What happens when you discover online footage of your long-dead grandfather? You remember. You forget that you’ve forgotten.
Time is such a strange thing, so mercurial. Is time just an illusion? A magic trick to stop everything happening at once?
Part ode to the lighthouse keeper, part meditation on how we archive and curate our lives. Weaving from lecture theatre to physical theatre, ex-television presenter Caitríona Ní Mhurchú explores the nature of time itself.
Some of Ireland’s funniest transgender folks take the mic for two nights of standup. Occasionally dark, usually silly, often irreverent and always joyously defiant, these comics will have you falling out of your seats as they take a sledgehammer to the comedy establishment.
Allie O’Rourke, Felix O’Connor, MJ Stokes and Neil Farrell are generously offering stage time to a cisgender comedian each night — Ian Lynam and Brian Cheatle — because you should never be ashamed to offer a helping hand to those who find it hard to make it in this business!
Rosa Tralee’s eagerly anticipated debut novel explores one island, split into two jurisdictions, grappling with a third modernity.
An Orwell for the OnlyFans generation, Tralee tells queer, human stories from the coalface of data mining. Expect facial recognition beauty tutorials, personalised propaganda, and an artificial intelligentsia. Streaming clips from their upcoming miniseries, this wunderkind of world-building will examine the old lies which must be discarded and the new myths which must be told in order to forge our digital destiny.
When the man of her dreams, a professional cyclist, leaves E, she plummets into a black hole of heartbreak at the speed of a dopedup team on the Tour de France.
A one-woman show about heartbreak, madness and how condiments are the ultimate coping mechanism, by awardwinning playwright and performer Eva O’Connor, directed by Hildegard Ryan.
A music project inspired by the swung songs that gates often sing as they swing open and closed.
The nine-track album was made entirely from field recordings of gates on Inishturk and explores themes of loss, solitude and echoes of the island and surrounding sea.
Composer and musician Simon Cullen (Ships), performs a live interpretation of this work for the first time in a one-off immersive show in the serene surrounds of the Chapel Royal. Let him transport you to a remote land and seascape off the coast of Co. Mayo.
