Two Fingers Up

by Seón Simpson and Gina Donnelly

Seón and Gina graduated from Queens University Belfast (2017) with 1st class honours in Drama. Both now work in the Belfast theatre scene. Seón works as a freelance director and Gina, as a stage and production manager. Two Fingers Up is their reaction to the culture of shame surrounding female sexuality. They felt empowered to create a story with a positive, humorous attitude to female sexuality after seeing how the media and judicial system reacted to the Ulster Rugby Rape Trial earlier in 2018, seemingly holding the victim on trial and shaming her choices. Two Fingers Up investigates the sex education system in Northern Ireland and the taboo around female masturbation told through the eyes of a Belfast teenager. The monologue is based upon Gina and Seón’s experiences of their peers talking about masturbation, and their own research into and memories of sex education.

Mrs Cellophane

by Femme Bizarre

If someone stood up in a crowd
And raised their voice up way out loud
And waved their arm and shook their leg
You’d notice them.

And even without clucking like a hen
Everyone gets noticed, now and then
Unless, of course, that person it should be
Invisible, inconsequential me.

Welcome to Mrs Cellophane’s Birthday Party.
Well this is embarrassing .
Did you invite her?

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…

Future Forecast Online

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it?

In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally   This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…
