Kind Words Spoken

“Lea Moro weaves allusions to art history into her piece as well as ironic dance phrases… A truly uplifting evening” Der Tagesspiegel

Dublin Dance Festival presents

Dance

(b)reaching stillness

Dates: 11 May - 12 May

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €22 - €18

Choreographer Lea Moro courageously takes Baroque still life painting as a starting point for this dance piece. With playful humour, she masterfully weaves together her rich lexicon of contrasts to create a work that is simultaneously full of friction, dynamism and absolute calm.

Three bodies, naked from the waist up, lie motionless on a blue floor. They begin to stir, probing the idea of motionlessness: a construct of the mind, not the body. With tiny, subtle and ornate movements, they use everything they have to render visible the lifeblood that runs through their beating bodies.

As Gustav Mahler’s lush and dramatic Resurrection Symphony begins, the dancers rise, then fall back, then strive upwards again. Glamourous climaxes emerge from the monochrome surface in this dynamic cycle of collapse and resurrection.

CLICK HERE TO BUY Since 2016 we have been steadfast in our support and trust in the work of Maser and The HunReal Issues. The Repeal the 8th mural, in all its forms, has become not only a poignant and impassioned emblem of the movement, but a brave icon of solidarity in a time of momentous and unprecedented change in Ireland. We are immensely proud to have stood behind their vision. But our work isn’t done yet. Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work and now,…

You can’t paint over an issue, but you can paint over an artwork! Maser mural update.

We are painting over the Maser Mural (again). The Charities Regulator has informed Project Arts Centre that the display of Maser’s ‘Repeal the 8th’ artwork is ‘political activity’ and that we are therefore in breach of the Charities Act 2009 and not in line with our ‘charitable purpose’. Should the artwork not be removed, we risk losing our charitable status. Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork.   Fiona Slevin, Chair of Project Arts Centre said: “The Board and executive of Project are conscious of their obligations…
