THE SMELL OF WANT
The Smell of Want is a new dance theatre performance from Fitzgerald and Stapleton. Graphically honest, deeply-affecting and often darkly funny the work unfolds through a series of provocative short speeches and choreographed scenes which invite us to rethink our relationship to the boundaries between life and art.
Check your budget and chose from a luxury seat in the Winners Enclosure (only seven available per show, €17), an averagely comfy Plebeian seat (€15), a bog standard bench in Steerage (€13.50/€12 conc) or ask Box Office about the Lovers’ Swing (€15 per couple) for an extra special trip.
Suitable ages 16+, may contain nudity.
Audience members may be asked to leave at any point during the performance.
“Cutting edge theatre…” The Sunday Times on Fitzgerald & Stapleton
Review of The Smell of Want
“A darkly comic exploration of the cycle of life and death, time travel, dreams, songs, consumerism and more” Time Out New York
Read the full Time Out review here.
“These smart, sophisticated movers are adept at a fluid physical navigation in which the body can be task-oriented or sexually objectified or whatever is behind Door No. 3” The New York Times
“With flesh that is neither proud nor wounded butlike a sleeper sensing the lover or cat lying beside herblurrily conscious of being unconscious. The Smell of Want is eerily, achingly homey. It seems to arise from a slumbering body, with that breath and heat, and light out for the mind.” The Village Voice NY

“The audience didnt move for several minutes after the performers had gone; we were getting over that shock the utter exposure of being offered nakedness through and through” danceviewtimes NY
“It was a very abstract and intimate experience..Trust me, it sounds crazy, but you’ll love it” Gayletter NY
There will be a post show discussion on Mon 7 and Wed 9 Nov 2011.

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.…Read More

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…Read More
