ADMISSION FREE

We are delighted to announce that Czech artist Eva Koťátková’s Theatre of Speaking Objects will be running daily in our Cube theatre space until 14 February.

Theatre of Speaking Objects knits together extraordinary, poignant and personal accounts of complex relationships with language. Eva Koťátková has gathered stories and remembrances from around the world, and located them within a cast of used objects and therapeutic props, things that are used to speak for the subjects – subjects who sometimes cannot speak for themselves – becoming mediators and containers for human voices and personal stories.

Theatre of Speaking Objects runs daily from 11am – 8pm, and is predominantly performed in English. The characters range from an account of two brothers who communicate only in the third person, to an individual who compulsively rehearses daily conversations, to another who seems trapped in an extensive list of fears. Cumulatively, these voices reflect on social exclusion and isolation, at the same time giving life back to objects that are mute.

Eva Koťátková is joined by Dominik Lang to collaborate on Wasteland, a new exhibition for our gallery, opening on Thursday 6th February, 6-8pm.

Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang join Project Arts Centre in thanking the many individuals and organisations that have supported these projects, including the voices lent by Nyree Yergainharsian, Jose Miguel Jimenez, Robert McDermott, Cian O’Brien, Noelle Brown, Sarah Pierce and Hugo Byrne, Annette Devoy and Jasmin Maher. Further warm thanks to Christy Maher, Dublin City Council Eamonn Ceannt Park, Galerie Hunt Kastner in Prague, and to the generosity of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in providing a Production Residency for Koťátková and Lang during their time in Dublin.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
