Returning after an extended hiatus from the world of music, Irish songstress Naoise Roo invites you to join her for a night of art, music, theatre and spoken word at the Project Arts Centre on Saturday, 4th May 2019.

The evening will serve as an exclusive preview of Roo’s upcoming EP, ‘ Sick Girlfriend’. The sophomore offering is a four-track exploration of themes surrounding depression, the challenges of the music industry and the oppressive stereotypes that burden women experiencing mental illness. Roo will perform brand new unheard songs, plus much loved songs from her repertoire including tracks from her first album Lilith.

Accompanying her on stage will be the outfit that brought ‘Sick Girlfriend’ to life including bassist Daniel Fox (Girl Band), drummer Rian Trench , guitarist Karl Tobin and Jamie Hyland on synths. Naoise Roo will be joined by a catalogue of talented musicians, artists and performers who will present their own works also revolving around the theme of mental health and mental illness. Musical acts include Maija Sofia , Shrug Life’s Danny Carroll , singer Laura Ann Brady and more to be announced. Theatre actor Miriam Needham will perform a short work on mental health while artists Andrew Mooney and Roisín Blade will create an immersive visual experience in the venue.

The event is free of charge and supported by Dublin City Council with the specific aim of ensuring that art is accessible to all regardless of financial position. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
