Space Upstairs

By John Scott Dance (formerly Irish Modern Dance Theatre)


Outsider is like being at a party – at the moment when you feel you’re all by yourself, you break away from the group, but, somehow, still have that party vibe.

A thrilling mix of dance influences: displaying the artistry and virtuosity of four of Ireland’s best dancers: Philip Connaughton, Liv O’Donoghue, Ryan O’Neill and Rebecca Reilly and the relationship between music and dance.

Kyle Abraham creates Outsider for John Scott’s Irish Modern Dance Theatre. Outsider shares the programme with Kyle Abraham dancing two astonishing sensual and athletic solos

Kyle Abraham Dances Live! The Realist MC (solo excerpt) re-imagines the Walt Disney classic, Pinocchio, in an urban environment. Inspired by the duality of Pinocchio’s plight to be a “real boy”, Live! Investigates gender roles in the black community and societal perspectives of a character’s quest for acceptance in the world of hip hop celebrity.

Kyle Abraham also dances a new solo, using a hybrid of various forms of Contemporary dance and social dance influences: he was heavily involved in rave culture growing up. This dance spans his history making solos, not thinking about what genre he is moving in but finding a nice fluidity and blend when he hits the stage.

Kyle Abraham comes direct from premiering new works for ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATRE and HARLEM STAGE, New York. One of America’s most outstanding Choreographers and dancers, called “equal parts power and grace” by Dance Magazine, winner of a coveted New York’s ‘BESSIE’ dance award and a Princess Grace Dance Award.

John Scott’s imdt return to Dublin following sold-out show and tours of Body Duet, Actions, maKe, i mean, and Fall and Recover in New York, Paris, Zagreb, Avignon, Mexico, Kilkenny Arts Festival, ABSOLUT Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Dublin Dance Festival.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

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…
