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.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

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.…
