Kind Words Spoken

‘Etchells' script is a masterpiece of precise observation and perfectly crafted musicality, moving subtly through love, amusement, anger, frustration and joy’. The Herald, Scotland

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.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. 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…
