Peter: Forget them, Wendy. Forget them all. Come with me where you’ll never, never have to worry about grown up things again.

Wendy: Never is an awfully long time.

Choreographed by Anna Gaciarz, PETER PANS explores the syndrome of the same name, a generation of people who don’t want to grow up and who find it difficult to express love. Peter Pans – people with the body of an adult but the mind of a child…

Through movement and music we see human connections, how they are made, burn brightly, fall apart or just fade.

This debut performance by a physical theatre company, comprises of 3 male and 3 female performers with wildly different back-stories, complimentary skills and a tendency to crack up at tender, ‘sensitive’ moments. They are from Poland, Ireland and Uzbekistan. They are dancers (and stilt-walkers), office workers and visual artists; a certain generation of people who don’t want to grow up; a generation of Peter Pans.



Piotrus: Zapomnij o nich, Wendy! Zapomnij o nich wszystkich! Polec ze mna, a juz nigdy… przenigdy nie bedziesz musiala sie martwic dorastaniem…

Wendy: Nigdy to musi byc nieznosnie dlugi czas.

“PIOTRUS PAN” i “wieczna dziewczynka” to symbole niedojrzalosci naszych czasow. Nieodpowiedzialni, ciagle bujajacy w oblokach, pragnacy zabawy, zgorzkniale dzieci. Wystarczy im imitowanie wzorcow banalnej kultury, sa zadowoleni, jesli moga przezyc jakas ekstremalna przygode czy spontanicznie gdzies wyjechac. Nie mysla o przyszlosci, nie zadaja pytan, wola wieczna zabawe i zycie chwila. Boja sie realnego “tu i teraz”, unikaja zwiazkow i sytuacji, z ktorych trudno im sie bedzie uwolnic.

Wyobraz sobie eksperymentalna grupe teatralna i szesciu ludzi o calkiem roznych zapleczach artystycznych, a jednak uzupelniajacych sie w kluczowych momentach. Sa z Polski, z Irlandii i Uzbekistanu. Spotkali sie D-light Studios w Dublinie, miejscu tetniacym kulturalnym zyciem. Od razu znalezli swoja niesamowita „chemie”. Powstal zespol zlozony w polowie z mezczyzn, w polowie z kobiet – 50% Male Experimental Theatre. “Peter Pans” jest pierwszym owocem ich wspolpracy, kombinacja teatru fizycznego i technik tanca wspolczesnego.

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…
