The multi-award-winning Siren Productions returns to Project Arts Centre and Tiger Dublin Fringe with the Irish premiere of the global phenomenon GROUNDED by George Brant.

It’s the speed.

It’s the G-Force pressing you back as you tear the sky.

It’s the ride.

She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. She’s grounded. Her career in the sky is over. Now she flies remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and returning to her family at night. As the pressure mounts, the boundaries begin to blur.

Clare Dunne stars in this grippingly compulsive play directed by Selina Cartmell.

Should the artwork not be removed, we risk losing our charitable status. Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork.   Fiona Slevin, Chair of Project Arts Centre said: “The Board and executive of Project are conscious of their obligations…

Repeal the 8th: Maser's Mural Reinstalled at Project Arts Centre

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…
