Irish Premiere with post-show Discussion

Ensemble casts light on the scarcity of older artists on the professional contemporary dance stage. Light and poignant in equal measure, this creation evolved slowly over several years through the choreographers’ close collaboration with three cast members in their 60s and 70s.

On a sparse and open stage, the group share a journey of interactions and lay bare their strengths, efforts and possibilities together. Through various choreographic challenges, the performers endeavour to keep up, to stay in time, to hold on and to hold each other.

Ensemble is a joyous expression of togetherness and often surprising physicality of a group of people of different ages.

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…

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…
