Double Bill: The River + Pidgin'

Dates: 06 Mar - 07 Mar

Show Time: 7:30pm & 2:30pm

Tickets: €20 Full - €15 Concession

 

THE RIVER (premiere) is Flora Fauna Projects latest work – a large scale dance piece performed by 20 women primarily from Sheriff Street and Ballybough. Over the past 6 months they have been undergoing a unique and intense training programme in contemporary dance led by choreographer Maria Nilsson Waller and Irish electronic composer/writer Stace Gill / The Sei.

Loaded with urban beats and artificial sunlight, ’The River’ is the collective expression of every woman on this team. A story of true and hidden beauty, female strength and camaraderie, poetic and honest physicality and above all, courage, acceptance and flow.

Choreography: Maria Nilsson Waller
Sound: Stace Gill/The Sei
Light: Matt Burke/Maria Nilsson Waller

 

PIDGIN’ is a type of simplified or bastardized language which came into existence as a result of contact between two or more languages, in order to find means of communication, occurring for example in situations like trade, migration and colonization.

“Being born and living my early childhood in Nigeria and growing up in Ireland, surely a form of pidginization process took place, on a psychological and physical level, and this solo is me looking into that process. It is a personal quest into the hybridity of my selfhood, using sound, music, memory and improvisation as entry points.”

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…

Future Forecast Online

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it?

In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally   This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…
