Kind Words Spoken

“…funny, sharp, relevant and delivered with panache” Una Mullally, The Irish Times “An Easter Rising / Wikileaks mash up … the bang-on zeitgeistsy script is backed up by excellent use of live technology, and a completely believable spiralling chain of events.” Susan Conley, Irish Theatre Magazine

Daisy is an unwitting internet celebrity, the ‘Psycho Chugger’ whose video currently has 178, 234 views on Youtube – it is ruining her life.

Alan, a blogger by the name of Generalissimo Malaise who claims to target the ‘everyday arsehole’, is the one who made it.

And Chris, well he just got caught in the crossfire.

There will be casualties when a nasty game of one-upmanship descends into a relentless war. War Of Attrition is a destructively comic thriller that takes you from parties on the streets of Dublin to the darkest parts of the internet where revolution is brewing.

Devious Theatre Company was founded in Kilkenny in 2006. The company works across a number of genres but stays rooted in a style of comedy that it has developed over the years. In 2011 they became the first theatre artists in residence in Kilkenny Arts Office and have also won a PPI Award for Radio Drama. Their work has featured at Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Galway Theatre Festival among others and they previously presented work at Project Arts Centre as part of  TEXT | Messages and The Theatre Machine Turns you On.

War Of Attrition was first performed as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2013 where it received four star reviews and a Fringe Award nomination for Best Female Performer. A successful run at Galway Theatre Festival in October 2013 followed.

For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it. We miss artists making their work in our spaces and audiences making a journey through the building to see that work and we miss being together…

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.…
