What’s yer name? Where ya from? How many ya on?
Notes On Rave In Dublin is a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in our dirty old town. From the democratic romance of those early, loved-up dance floors to how a cold social stratification and commercialisation crept in, leaving it up to a network of outsider labels, pirates and ravers to establish an indigenous scene that we now call our own. This is a story of how an underground works, mutates and survives.
Having premiered at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival to huge acclaim, Notes on a Rave in Dublin is a brilliantly nostalgic look back at 90s Dublin cloaked in a vivid sense of hedonism.
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.
