Spirit of the Fringe winners THEATREclub are back with a play that just might be about you and EVERYONE you know.

The Family is a play about your family.

Watch them fight, love and try to make dinner.

They will cry and stare as funds gets thinner.

BUT The Family love each other,

Cos after all, you can choose your friends….

Since the foundation of the State, the family was the bedrock of Irish society. At a time when the very fabric of the nation is being called into question, THEATREclub are making a play that explodes the idea of the contemporary Irish family, tearing up “An Teaghlaigh” to figure out where we go to from here.

A series of post show talks and discussions will accompany The Family. More information on the schedule of events and speakers here.

THEATREclub are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

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…
