Children of the Sun

Abbey Theatre

In April, Hilary Fannin’s radical adaptation of Maxim Gorky’s Children of the Sun will premiere on the Abbey Theatre stage. Augusta Gregory and Maxim Gorky wrote at a time of profound political change from different corners of Europe. Our mutual history is rooted in those events and their aftermath, in the troubled century that brings us to the present. Children of the Sun is the story of how a small family, their collection of friends and one eccentric stranger distract, entertain and enrage each other at a moment of crisis. Meanwhile, unseen beyond their fragile walls, their world

The List and the Line

Casino Marino

The List and the Line with Anne Phelan and Mark Swords brings together two very different art practices in a site specific and responsive installation at Casino Marino. Both artists interconnect conflicting histories through the act of making — with complex collage paintings, layered Joly screen photographs, text works, assemblages and sculptures. The personal is thrown together with the national, consumerism is jumbled with colonialism, visual narratives tumble into abstraction, and pleasure is maybe more pizza box than portico perfection. The Casino is not denounced in our time as a mon

Irish Famine Exhibition

Irish Famine Exhibition

The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word 'Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the 'Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. This Exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. W
