Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 16 May - 16 May

Tickets: €22

Fall and Recover is a moving work created in collaboration with survivors of torture, a celebration of the dignity and determination of extraordinary people and the power of the human spirit.

“We are fallen.  We have come up.  When you get the chance to move on, we move on.”  A Survivor of Torture from Fall and Recover

Cast members have lost homes, careers, family and health but their dance celebrates the power of the human spirit and carries imprints from their lives and future hopes.

Rossa Ó Snodaigh’s (Kíla) live music subtly underpins these unspoken shared fragments, tinged with sorrow, joy and anticipation.

“Dignity….hope that permeates”

We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

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.
