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.

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More

Hi there, How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. 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…Read More
