MORE BERLIN THAN BOSTON (THROUGHTS FROM THE FESTIVAL)

A series of panel discussions presented in association with RTÉ Radio 1

In the midst of the boom an Irish politician ignited debate by claiming that Ireland was economically and spiritually closer to Boston than Berlin. Ireland’s artists begged to differ. Some of the countless writers, actors and visual artists who flocked to Berlin in recent years to avail of its lower cost of living and thriving arts scene return to discuss what Dublin has to learn from Berlin.

Presented as part of The Radical Mind, a programme of independent German theatre to mark the 50th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut in Ireland.

More Berlin than Boston? will be broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 on Oct 3 at 10pm

This event is free, tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis. Please arrive on time.

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…
