Project Arts Centre presents

Performance

TROPEA

Dates: 17 Sep - 14 Jan

Tickets: €10

Dancers in the mindless hands of bickering channel surfers. From a back stage screen two elderly “couch potatoes” zap from programme to programme, vainly searching to settle on something to stave off their boredom. From football to commercials, graphic news to trite talk shows, love stories to fictional horror their choices collide in an antagonistic personal duel. At the command of the remote control four dancers take on the life of the programmes, switching this way and that with lightning virtuosity and great technical skill. This is a playful, ironic comment on the real and the virtual.

Helene Weinzierl danced for Rosas, Bruno Genty and Robert Bexler before founding Compagnie Laroque in 1995.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

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.…
