Bio S.a.D. Stories

SAD Stories is a creative collaboration between Darragh McLoughlin and Sophia Kurmann founded in 2017. This project was born from the need to creatively connect with each other, and the world around them.

We start by looking at familiar experiences, deconstruct them and then rebuild them in order to challenge people's expectations of reality and normality.


Darragh has an education in circus and performance art. In 2012 he founded Squarehead Productions, a contemporary circus company on the interface between artistic research and creation. Squarehead Productions has received numerous awards such as: Jaune Talent Cirque Europe’s -  Circus Next Award, the Irish Arts Council’s ‘Circus Project Award’,  the ‘Next Generation Bursary Award’, and a ‘Comic Innovation Award’ at BE Festival. Darragh has taught in professional schools, and performed in over 12 European Countries.


Sophia finished University, but soon realised that an office wasn't going to be where she wanted to shine. She started acrobatics, went to circus school and has since been performing, organising an arts festival (The Palace Arts) and founded Perform Your Art, a platform for performing artists. Her greatest asset is her can-do attitude and the stamina to make things happen.
