To: 02 Aug 2019
Age 10+ - We all love a good story! Especially in Ireland - it’s in our DNA! Combine this with the amazing possibilities that modern technology enables and you have Digital Storytelling - or as we like to call it - DigiTales! Through a programme of collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, Createschool (creators of BRICKFLICKS) teach kids to make art and tell stories with mobile digital technology. They can share their stories, realise their ideas and gain lots of new skills in stop motion animation, digital music making, photography & video, podcasting and more. All materials and equipment are supplied (including iPads). For personal hygiene, we would ask participants to bring their own headphones.

Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite scepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.

Living in Glasgow, just released from a lengthy stint in jail and with two young kids, Rose has more immediate concerns to tackle, as her worried mother (Julie Walters) keeps reminding her. Forced to take responsibility, Rose-Lynn gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house.


Exhibition: Dissolving by the Worm Moon - Bassam Al-Sabah

From: 31 Aug 2019
To: 26 Oct 2019
Bassam Al-Sabah’s exhibition Dissolving by the Worm Moon will present new and existing works that convey visions of war, resistance, and perseverance. Using video, painting, and sculpture, Al-Sabah’s installations are concerned with how the past is constantly reviewed to meet the present. Examining the agendas and effects of children’s broadcasting in Iraq between 1970 to the present day, scenes of war and destruction are shown in parallel with fantasy and reality, the hero and the everyday, the make-believe and fact. As the juvenile fantasy breaks down into the veracity of adulthood, the links between violence, representation, and preservation are deconstructed.

CLASS

From: 15 Nov 2019
To: 15 Nov 2019
A parent-teacher meeting goes very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever. Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers. So are they going to trust this one? And should they? CLASS is an explosive triple confrontation in a classroom over learning difficulties, love and entitlement. Funny, heartbreaking and beautifully observed, with rave reviews and a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre, CLASS is new Irish writing at its finest.
