Scorch by Stacey Gregg is inspired by recent court cases dealing with gender fraud and gender politics.
A story of first love through the eyes of a gender-curious teen, Scorch examines how the human story often gets lost amidst the headlines.
This play is a new original work from Belfast playwright Stacey Gregg. It confronts ideological norms, which have for so long shaped our understanding and beliefs surrounding sexuality and gender.
Set in the round, Scorch explores the story of a teenager called Kes who is struggling with their gender identity. Kes explores their sexuality and gender by presenting as a boy who embarks on an intimate relationship with another girl, which leads to devastating effects both legally and personally.

To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…Read More
