Talks and Readings

Town Hall Session curated by Emma Dabiri & Willie White

Dates: 21 Mar - 21 Mar

Show Time: 3pm

Tickets: €6

Future Dublin Now.
What do we need to do right now to create the future that we want and need?
Taking a cue from black feminism, which has given us by now mainstream concepts such as intersectionality and #metoo, this Town Hall Session explores futurity — the power to imagine beyond current fact and envisage that which is not, but must be.

This session will gather together not-your-usual crew of Dubliners who will make their pitch on how to liberate this city. Expect provocation, humour and stories of a Dublin you may not have seen before. The alternative city council is in session!

Led by Irish writer Emma Dabiri, author of the bestselling Don’t Touch My Hair — a ground-breaking study of how black hairstyling culture can be understood as an allegory for black oppression and ultimately, liberation, and Willie White, curator of Where We Live’s Town Hall Sessions in 2018. Full line-up to be announced.

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,…
