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 Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

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…
