That Night Follows Day: A Rehearsed Reading

Dates: 15 Jun - 15 Jun

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €0 (Free admission, booking required)

Forced Entertainment, producers of some of the most exciting and challenging theatre today, are coming to Project Arts Centre for The Ark’s Right Here, Right Now! a festival of children.

Working with a cast of eight to fourteen year olds, The Ark and Project Arts Centre present a rehearsed reading of Tim Etchells’ text That Night Follows Day. A funny, provocative and beautifully poetic piece that exposes the facts, fibs and excuses adults make up for children.

Performed by children, for adults, it invites us to take a playful look at the way we project our world onto those around us. With alarming clarity and humour, the children reveal the ways in which we are all constrained and created by the words we hear.

You feed us.
You dress us.
You watch us when we are sleeping.
You lay down the law.
You explain that night follows day.

Forced Entertainment’s renowned artistic director and writer Tim Etchells has seen his work exhibited internationally. This is the first time a rehearsed reading of his text will be created and presented in Ireland.

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…

Future Forecast Online

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…
