DECREASING INFINITY (2010)

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND AN EXTRA PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN ADDED AT 8PM ON 22 MAY.

DECREASING INFINITY, a duet for two men created by emerging choreographer Balbir Singh, brings together Kathak (a north Indian classical dance style) and contemporary dance.Starting in their purest forms, seen through abstract mirrors, the two styles of dance are attracted to each other, until they collide, at which point neither style of dance exists; rather, something new is formed.

Clear, sharp and intensely rhythmic, the dance is accompanied by a tabla player and a human beatboxer, who improvise a driving and edgy live sound score. The performance will be preceded by a short film about Singh’s process of making Decreasing Infinity.

Balbir Singh trained in contemporary dance and Kathak dance before establishing his own company. Always working with original live music, Singh’s work challenges dancers to explore their musicality and physicality equally. He has recently been commissioned to create a work with synchronised swimmers as part of the Cultural Olympiad for London 2012.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. 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…

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…
