Kind Words Spoken

“Lusciously theatrical….  Everyday I Wake up Hopeful is a funny, sad, touching paean to the profundity of supposedly small lives and small thoughts.” CultureHub Magazine 

"A hugely kinetic ride through those highs and lows, a superb blend of social and cultural observation." The Digital Fix on East Belfast Boy 

"DJ Phil Kieran has mixed an incessantly pounding techno soundscape, which perfectly tees up Oona Doherty’s trademark gritty choreography.” The Even Hand on East Belfast Boy

Following on from the overwhelming success of their internationally award-winning production of Stacey Gregg’s Scorch and 4 wins at the 2018 Irish Times Theatre Awards for Red (Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Set Design) Prime Cut Productions are back at the Project Arts Centre with their critically acclaimed Double Bill of Fintan Brady’s East Belfast Boy and John Patrick Higgins’ Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful.

East Belfast Boy by Fintan Brady

Meet Davy. The things he sees. His streets. His mates. His girl and… The Boys. With pumping techno, pulverising movement and street sharp poetry, East Belfast Boy is a rollercoaster ride and a cliché-free zone.

“It is what it is. It’s hard to say what it is… It’s just you know… What it is…. 110%”

Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful by John Patrick Higgins

Malachy has made a decision, perhaps for the first time in his life. Tonight is the night.
He has six bottles of wine, a bucket of chicken and he wants to talk about it. He really wants to talk about it.

Poignant and confessional – Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful is also desperately funny. Funny to the bone.

Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…

Future Forecast Online

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally   This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…
