Where We Live



Dates: 11 Mar - 21 Mar

Show Time: 11am-10pm daily, excluding St Patrick's Day 17th March

Tickets: €Free

St. Patrick’s Day 2013, amidst the temporary architecture of illuminated amusements in front of Dublin’s Custom House, people are spun and twisted, flung skyward in vertiginous arcs.

St. Patrick’s Day 2014, the shell of the Anglo Irish Bank HQ lies abandoned. Occasional revellers walk past. Two years later, construction is in full flow as the building is made ready for the new Central Bank.

Landfall is an immersive sound and film installation that brings together observations on the island of Ireland as a set of geographical, social, political, and ideological conditions, charting the beat and the ballet of the changing city over much of the past decade. At the centre of this is the drummer, around which spontaneous events unfold late at night on Dublin’s O’Connell Street.

Using multiple screens simultaneously, chronology and geography are disrupted, thus correspondences across the material are explored through sequence and juxtaposition, allowing a more complex reading of the subject to emerge. Sound, dispersed across the space, is synthesised, amplified and manipulated to shape perception of the films. Through accumulation, themes of contested ground, boundaries, containment, resources, energy, systems, and structures are explored.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
