Five performers on a bare stage strike a deceptively simple tableau. While they struggle physically to hold it together for the next 67 minutes, our perception of what the theatre is and what it means to be an audience is constantly challenged.

Often hilarious and always stimulating. While We Were Holding It Together continuously provokes shifts in our thinking and makes us question what it is we are seeing: Is it a rock band on tour? A family picnicking in a forest? Or is it something more sinister altogether? We look and reinvent, while searching for what is hidden and for what we want to see. In 2007 Ivana Muller was awarded with the Charlotte Kouhler Prize, and While We Were Holding It Together won the internationally renowned Festival Impulse’s first prize for the best off-theatre production, as well as the prize of the Goethe Institute. Performed in English. ‘The piece is ingeniously constructed and despite the serious approach the performance bears an exceptional and comical lightness.’

To try to stay connected to as many of our…

In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally   This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…
