Dance Space Upstairs
Presented as part of ABSOLUT Fringe 2011
A loose alliance of lovely outlaws raid the literary and cinematic archives and invite you to encounter beauty and danger in a dance/theatre performance inspired by anti-heroines, angelic hooligans, and notorious icons.
Featuring charismatic performers and immersed in a live soundtrack by David Turpin & The Johns that touches on sweet torch songs and bitter 60’s pop, Criminal Queers is an inventive cut-up and re-edit of curious poses and queer close-ups which puts representations of sexuality, gender, innocence, and guilt in the frame.
Previous work by this dance/theatre artist and his collaborators has been described as: “Carefully guided… a raw and visceral performance.” The Irish Times on Paradise Dance Hall, ABSOLUT Fringe 2010.

Before the show, why not…?
…have a look around our gallery. During exhibitions our gallery is open Mon-Sat from 11AM until the performance begins…. …or catch up with your friends by having a drink in our bar. We offer a full bar service so if you just can’t wait to talk about the show join us afterwards for another.
Present your Project Art Centre ticket (evening performances only) at the Fleet Street Car Park and you will qualify for a special fixed price of just 5. Ask at box office for more information.
Want to grab a bite to eat before the show? Why not pop down to Milano Restaurant in Temple Bar and pick their pre-theatre menu – Pizza, Pasta or Salad plus and a glass of wine – for just €12.50. Available from 5pm -7pm, just show your tickets or email booking confirmation to avail of this offer.
And if you’re in a rush remember that Milano also delivers to Project Arts Centre. Choose from a range of delicious made to order pizzas delivered to you in our bar. No queues and no need to even leave the building. Ask a member of our bar staff for more information.
