by James Moran

Omalia is a show about the internet and the collective unconscious. Cyberpsychologist and comedian James Moran has written some scripts to be performed by himself and actor Hannah Mamalis (The Egg is a Lonely Hunter, Dreamgun). The scripts are based around text drawn from comment sections all over the internet, each one brimming over with the archetypal, neurotic and contemplative characters of the online unconscious. They’re funny but not without their tragedy.

James Moran has an MSc in Cyberpsychology (IADT). In 2018 he co-directed Oneday with Dick Walsh (Dublin Fringe Festival 2018). Previously he wrote and performed The Assassination of Pope Urban II (2017). He has also performed at Vodafone Comedy Festival, Electric Picnic and Body & Soul.

Son of a Preacher Man

by Matthew Malone

In this work-in-progress, Matthew Malone explores and explodes the dramatic tension between his father’s origins in contrast to his own. What happens when the young Irish male of today looks nothing like his past? Directed by Fionnuala Gygax, Son of a Preacher Man is a play of questions – of selfhood, social politics, and ultimately Irishness.

Matthew is an Irish actor and theatre-maker. He is a recent graduate of The Lir and previously studied Drama and English at Trinity. Matthew recently worked with Bombinate Theatre in the Dublin Fringe and he’s currently developing a new show Faultline with ANU for next year.

Performer & Writer: Matthew Malone
Director: Fionnuala Gygax

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…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

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…
