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.

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.

Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork.

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…Read More
