We all know Catholicism is camper than a girl guide’s jamboree, but until now there’s never been a movie to prove it. This South American musical concoction tells the story of young Natalia who, on receiving the present of a TV (from Jesus himself), becomes obsessed with Flashdance and wearing torn t-shirts like Jennifer Beals. With her best mate, little gay Carlos in tow, headbands and legwarmers at the ready, she rehearses songs on a motorway overpass, dreaming of stardom.

Cut to 20 years later. In between auditions, Natalia is working at the Cristo Theme Park (the only theme park approved by the Vatican) dressed up as the Ten Commandments. But, as this film shows, you should never give up hope. When a national TV talent show rolls into town – hosted by Almodóvar icon, Rosy De Palma – Natalia gets the chance to fulfill the dreams she’s held on to since she was the most Catholic child in her religiously crazy hometown.

Miss Tacuarembó is a kick-ass musical that puts the kitsch back in church – what a feeling!

Spanish with English subtitles.

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?

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…
