THE MOTHER has one son, hence the title. From The Liberties, her best friend, Mary, is married but childless, The MOTHER’s never been married, she’s against it really. This won’t pass the Bechdel Test, that’s deliberate. There’s a lot of drama, that’s not what’s really important but we’ll use it to get at what is. Class, it’s a real thing. Still.

A new play inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s learning play, ‘The Mother’, featuring Lauren Larkin, Amy Conroy, Ericka Roe & Leah Moore. Set on MEATH STREET, we’re telling the story of THE MOTHER. Backwards. In 7 year intervals, ending outside LARKIN’S BUTCHERS*.

*recently sold and redeveloped as a Hickey’s Pharmacy. There’s 3 chemists within 3 minutes walk. That’s in the now, not in the past.

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.

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…

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…
