Kind Words Spoken

“Roseanna Purcell and Aidan Crowe deliver raucously... The lost weekend has been done before a million times. But when it’s good, it’s really good. And Midsummer is really good” Sunday Independent 

"An unorthodox love story which would be difficult not to enjoy.” No More Workhorse 

"Insatiably dynamic chemistry... Stunning vocals, engaging performances, and fantastic stage presence. ‘Midsummer’ is a story which begins in a place we can all relate to, and ends with a story that we all aspire to live." Meg.ie

"...wonderfully done... directed with a great sense of pace and rhythm" Dublin City FM

A midsummer weekend in Edinburgh.

It’s raining.

Bob is a failing car salesman on the fringes of the city’s underworld. Helena is a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She is totally out of his league; he is not her usual type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together…

Which is, of course, why they do.

Midsummer is a musical tour through Edinburgh; a great lost weekend of bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and self-loathing hangovers.

A collaboration between David Greig and singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre, brought to Project by the same team as the 2016 hit This Lime Tree Bower.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. 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…
