Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 22 Jan - 22 Jan

Tickets: €8


Unlucky in love, Corkonian Alice is all set for her sister’s wedding (always the bridesmaid and never the bride), when a chance encounter with delivery boy Warren sends her spiraling through the Dublin streets.

In an epic chase for love on the strangest night of her life, Alice tumbles through the dark, bombarded by grinning politicians, pyjamaclad bowsies, egg heads on the edge, the self help mafia, media gargoyles, twisted scissor sisters, and of course, Delores – The Queen of Hartstown.

Things sure ain’t what they used to be. The looking glass is well and truly cracked. But is true love possible on the other side… or is this town just full of clowns?

Following a bumper 2010 season with WERK at the Abbey, Queer Notions at Project Arts Centre and huge success at Electric Picnic, THISISPOPBABY bring you a modern day fairy tale for the electropop generation. Full of explosive tunes, unforgettable characters and crackling action, this is a work-in-progress presentation of an essential new musical about the here and the now.

THISISPOPBABY is part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
