  • The Blue Boy

    See more

    25th May 2012 (Fri) - 26th May 2012 (Sat)

    Project Arts Centre
    Following its success at Dublin Theatre Festival in 2011, The Blue Boy returns to Dublin. Urgent and vital, it deals with the experiences of men and women who were incarcerated as children in Catholic residential care institutions. The Blue Boy combines startling choreography with live music, recorded interviews, multi-media, and film to reveal stories of childhood abuse in Ireland. This compelling work evokes hidden violence and gives intense physical expression to the anguish experienced by those who were silenced - it is essential watching for our times. Contains material that some may find disturbing. Brokentalkers are members of Project Catalyst, Project Arts Centre's Associate Artist scheme. More

    The Everyman
    When published in 1942, 'The Tailor and Ansty' was banned by the Censorship Board after 3 days of heated debate in The Seanad for being "in its general tendency indecent". The Tailor was a seanchai (or storyteller) who entertained people at his fireplace with tales of life in the countryside and its peculiarities. The couple's house was a popular place for 'scoraiochting', where neighbours and friends would gather to talk, sing and pass the long evenings. The innocent couple was denounced from the altar in their local church, their cottage boycotted by neighbours and three priests came to their cottage in Gougane Barra and made The Tailor burn the book in his own fireplace. What offence could cause this tragedy? More
