The Irish premiere of a major work by Marina Carr.
Hecuba is a passionate re-imagining of the aftermath of the Trojan War and the events surrounding its iconic characters; a series of intense, dangerous personal encounters and impossible choices, described by those who witnessed and experienced them.

In the time of the devastation of Syria and the global refugee crisis, when climate change is every day bringing catastrophe closer to the shores of the West, it’s a disturbingly appropriate question.
This drama of a complex and powerful woman is also a depiction of the effect of war and its emotional cost to the individual.

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020 Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…Read More
