Fat Blokes: Dinner Debate

Project Arts Centre, Tuesday 15th January 2019

Scottee has made a new (sort of) dance show about fat bodies showing at Project Arts Centre in February. In the run up, he is inviting you over for tea, a gossip and a think – a chance for us to get together to discuss body politics, fatness and what some people on Instagram are calling ‘body positivity'.

  • Why do we worry about how the world perceives us?
  • Why are fat people considered a public enemy?
  • Who polices our bodies and why?
  • Will everything be solved with just one more Dove advert?

Join Scottee for an evening of debate and free pizza – ask questions, contribute to the debate or just listen.

The Ark

The Ark presents the world premiere of a brand new theatre show created especially for children aged 8+. How far down is yesterday? On the edge of a town, in the middle of a bog, half way between a school and a housing estate, Rayy and Jo have come to dig a hole. Peat is the story of the things they bury, and the things they find. With lightness and humour, this new play for children asks big questions about life, death, time and history. A conversation between two 11-year olds who find themselves standing on top of everything that has ever happened, it is a story of friendship, loss, an

Irish National Opera Presents Madama Butterfly

BGE Theatre

Madama Butterfly takes us on the emotional journey of a devoted young Asian woman as she faces the truth about Pinkerton, the US navy lieutenant she marries. Sound advice from her maid, Suzuki, and the American consul, Sharpless, falls on deaf ears. The worldly-wise Pinkerton sets up house with Butterfly. But he deserts her, leaving her isolated from family and friends. Puccini's orientally-tinged and compassionate score includes the famous Humming Chorus and the rose-tinted expectation of the aria Un bel dì. Butterfly holds on to hope as she longs for the "one fine day" on which her departed
