A new play by Emmet Kirwan about brothers, Dublin and dance music

The Tiger Dublin Fringe 2014 smash hit and winner of Best Fringe Performers Award, Dublin Oldschool returns to Dublin this December, restaged and redesigned for Project Arts Centre.

Join Jason, a wannabe DJ on a chemically enhanced trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one misguided misadventure to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, drug busts and hilltop raves, he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel.

Daniel is an educated, homeless addict, living on the streets of Dublin. The brothers haven’t seen or spoken to each other in three years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over tunes, trips, their history and their city. Two brothers living on the edge, perhaps they have more in common than they think, but how long can this buzz last?

Dark comedy, family drama and spoken word odyssey – Dublin Oldschool is a new play that snaps, crackles, raps and rhymes, with high octane performances by Emmet Kirwan (Sarah & Steve) and Ian Lloyd Anderson (LOVE/HATE), directed by Phillip McMahon.

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…
