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.

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.
