Beyond the Binary: An Interactive Workshop

Dates: 14 Mar - 14 Mar

Show Time: 3pm

Tickets: €0.00

An interactive workshop led by Anna Martine Freeman with Oscar O’Leary Fitzpatrick

Beyond the Binary is for actors and theatre makers exploring the stereotypes and challenges that we face when it comes to gender roles and what steps can be taken to continue progression in moving beyond gender binaries and tropes.

  • Connect like-minded Actors and theatre makers who want to see and explore beyond the Binary. How can we de-centre and subvert expectations around gender and identity through play?
  • Discuss the industry and how it has changed, progressed, regressed – i.e. in Elizabethan times male actors would play female characters as a standard, their gender did not get in the way of the storytelling. Could we see a future world where an actor’s ability to portray a character is valued beyond their gender?
  • Challenge the stereotypes and clichés about gender that we are constantly having to come up against as actors and theatre makers.
  • Empower actors and theatre makers to bring their identity to their work and explore moving beyond the social categories that don’t serve the stories we want to tell!

 

Please note that this event takes place in Studio 4, The Lab, Foley Street, Dublin 1

Limited Edition Prints by Maser: You Can't Paint Over an Issue

CLICK HERE TO BUY Since 2016 we have been steadfast in our support and trust in the work of Maser and The HunReal Issues. The Repeal the 8th mural, in all its forms, has become not only a poignant and impassioned emblem of the movement, but a brave icon of solidarity in a time of momentous and unprecedented change in Ireland. We are immensely proud to have stood behind their vision. But our work isn’t done yet. Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work and now,…

You can’t paint over an issue, but you can paint over an artwork! Maser mural update.

We are painting over the Maser Mural (again). The Charities Regulator has informed Project Arts Centre that the display of Maser’s ‘Repeal the 8th’ artwork is ‘political activity’ and that we are therefore in breach of the Charities Act 2009 and not in line with our ‘charitable purpose’. Should the artwork not be removed, we risk losing our charitable status. 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…
