8.00PM, 14 MAY & 9.30PM, 15 MAY

Arresting, speedy and very beautiful, Score grew from sound bites recorded in

Israel, where choreographer Yuval Pick grew up. Three exceptionally skilful young

dancers capture the urgency and complexity of a country where borders, languages

and cultures conflict and contradict.


8.00PM, 15 & 16 MAY

A dance for fingers and toes, imagined objects that fill a bare stage, and

movement woven from real-life memories make up this quirky triple bill,

featuring NOTHING for body by Howool Baek, Black by Mette Edvardsen and an

extract from Prompted Breathless by Liv O’Donoghue.


6.30PM, 18 & 19 MAY

A fun and witty double bill. In I will try, Alexander Andriyashkin asks the audience

to make changes to his dance while in Girls’ Dreams, Dmitrijs Gaitjukevich

demonstrates every fantasy he thinks girls have, accompanied by a cheesy

soundtrack and some very short shorts. Suitable ages 14+


8.00PM, 18 & 19 MAY & 6.00PM, 20 MAY

A new work from junk ensemble is something to anticipate eagerly. Performed by

an all-male cast and a live children’s choir, The Falling Song looks at the nature

of flying and falling and the dangerous relationship between the two. So quickly

wings can be replaced by crutches.


6.00PM, 22 MAY & 7.00PM, 23 MAY

Discover an emerging star of British dance. Aakash Odedra’s unique fusion of

classical Indian and contemporary dance is explored in solos created for him by

three leading choreographers Russell Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Akram

Khan alongside one of his own works.


9.00PM, 25 MAY & 3.00PM & 8.00PM, 26 MAY

Brokentalkers return with The Blue Boy following its success at Dublin Theatre

Festival in 2011. Dealing with the experiences of men and women who were

incarcerated as children in Catholic residential care institutions The Blue Boy

gives intense physical expression to the anguish of those who were silenced.

Suitable ages 16+, contains material that some may find disturbing.

Brokentalkers and junk ensemble are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of

Project Arts Centre.

Open Call - Future Forecast: HAVEN

Project Arts Centre is pleased to announce an open call for a series of 3 artist commissions. Future Forecast is a series of events and artistic interventions forming part of a speculative voyage towards the future. Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
