Dublin Theatre Festival presents

Special Event

Blast: International Critics’ Forum

Dates: 07 Oct - 07 Oct

Show Time: 4pm

When you watch a performance, what is it that you are looking for? Join the makers of Blast, a new platform for conversations about theatre, where our panel of Irish and international theatre critics will take a fresh perspective on this year’s Dublin Theatre Festival programme.

An informed and lively critical discussion, Blast addresses the work, the context for its creation and its impact on the audience, to help identify the talking points of the festival. And isn’t that what it’s all about?

Bringing together critics with a wealth of experience and a breadth reference of different theatre cultures, this forum considers performance from several angles and welcomes audience reflection and feedback. If there’s nothing more deadly than consensus, here is an opportunity for spirited debate, challenge and perhaps something rarer still – a chance to change your mind.

This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
