A work in progress
What happens when a performer presents newspaper articles to a live audience? We look at the ways this liveness changes the articles, and also the way the articles change the performer. It’s an examination of how people process information and how this in turn informs our contemporary aural/oral culture.
Walter Benjamin says information is something that loses its value once it has been understood – whereas story is something that bears repeating.
This experimental theatre, which is traditionally an endeavour at repetition, is used to unpack what ‘bears repeating’ from the news.
This project has been developed with help from The Arts Council, The Irish Theatre Institute, Pan Pan Theatre and Live Collision.

Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork. Fiona Slevin, Chair of Project Arts Centre said: “The Board and executive of Project are conscious of their obligations under…Read More

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…Read More
