About: Blank

This event has ended

Online, Thursday 30th September - Sunday 17th October

The world premier of a site-responsive, audio-immersive series of interconnected narratives you engage with on your phone and bring into the world around you.

about:blank is what appears when there is nothing else to display. It exists in the space between the internet and you. From here we depart.

Transported through fragments of Dublin, we find an émigré working in a charity shop, a missing cat, the internal chatter of a yoga session, a writer disagreeing with her characters and a couple discussing their absent daughter. Written as a circular mixture of narrative-poetry, prose, monologue and drama, and adapted into a site responsive and audio-immersive journey, about:blank begins in the cloud and ends where you live.

Note: It’s an audio performance, available ON DEMAND 30 – Sept – 17 Oct that you listen to on your phone or your laptop. A website link and passcode will be sent to your email. You will insert the passcode into the website and taken to where you press PLAY to hear the audio.

about:blank is a series of Dublin stories that are interconnected and explore themes of identity, loss and love – we hear about a person working in a charity shop, a missing cat, the internal chatter of a yoga session, a writer disagreeing with her characters and a couple discussing their absent daughter.

Utopia

National Concert Hall

In the uncharted territories ahead: What do you want? What happens next? We’ve navigated through the global crisis, and now we find ourselves among inadequate social structures, claustrophobic ways of life, and burned out rhythms. We also find people asking questions about how to embrace uncertainty and the unknown, to sort out the trajectories of their lives without knowing where the world is going. The only map we have for this new territory is what we want. The only option is utopia. Presented by Una Mullally and Conner Habib, in collaboration with the National Concert Hall and multipl
