Project Arts Centre presents

Performance

SNAP

Dates: 05 Dec - 05 Dec

Tickets: €14

Written by Ger Bourke

Directed by Pat Kiernan

With Kevin Flood and Marie Hastings

Snap is set on the outskirts of a rural Irish town and covers the married life of Sonny and Nonnie, spanning 50 years from 1950 to the present day. Two elderly actors play multi-roles, including their children and members of the local community, until we are left with just Sonny and Nonnie and the reality of their isolated existence. It is a portrayal of “life as it is” for many unheard voices trapped in the cycle of social and domestic violence. Moving from hilarious fun at times to poignant sadness, Snap succeeds in giving us one distinct and individual view of Ireland.

Snap by Ger Bourke opens in a disused IAWS Warehouse on Cork’s Albert Quay on September 22nd before transferring to Project as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival in October.

Ger Bourke was the winner of the 2000 Corcadorca Playwright Award for his play “Banshee Makers” which was produced by the company and attracted critical acclaim with The Irish Theatre Magazine commenting that “Corcadorca succeeded in bringing a confident and engaging new voice to Irish audiences.”

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?

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…
