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.

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…
