Project Brand New is an initiative for the performing arts at Project Arts Centre curated by Róise Goan, Louise Lowe, Jody O’Neill and Deirdre Roycroft. It exists to provide a framework for theatre, dance, music and live art practitioners to develop new work for the stage outside the traditional production model. We are offering you the opportunity to put new ideas into practice at a developmental stage in an informal environment. At the heart of this project is the ambition to provide a platform for innovation and experimentation, and work that strives towards the new. Project Brand New serves as a springboard to push you, as artist and spectator, in new directions. In March 2008, 13 pieces across many art-forms were shown as part of Project Brand New’s sell-out debut season. Their success depended on the enthusiasm of an adventurous audience, and the passion of over 60 participating artists. We are delighted to present the next season of Project Brand New and we’re dying to know what you will make. Come along and find out.
