Kind Words Spoken

“Mufutau Yusuf unassumingly takes the stage before his fingers start flying, leading his body into circular movements… Yusuf delights in his ability to transition from tiny isolated movements to large jumps and torso undulations and back again, effortlessly, as if he is having a conversation with himself” Cindy Placenti, The Dance Enthusiast

“Aoife McAtamney is spellbinding in a solo that unfolds like rapid shifts in memory. Her haunting Celtic voice sings acapella as her supple, searching movements convey a natural femininity” Cindy Placenti, The Dance Enthusiast   “Ranging from simplicity of Mary Nunan to poetic angst of Mufutau Yusuf.. to infectious rhythms of Liam O Scanlain … to wild fantasy-inducing people-forest of John Scott” Wendy Perron, Dance Magazine 

“John Scott brings the esoteric universe of German and Italian opera to a more accessible level… Scott capers between two selves, human and mythological, creating an environment where evil conquers darkness and the need for escape is imminent.  His singing voice - a colossal, reverberating tenor - shoots through the space like a comet” Cindy Placenti, The Dance Enthusiast

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. 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…
