Even before we enter the theatre, our imagination is at work, anticipating what is to come. We are already doing so reading this text.

We encounter the stage as an empty space – a blank canvas for artists to create and audiences to imagine. This potential is usually celebrated, but not by Iggy Lond Malmborg. For him, this anxiety-making emptiness must be filled with something. He fills the void with fantastical theatre magic, bringing the audience to the unknown and dark corners of the imagination where this performance takes place.

This is the crux of the piece – the power of our imagination and its ability to traverse the barrier between good and evil, to challenge the laws of physics and to protect us from inexplicable inconsistencies of life. At the same time, fantasy is at the very foundation of xenophobia and the power structures inherent in language. Physics and Phantasma is a study in the artist’s relationship with an audience, and the space in between.

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.…
