Project Arts Centre presents



Dates: 15 May - 16 May

Show Time: 8:00pm

Tickets: €15 - €13


Presented by Dublin Dance Festival


These three young women offer a fresh take on dance from around Europe, and closer to home.

Black is a humorous piece about making things appear. Using only words and movements, Edvardsen succeeds in conjuring an entire domestic scene – pot plant, pet dog, and all – on a bare stage.

Prompted Breathless weaves an intricate web of instinctive and evocative movement from the real-life memories of four dancers. Intimate and delicate, this extract of O’Donoghue’s most recent group work questions what it is that makes us human.

In NOTHING for body, the body is the stage, the fingers and toes are dancers. Through the space that Baek builds with her body, you can see the minute expression of hands and feet as if they were beings in their own right. NOTHING for body is presented as part of Aerowaves, a European network that provides showcasing opportunities for emerging choreographers; and is supported by the Goethe Institut, Dublin.

Mette Edvardsen’s performance is supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy.

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…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
