THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD

Dates: 16 Dec - 16 Dec

Tickets: €20

In Chinese and with an all Chinese cast The Playboy of the Western World opened in China’s premier venue, The Beijing Oriental Pioneer Theatre, in March 2006.

This exciting production is an innovative and unique event drawing on the counterpoints of an Irish story and contemporary urban Chinese culture. This version of Playboy has been transposed to a modern setting of a hairdresser’s and foot massage parlour in the old part of Beijing. The normal business of hairdressing takes place out front but there are other less mundane activities happening elsewhere on the premises.

Performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.

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…
