What affects one directly, affects all indirectly
Martin Luther King
Following the success of Woman Stood Regardless (2014) and Ultima Thule (2016), Catherine Young Dance returns to Project with a powerful new dance work inspired by the experience of making work with refugees, asylum seekers and a journey to the Middle East. Young’s new work State of Exception takes us right to the heart of the necessity to reach across, connect and challenge the divides created by the State of Exception, to act, to make and to find home in the common that binds us all. This powerful new dance, featuring a cast of outstanding Irish and international performers delves into the world of ‘the other’ to try understand and tear down the walls and borders that divide.
A panel discussion will follow the Friday 23rd March performance of State of Exception at Project Arts Centre. Bryan Fanning, professor of Migration and Social Policy at UCD, will chair a discussion with Lucky Khambule, head of MASI – Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland, Vukasin Nedeljkovic of Asylum Archive and Donnah Sibanda Vuma, Place of Sanctuary scholar at UL.

The Charities Regulator has informed Project Arts Centre that the display of Maser’s ‘Repeal the 8th’ artwork is ‘political activity’ and that we are therefore in breach of the Charities Act 2009 and not in line with our ‘charitable purpose’. Should the artwork not be removed, we risk losing our charitable status. Project Arts Centre respects the authority of the Charities Regulator and will comply with their order to remove Maser’s artwork. Fiona Slevin, Chair of Project Arts Centre said: “The Board and executive of Project are conscious of their obligations…Read More

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…Read More
