Kind Words Spoken

“…a carefully constructed and impeccably performed investigation into partnerships where the dancers seek equilibrium within shifting personal dynamics.“ The Irish Times “… it rises through a graceful arc and explodes. These dancers were never going to fall, or let the audience down. 'Wunderbar' soars in the memory long after the audience has crashed back to earth.” Stephen D'Arcy Collins, Dublin Dance Festival)

What happens when equilibrium shifts, do we adapt or do we fall apart?

Two dancers struggle with competing needs for power and companionship, independence and understanding in a light-hearted and energetic duet.

Performed to a live score by Irene Buckley, Wunderbar explores the conditions of harmony and conflict in relationships, testing the ideal of striving for stability.

Wunderbar was first performed as a 15 minute extract at Dublin Dance Festival in May 2014, was developed into a full-length show which premiered at Firkin Crane in September 2014 and has since been performed at Dance Live, Aberdeen.

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?

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…
