Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 09 Jun - 09 Jun

Show Time: 6:00pm

Tickets: €10




A performance lecture by Graham Ryall.

In 2009 THEATREclub sat in a room in Rialto for four hours with a man called Graham Ryall. He talked them through the last forty years of our history, through Community, Drugs, Politics, Society, Crime & Health. He told told them facts, jokes, stories and song lyrics and he told them with acute intelligence, empathy and heart.

It was this talk that inspired their critically acclaimed play HEROIN (Spirit of The Fringe Award winner in 2010). Not only did the talk inspire the show it also fundamentally changed how they viewed the world around them.

This talk is the first event in a brand new THEATREclub initiative- The world is getting bigger not smaller. It is about finding broader ways to think about the world around us and providing a space for ourselves and our audience to challenge our thinking about how we live now.

Graham has been giving this talk regularily for years, and everytime rehearsals start for HEROIN, he comes in and does it again and it never fails to inspire.

THEATREclub invite you to hear this talk too. Graham will go through our entire social history and take you on a trip that will blow your mind.

Expect your jaw to drop. Expect to be moved.  Expect to be engaged. Expect to have all your questions answered. Expect to learn. Expect theatre.

Expect to laugh, and you might cry too.

Expect change.

The world is getting bigger, not smaller. See you there.

All proceeds go to future performances of HEROIN and workshops with drug users.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
