THE PLACE OF THE GRAVE: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 07 Aug - 07 Aug

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Krõõt Juurak

Dive Bar events are always free. Capacity is limited to 50 people, with places given on a first come, first served basis.

On this evening, choreographer Krõõt Juurak will present her lecture The Place of the Grave, in collaboration with Alex Bailey. Somewhere between the deeply engaging and the uncomfortably real, Krõõt’s delivery is that of the stand-offish stand-up tragi-comic. This lecture explores notions of disappearance, expectancy, and the duty of memory with regard to modesty. Cheap Shots will be served from the bar, at the knockdown price of €3. Krõõt’s performance is kindly supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

This event is running as part of the exhibition The Centre For Dying On Stage #1, curated by Kate Strain. Every Thursday a recurring Dive Bar will transform the gallery into an informal social space for performance, exchange and encounter.

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.…
