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.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

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…
