Maurice Joseph Kelliher created Criminal Queers in 2011 – a dance / theatre performance under the influence of anti-heroines, broken heroes, and notorious outsiders. It was a storming success – gaining a 4 star review from Irish Theatre Magazine and a nomination for ABSOLUT Fringe’s Spirit of the Fringe Award 2011. Live Collision invited Maurice to go back under the influence and revisit the research material and approaches used in making the show, while at the same time linking with artistic ambitions and intriguing propositions around future projects. From this Maurice created, a series of b-sides titled Spectacular Failures.
