Meet the freaks of Riley’s Odditorium: Countess Marketa, an armless bearded lady; Tiny, the world’s fattest man; Millie and Lillie, the Siamese twins and Serena the mermaid. This travelling freak show is nearing the end of the road, with fewer and fewer people buying tickets to the show. Futureproof is about their quest to find the answer to the age old question of performance: how to give audiences what they want?
During its award-winning first run in Scotland in 2011, Futureproof asks us to think about the struggle for self-hood and bodily autonomy; a theme which continues to have relevance in Ireland today.
In association with Project Arts Centre, Cork Midsummer and The Everyman, Futureproof reunites writer Lynda Radley and director Tom Creed in a stunning new production set to premiere in their old stomping ground at Cork Midsummer Festival.

You may have noticed some new faces around the building... With 2017 drawing to a close, we're already gearing up for the new year, including welcoming some new faces to the Project team. And while we're very excited to have some new additions on board, we're also incredibly sad to wave goodbye to Claire O'Neill who has joined THISISPOPBABY as General Manager. Claire has been General Manger of Project Arts Centre since 2013, overseeing management and operations, as well the development of Project's new strategic plan, Project 2020.

Inner City Helping Homeless collected over 7,500 shoeboxes during their Dublin Fill a Luas appeal last Christmas. We want this year to be even bigger and we need your help. Christmas is fast approaching, and while the festive season is a time of celebration for most of us, it can also be a tough time for many people, not least the homeless community. Here in Temple Bar we’re acutely aware of the hardships faced by people who sleep rough on our streets, and with record increases in homelessness this year, now, more than ever, they need our help.
