Endling

Dates: 06 Apr - 07 Apr

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €14-16

An endling is an individual that is the last of its species. Once the endling dies, the species becomes extinct. ENDLING uses dance, vocals, music and design to reimagine tales of funerary and mourning rituals of Scottish and Irish Gaels, their chants, songs and customs; many on their own deathbeds and disappearing with each passing generation. Rob Heaslip collides popular and folk culture to create a tale of collective memory and consciousness in a world tinged with acid pink, green and purple. Contemporary meets traditional, macabre meets joyful, and morbid fascination is welcomed in to the raucous world of a Gaelic wake.

Crìocharan – an neach mu dheireadh dhe a sheòrsa. Le a bhàs, thig bàs air an t-seòrsa sin. Tha ENDLING a’ cleachdadh dannsa, guth, ceòl agus ìomhaigheachd airson cruth ùr a chur air traidiseanan tìodhlachaidh agus caoinidh nan Gaidheal Albannach agus Èireannach, na traidiseanan sin fhèin air leabaidh a’ bhàis le gach ginealach a dh’fhalbhas. Tha Rob Heaslip a’ tarraing an t-seann-nòis agus an nòis-ùir còmhla airson sgeulachd dhathach, dhealrach a tha a’ snìomh iongnadh mu bhàs còmhla ri othail an taigh-fhaire Ghàidhealaich.

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…
