Wrongheaded


Bringing together dance, film and spoken word poetry, Wrongheaded – a dancing body’s response to the 8th amendment.

This new film / performance piece sees award-winning choreographer Liz Roche collaborating with an exceptional cast of dancers, spoken word poet Elaine Feeny and film director Mary Wycherley.

Constantly at odds with each other while being caught in a relationship of frustrated repetition and ritual, the performers in film and live performance find ways to physicalise the undercurrent of desperation that Irish women face today around choices for their own bodies.

Hope Hunt

Hope Hunt by Oona Doherty as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe at Project

Oona Doherty performs a distillation of the Male. Thumping sweaty theatre. Dance as virtuosic states, heaving lungs shout in the dark.

Doherty takes you through a dirty Europe, on a shared nervous system. This is a physical expression of the place between the flesh and the soul.

Hope Hunt is an attempt to deconstruct the stereotype of the concrete disadvantaged male, and raise it up into a Caravaggio bright white limbo.

It looks to make the smicks, the spides, the hoods, the gypsies, the knackers, into the birds of paradise. It is a hunt for hope.

Produced by Katie McCann (with thanks to Neil Brown)
Supported by the British Council, Prime Cuts Productions and The MAC (Belfast)
Warning: Contains adult themes

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? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. 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…
