“Magnificently stimulating and thought-provoking theatre in an equally devastating setting. Not to be missed.” Sunday Independent

Pan Pan Theatre Company as part of Dublin Theatre Festival presents

Theatre

THE SEAGULL AND OTHER BIRDS

Dates: 25 Sep - 05 Oct

Show Time: Various times

Tickets: €15-25

A roller coaster re-imagining of Anton Chekhov’s much-loved comic masterpiece.

The Seagull and Other Birds is centred around a concise new version of The Seagull integrated with a number of specially commissioned works. Through the wormhole of the new work, Chekhov’s characters find themselves in extraordinarily different contexts: classic plays, TV shows, YouTube and stuff they’ve just made up.

The result is playful and uncompromising – expect lots of talk about art, some action, and tons of love.

Creators of The Rehearsal, Playing the Dane and Everyone Is King Lear In His Own Home, Pan Pan Theatre continue to explore and document wholly original ways to experience and experiment with theatre.

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…
