IETM Dublin Public Performance Programme Announced

IETM Dublin

Public performance programme announced

Project Arts Centre presents a new season of work by some of Ireland’s best performing artists for IETM Dublin this April.

IETM Dublin hosted by Project Arts Centre

Project Arts Centre is delighted to announce a season of revivals and new performances by Irish artists this April. Programmed by Cian O’Brien, Artistic Director of Project Arts Centre, these events are part of the public programme of IETM Dublin, the Spring Plenary Meeting of the international network for contemporary performing arts, which will see 600 performing arts professionals from around the world descend on Dublin for four days of creative thinking and networking.

The programme includes a range of dance, theatre, performance art and music performances from some of Ireland’s leading artists. All performances in this programme are open to the public, access to the performance art programme is free and tickets to all other performances are priced at just €10.

Contemporary dance is represented by Liz Roche Company and John Scott Dance, two of Ireland’s most successful dance companies. Fast Portraits, by Liz Roche Company, explores the layers of emotion and memory that infuse captured images, inspired by the work of video artist Bill Viola. John Scott Dance presents Body Duet, a striking duet packed with passion, poetry, humour, artistry, grace, fun and vitality.

Theatre performances come from two internationally renowned Irish companies, Pan Pan Theatre and Brokentalkers. Pan Pan Theatre bring their award-winning production of All That Fall back to Dublin, recreating their atmospheric and intimate installation of  the Samuel Beckett radio play, experienced from the comfort of your very own rocking chair. Following its sell-out success at the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival, audiences have another chance to catch Brokentalkers’ latest show Have I No Mouth. This devised work features the company’s co-Artistic Director Feidlim Cannon, his mother Ann and their psychotherapist.  Created from the trio’s therapy sessions over the course of a year, the show explores the changing nature of the relationship between a mother and son in the aftermath of family tragedy.

Let the music do the talking, a unique gig created by performer, musician and theatre-maker Dylan Tighe, celebrates the contribution of a generation of musicians who have had a defining impact on Irish theatre and dance practice. Musicians performing at the event include Seán Mac Erlaine & Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Sean Millar, Trevor Knight & The Devil’s Spine Band, Tom Lane & Brian O’Connell, Dylan Tighe and Francesco Turrisi.

The season of work will also include a taste of the powerful performance art work being made in Ireland, with three new works by internationally renowned performance artists commissioned by the Project Arts Centre and Dublin City Council. May I draw your eyes? Is a one-on-one meditation on looking, in which artist Fergal Byrne draws upon visual art and literature to offer an experience of intimacy and intellect. Áine Phillips’ Spectral (my lake of eggs) is a live performance which recounts stories of self-destruction, institutional care and freedom in madness, with sound by composer Trevor Knight. In COUN?TER?PART artists Michelle Browne and Dominic Thorpe explore how two distinct performance practices find common ground in collaboration, drawing on the potential and the tension that exists in the relationship between the two performers.

The IETM Dublin public performance programme will run in Project Arts Centre, the Samuel Beckett Theatre and Smock Alley Theatre from 11 to 13 April 2013. All tickets are available from the Project Arts Centre Box Office on 01 8819 613.

IETM Dublin 2013 is an initiative of the Arts Council of Ireland in partnership with Culture Ireland, produced by Project Arts Centre and supported by Fáilte Ireland and Dublin City Council. It is part of both the Arts Council’s and Culture Ireland's Culture Programme to mark Ireland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
