“Do you want me to dance or do you want me to talk?”

In Jessica and Me, the long-standing soloist of the iconic Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal does both with irresistible charm, talent and comic flair.

With a shock of black curls, an infectious laugh and a pair of red stilettos, Cristiana Morganti offers a tantalising glimpse into her career, from her classical ballet training to her fateful training with Pina.

This much anticipated new solo show is a self-portrait in two voices: her inner self (Cristiana) and her alter-ego (Jessica). She alternates between losing herself in a whirlwind of movement and observing herself with a fierce and unrelenting humour.

A fascinating exposé on the life of a star dancer – both on and off the stage.


 

“Cristiana Morganti merges the fury of a Mediterranean virago with the wide-eyed innocence of a clown… an irreverent fairytale of Cristiana through the looking glass”.
Il Venerdidi Republica

For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

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.…
