Brokentalkers in association with Project Arts Centre present

Theatre

This Beach (2017)

Dates: 16 Nov - 18 Nov

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €16 - €18

This Beach is a blistering satire of white western privilege made in response to the global refugee crisis

A private beach inhabited by a family; a European family.

They are the owners of the beach. The beach has been in their family for generations.

The family celebrate a wedding, a union between two sides; each of whom can offer something to the other. Security, prosperity, progeny.

During the wedding celebration a stranger arrives on the shore of their beach. The family must decide how to deal with this stranger.

A response to the current refugee crisis gripping Europe and the notion of sovereignty of one people over a piece of land; and the lengths people will go to bar entry to their dominion.

Open Call - Future Forecast: HAVEN

Project Arts Centre is pleased to announce an open call for a series of 3 artist commissions. Future Forecast is a series of events and artistic interventions forming part of a speculative voyage towards the future. Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it.

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.…
