In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni: Roberto Castello / ALDES (Italy)

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €18- €22

Irish Premiere

The cold glow of a video projector – the only source of light – illuminates a rugged black and white space, setting the scene for an immersive and disconcerting exploration of the human condition.

In this enigmatically titled work, ‘We go around at night and are consumed by fire’, controversial Italian choreographer Roberto Castello fuses cinema, dance and theatre to offer insights into a life consumed by endless desire.

Four dancers move together, never communicating directly, yet finding small moments of contact, even tenderness. They openly struggle with the brusque and emotional movements. Like characters in a Beckett play, they are relentlessly driven to carry on.

Little by little, the repetitive, pulsating rhythm of music and movement draws us into a trance-like space. Both comical and grotesque, we experience an almost physical empathy for the profound exhaustion of the performers, whose journey reflects our insatiable quest for more.

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…
