FORCED ENTERTAINMENT

VOID STORY Follow a beleaguered pair of protagonists on a hapless journey packed with the blackest humour. Navigating one terrible cityscape after another, mugged, shot at, bitten by insects, and stowed away in refrigerated transport, they travel to the centre of a night so intense that there are no stars to be seen. Void Story is performed as a radio play and amidst the live dialogue, a storyboard of projected images and recorded sound effects, an unsettling story emerges from the cracks. Pioneers of British avant-garde performance Forced Entertainment return to Project Arts Centre with their unique brand of theatre. Distinctive and provocative a delightful disruption of conventional theatre - expect the unexpected and a live experience you’ll never forget. ‘Somewhere in my head they are still running, and I'm keeping them alive through force of will.’ The Guardian

There will be a post show discussion following the performance on 13 January. REAL DEAL – FIRST 30 SEATS FOR EACH PERFORMANCE ONLY €15! DEVISED BY FORCED ENTERTAINMENT DIRECTED BY TIM ETCHELLS CAST: ROBIN ARTHUR, RICHARD LOWDON, CATHY NADEN, AND TERRY O’CONNOR.

MUSICAL THEATRE (WORK IN PROGRESS)

THISISPOPBABY

ALICE IN FUNDERLAND Unlucky in love, Corkonian Alice is all set for her sister's wedding when a chance encounter with a delivery boy sends her spiraling through the streets of Dublin. In an epic chase for love on the strangest night of her life, Alice tumbles through the dark, bombarded by grinning politicians, pyjama clad bowsies, egg heads on the edge, the self help mafia, and of course, Delores - The Queen of Hartstown. Things sure ain't what they used to be. The looking glass is well and truly cracked. But is true love possible on the other side… or is this town just full of clowns? A modern day fairy tale for the electropop generation, this work in progress presentation is packed with explosive tunes, unforgettable characters and crackling action. THISISPOPBABY are part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre. Suitable ages 16+

BENBO PRODUCTIONS

THE CAMBRIA It was the start of an eventful journey. The Cambria was a trans-Atlantic paddlesteamer. In 1845, among her passengers out of Boston was escaped AfricanAmerican slave, Frederick Douglass. His just-published life story had become a best-seller. With a price placed on his head by slave-holders he was forced to flee the US and headed for Ireland. The Cambria tells the story of how Douglass survived an attempt on his life, and went on to become what Abraham Lincoln called “the most impressive man I ever met”. ‘Entertaining, thought provoking and beautifully crafted…’ Fintan O’Toole – THE IRISH TIMES ‘With The Cambria Donal O'Kelly steps to the frontline of contemporary Irish playwrights… Fox is one of the most impressive Irish actors this reviewer has ever seen’.

DUBLIN YOUTH THEATRE

BATSH*T An uncompromising, unflinchingly honest look at the darker side of Irish youth, written and performed by a cast of young people Tired of reading about their peers suffering in silence they’re taking things into their own hands. They’ve written their own songs and are telling stories that are relevant to them – a no holds barred commentary on the pressures of life and what can happen when the pressure gets too much. Batsh*t is an original and twisted take on Büchner’s classic unfinished play Woyzeck, exploring mental health issues, social hierarchy and the acts of violence that young people under pressure can be driven to.

FOUR TOLD What in the world, if anything, is truly ours? Four dancers, four histories, four stories, woven in to one. Our histories are a series of repeated stories of varying levels of truth and every event can be viewed from as many angles as there are witnesses. Four dancers seize and release control to weave together an intricate tapestry of movement, uncovering a unique exploration of ownership and identity. Each dancer surrenders to a rich tale told by four. Four of Ireland's leading dancers Emma O’Kane, Katherine O’Malley, Lisa McLoughlin and Rebecca Reilly have been invited to take part in PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre. For their debut collaboration all of them will assume the roles of both choreographer and performer to create an exciting new dance piece.

Step inside the boxing ring - smell it, sense it, feel it and, somewhere between the fights and the fortune tellers, the bookies and the bloodshed, rub shoulders with its wayward wards. Set in rural Ireland in the early 60s Lay Me Down Softly is a dangerous story told with a darkly comic wit – a mythic tale of love, loss and pain that proves that life on the road is tough. When young runaway Emer arrives in search of her long lost father and a challenge from a professional boxer is thrown in to the ring everything in this run down side show is about to change forever. Suitable ages 14+, contains strong language and some scenes of a violent nature

UNIVERSITY COLLEGE DUBLIN

ATTEMPTS ON HER LIFE & DIRECTIONS 7 Attempts on her Life journeys through seventeen distinct but interconnected scenarios, as a group of unnamed characters try to piece together the identity of the mysterious Anne. She's a terrorist threat, she's a mother of three, She's a cheap cigarette, she is ecstacy, …She drives a tank over neonates, while choosing to bank, at competitive rates… …She's an artificial tan, she's the fat in the pan, She's the film in the can, she's the shit in the fan

Consumerised, commodified, objectified - a globalised phenomenon, is Anne the ultimate post-modern heroine? “…driven by a radical contempt for the new global capitalism and its attempt to turn us all into depersonalised consumers… it is an act of theatre propelled by moral fervour.“ The Guardian on Attempts on her Life

To accompany Attempts on her Life the students of the MA in Directing for Theatre at UCD will also present DIRECTIONS 7, a series of short pieces performed at 1.00pm on 16,18 & 19 Mar. Tickets €8.

Key (smart) is the swarthy bard from Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe and the pretty question master from We Need Answers (BBC4). “He’s a genius, plain and simple” Time Out. “In any other sphere apart from comedy, we’d probably class this way of looking at the world as certifiable. Here it feels like genius” The Telegraph. “An indefinably crackers hour” The Independent.

Image: Joe O’Neill

VISUAL ARTS

SARAH BROWNE HOW TO USE FOOL’S GOLD 5 MAY – 25 JUNE 2011 Sarah Browne has been commissioned to make a new work as part of Project Arts Centre’s CATALYST programme. Browne is developing an exhibition that focuses on ideas of trade, the raw material as value system, and a small town in France called Le Blanc, where locals still accept the franc as their monetary system of exchange. Sarah Browne has been supported by an Arts Council New Work Award. This exhibition will later travel to become part of solo exhibitions at IKON Birmingham and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver.

GEOFFREY FARMER & JEREMY MILLAR 7 JULY – 27 AUGUST 2011 Geoffrey Farmer (Canada) and Jeremy Millar (UK) have been commissioned to make a new, collaborative exhibition. This will be the first time the two artists have worked together, and will be an exhibition closely informed by the nature of Project Arts Centre – theatre, visual arts, and the narrative possibilities between the two.

ADRIA JULIA NOTES ON THE MISSING OH 6 SEPTEMBER – 26 NOVEMBER 2011 Adria Julia will be presenting the large-scale film installation Notes on the Missing Oh at Project Arts Centre during Dublin Contemporary 2011, which we will be supporting and partnering during Dublin’s inaugural city-wide, two month long international exhibition.

WHAT BEING PART OF PROJECT CATALYST MEANS TO ME BY ANNABELLE COMYN (HATCH THEATRE COMPANY) Project Arts Centre is the foundation on which I have made a career in Ireland. I returned home eight years ago, having worked as a director in London for nearly a decade. With my return came the inevitable challenge of establishing myself as a director here in Dublin. Artistic Director Willie White, was instantly respectful of my previous work, open to my ideas and challenging of my aims. In fact the whole team at Project Arts Centre has been instrumental in the development of my career and in the setting up of my company, HATCH. We have collaborated now for seven years, producing contemporary writing that is challenging, inspiring and reflective of our modern experience. This investment has paid off in the increasing recognition for my work. In each of the last two years HATCH’s productions have been nominated in The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards. I am also looking forward to making my directing debut on the Abbey’s main stage, directing George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion next spring. My consistent striving to produce work of the highest quality has been helped by Project Arts Centre in many practical as well as artistic ways; running payroll, writing contracts, drafting budgets, organising audits and creating publicity and marketing campaigns that reflect the needs of each production. All of this support enables me to focus my attention on the artistic work. Project Arts Centre always strives to meet my growing and changing needs as a theatre director. It is a home that nurtures confidence and inspires creativity, spawning a family of engaged artists. I am thrilled to be Project Arts Centre’s Artist in Residence for 2011, supported by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council. I will be spending the residency time researching future productions, leading workshops and facilitating public engagement with the centre’s programme. This will be an incredible opportunity for me to develop and to share my practice yet its potential can only be fully realised with the unerring dedication and hard work that I know I can rely on from the organisation. Project Arts Centre is a tireless advocate for artists and understands how central they are to its success. I am proud to be a PROJECT CATALYST.
