NINE YEARS

Dates: 11 May - 11 May

Tickets: €7

Nine years ago two friends decided to see the world. Mainly on foot and latterly on bicycles the two have since travelled the length and breadth of Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Australia. As they moved around the world the two friends, Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters, offered theatrical presentations as a gift to the people they met on their journey. Nine years and seven hundred performances later they have returned home, the journey is complete. This new performance by the internationally acclaimed duo attempts, for the first time, to bring together their entire body of work in one ninety-minute show. The heart-shaped topography of Brussels, the shores of Lake Lucerne, downtown Philadelphia, the North Sea, the Arctic Circle, the blue skies of Lisbon’s July and most of Switzerland will be revisited in a final attempt to make some sense of the world around us. A funny and touching performance about travel and meeting people, saying hello and waving good-bye.

Presented as part of We Are Here 2.0 by Dublin Docklands Development Authority and Project Arts Centre.

Please note that this is an off-site event. NINE YEARS takes place at SS Michael & John, Essex Street West, a three minute walk from Project.

Created & performed by: GARY WINTERS & GREGG WHELAN

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
