“And we’re real fucking intelligent aren’t we? All mad smart after all of our M.Phils, M.Sci, M.A, M.Soc Sci, PHD bullshit. Jaeger bombs and fart jokes, the future of Ireland. Future of Ireland stuck in a pub making shit jokes…”

This fast paced, comic and unsettling one-man adventure sees our Lost Boy pulled apart by the voices inside his head. As Seán goes through the motions of a night out in town, what he says and what he thinks are in constant friction. Afraid to drop the facade, he fractures… with destructive consequences.

Irish Times Irish Theatre Award nominated writer Caitríona Daly makes her Project Arts Centre debut with PANNED following a sell-out run at Dublin’s Theatre Upstairs.

Performed with astonishing virtuosity by Ste Murray, directed with verve by Eoghan Carrick, PANNED is a play for our city’s lost boys and girls, speaking to our society’s unrealistic expectations and our battle for a place in a world smaller than our dreams.

My mind, mine, my problems, my ‘mental health’ it’s mine, not yours to put your fingers all over it, wouldn’t dig your claws into my cancer, dig your fingernails underneath my tumours, wouldn’t do it much good so why my mind” Panned
Join us after the matinee performance on Saturday 17th November for a post show discussion with the writer of Panned Caitríona Daly, writer Michael West and writer and theatre maker Una McKevitt. The discussion will focus on how our mental health has been represented on stage and how public attitudes and platforms have changed our views of this private space.

Michael West recently adapted Frankenstein for Theatre Lovett on the Peacock stage and Una McKevitt’s Madhouse written with PJ Gallagher was a hit at the 2018 Dublin Fringe Festival.

The conversation will be led by Panned director Eoghan Carrick. Performance at 2:30 Saturday 17th November.

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? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

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…
