Kind Words Spoken

"Essential, brave, and transformative. More than anything, Coady’s work breaks the fistlike silence around suicide" Georgia Straight

“Doireann Coady delivers one of the bravest, rawest, emotionally exhausting performances you’re ever likely to see... A performance that howls, screams, excites, and eviscerates. A cry, a prayer, a never-ending love letter, ‘I’m Not Here’ is touched by the divine.” The Arts Review

I'm Not Here

Dates: 01 Feb - 02 Feb

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €16 - 18

Doireann is here and she wants to check
“Is that working properly?”
She’s going to be doing a couple of songs, a couple of poems and maybe a few stories.
“Is this working?”
She’s after finding a load of tapes.
It’s like a DJ set.
You might dance if you want to.
You might not.
You might be here and then there.
Things will appear and then disappear
But you will not be afraid.

It’s a duet with her brother.
He’s not here. She’s here. You’re here.
Thanks very much for being here.

It’s a duet with her brother.
He’s not here.
He is dead.

Doireann Coady is back again to stage the unstageable, to speak to the silence and to dance where there is no light.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
