Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 03 May - 03 May

Show Time: 8:15pm

Tickets: €12 - €10



What happens when you take traditional Irish music and add some of Ireland’s most exciting contemporary musicians and their usual instruments?

Five musicians will take up residence in the Cube for one week of musical experimentation culminating in a night of performance.

Palimpsest will bring together an unusual group of performers all hailing from very different backgrounds but with a shared interest in exploring the new possibilities inherent in traditional Irish tunes. Over the course of the week they will shed a contemporary light on our musical heritage with their unique approach and combined styles of playing.

Made possible with funding from the Arts Council Project Awards

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
