Science Gallery Dublin – Treat Me Right

Science Gallery Dublin, Friday 7th December 2018

The feeling of a stranger washing your hair. Or putting their hand to the place where the pain is. The physical intimacies of medical, therapeutic or beauty treatments can be tiny moments of pleasure, awkwardness, relief or discomfort in our everyday lives. What is it that makes those experiences so particular? And what if we could create similar experiences in a different setting?

Join us in the FOR PLAY gallery for a discussion and creative workshop on physical touch and the intimacy of professional treatments, exploring psychological, neuroscientific and personal perspectives. With Vanya Eccles and Joan Somers Donnelly.

Please note this event is only suitable for visitors aged 18+

The Cripple of Inishmaan

Gaiety Theatre

Martin McDonagh's work is known and loved by both theatre and film audiences alike. The Cripple of Inishmaan is set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan (Inis Meáin), off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, where the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore (Inis Mór) to make a documentary about life on the islands. 'Cripple' Billy Claven, eager to escape the gossip, poverty and boredom of Inishmaan, vies for a part in the film and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance… or so some believe.

This is What Happened

Civic Theatre

Did your dad ever give you lollipops for good behaviour? Would you like me to give you a lollipop now? Would you give me a lollipop now? A trippy triptych of verbal warfare, media spin, and shocking talk-show showdowns. Disarming and alarming This Is What Happened is an unflinching interrogation of objectification. Presented by the highly acclaimed Civic Theatre Company Theatre in Residence, The Corps Ensemble in collaboration with one of The Civic's Associate Artists for 2019: award-winning poet and one of Ireland's most provocative emerging playwrights, Adam Wyeth.
