONFIRMATION
Confirmation explores LGBT+ life in rural Ireland. it premiered in Ireland in 2018 and will tour Edinburgh fringe in august 2019 at pleasance theatre.
For this project I went with a more traditional route. The concept of the show resonated with the public, so I kept things simple. A strong photoshoot, and some great media appearances (see below). We gained great online and print exposure. The show sold out across 7 days.
xnthony spoke to Ryan turbidY on RTE with exposure to an audience of 300,000 people.
