The Thing is?…

by Justine Doswell

A dance of cause and effect, of action and reaction, of choice, chance and determinism.
Fate, coincidence, accident – we confer meaning on to the arbitrary and gloss over destiny.
“The only way of expressing emotion in the form of art is by finding an ‘objective correlative’; in other words, a set of objects, a situation, a chain of events which shall be the formula of that particular emotion…” – T. S. Eliot

Dancers with boxes unpack objects chosen by you.
You unpack the rest.

Justine has been based in Dublin since 1997, working in dance, theatre, fashion and design.

Supported by the Dance Ireland Residency Programme.

Pretty Green Eyes

by Shane Daniel Byrne

Once considered a new exciting talent, a rising star and “one to watch” of contemporary performance art in Dublin, Shane Daniel Byrne has nose-dived and crash landed his career ever since. He lost his nerve. Inspiration out the window. Writer’s block – on the lock. He’s thirty years old now. Well, my God.

He’s decided now to leave onstage nudity and fake blood and tears behind. Shane Daniel Byrne has decided to become a comedian. Grit your teeth and dig your nails in; you’re about to watch the start.

Disclaimer – This is not a play. This is actually what he’s doing.

Kindly Supported by nothing or no-one.

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…
