MADE IN DUBLIN: THE OLD TESTAMENT ACCORDING TO THE LOOSE COLLECTIVE
 
In their new work, The Loose Collective aims to make a living translation of the Old Testament, a stage-translation of this enormous body of text in its entirety. They integrate text-sampling and baroque choir, beat-boxing and diaspora-postpunk into their musical dance performance, and rearrange bible verses into unexpected combinations.Joshua 7:11 probably best describes it: ‘… for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.’The Old Testament is a coproduction of Tanzquartier Wien, Kunstverein Archipelago Wien and Performance initiative 22 Graz; grant-aided by the cultural department of the city of Vienna, Stadt Graz Kultur, Kultur Land Steiermark and bmu:kk; in cooperation with D.ID/Dance Identity Burgenland and supported by Dance Ireland/Dublin, Dansenshaus/Stockholm, Dansescenen/Copenhagen and Co-Festival and Kino Šiška/Ljubljana through Modul-dance. This presentation is supported by the Embassy of Austria in Ireland.

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.…

LOCKDOWN LETTERS

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS.
