Rough Magic Theatre Company presents



Dates: 03 Dec - 05 Dec

Show Time: 6.15pm

Tickets: €11 - €9

I am the host. You are the guest. In this house there are unspoken rules, there are lines, there are boundaries. Amid these challenges, where is the physical point that two individual people can meet to form an understanding?

Unspoken is an exciting new collaboration between Composer/Sound Designer SEED Danny Forde and choreographer Aisling McCormick. Employing music and dance, Unspoken seeks dialogue amid potential conflict, exploring the body as it divides and unites; provokes and resolves.

Inspired by the Zambian philosophy of Pamodzi, oneness only occurs when we are together. Danny’s score, played by a live band, explores percussive rhythms, counter rhythms and vocal harmonies with bass clarinet.

Danny Forde’s recent credits as a composer include MONSTER/CLOCK (Collapsing Horse) and Lusmór (The Breakaway Project). Danny is one-third of the Irish-Scandinavian folk-pop band Karmacloud.

Aisling McCormick is a Dublin-based choreographer and dancer.

Rough Magic SEEDS programme is a two-year development programme for emerging theatre artists.

For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

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.…
