Special Event


Dates: 20 Jun - 24 Jun

Show Time: 8:00pm

Tickets: €15 - €12


A dance to the centre of stillness

In the beautiful gardens of The Sanctuary meditation centre, Smithfield, you are invited on a journey of mindfulness. A dance duet drawing inspiration from the book Stillness by Sister Stan.

This performance will take you on your own personal journey through the gardens to find the place below the tide of your thoughts.

Dancer and Choreographer Lisa McLoughlin and performance artist Fergus Byrne will perform a duet through the gardens and spaces of Sanctuary.

We look at the struggle of maintaining mindfulness within our busy world, then sink beneath the struggle to the endless space within.

Please note that this performance does not take place in Project Arts Centre. Below the Tide will be performed at the Sanctuary on Stanhope Street, Dublin 7. Get directions to The Sanctaury here.

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.…

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…
