Eamonn Doyle, Niall Sweeney, David Donohoe
Dates: 7-18 March
Made In Dublin is an immersive installation, in sound and vision, constructed as an infinitely unravelling coil of events played out by the movement of people caught up in time and place. And that place is Dublin.
Built around Doyle’s photography, with drawings and sound by Sweeney and Donohoe, Made in Dublin is a choreography of the city itself, its fabric, populations and light, its body and its psyche — their combined forces continuously shaping and wearing away at the autonomy of the other. Like needles on a record, individual journeys are compacted repetitively into the same streets.
Fragmented, labyrinthine, braced against the light, as if the frames from many consecutive films had cut loose from their spools… yet all now together, flickering forward in their own time, Made In Dublin reveals a city whose concrete is as plastic as the movement of its inhabitants.
WHERE WE LIVE is a ferocious response to the theme of home. It’s a kaleidoscope of stories about what it feels like to live in Dublin and Ireland today, told by some of the best storytellers on the island.
A programme of commissioned theatre pieces, work-in progress showings, dangerous ideas, live art and an exhibition.
We’re taking over the Complex in Smithfield for two weeks to tell funny, devastating, exhilarating and joyous stories that imagine and re-imagine what our city and country could be. We’re creating a TownHall, where discussion should be heated, performance will be red hot, and where opposing views are encouraged.
