Caitríona Ní Mhurchú and Little Wolf Productions as part of Tiger Dublin Fringe present



Dates: 14 Sep - 20 Sep

Show Time: 9.00pm

Tickets: €15 - €13 (Preview €11)

This is a show about super-peasants from the west, suburbia in the ’80s, state-making, sound, walking in single file, chewing seaweed, hauling sand, squatting, and smoking cigarettes.

Touching, evocative and, at times, funny, this poetic piece from performer and writer Caitríona Ní Mhurcú, in collaboration with award-winning visual artist Adam Gibney, draws on autobiographical and archive material and rare film footage to explore the loneliness and dislocation of being an Irish speaker in an urban environment, through the prism of Peig Sayers and the beautiful, bleak landscape of the Great Blasket.

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…
