Live Collisions – Preview

Live Collisions

Live Collision is one of those festivals with more odd ball events in four days that you’d get in the rest of the year combined! It has an emphasis on performance art and theatre, but really you get the feeling that anything can happen, and that’s part of the fun of it!

We’ve had a look through the programme and there are some tips, but really you should have a look for yourself, on their website here.

Live Collision International Festival is for the culturally curious and a curious culture; blurring the edges of the performance space between the real and the imagined, between the private and the public throughout the city…

Dates: 23 – 26 April 2014

Venues – Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar Gallery, Science Gallery and other events around the city!

Web Site – Live Collisions

I’ll sing you a song from around the town – Cube, Project Arts Centre – 26 April –  16:00-20:00 (Free)

BAFTA nominated artists Blast Theory, whose free work “Dial Ulrike and Eamon Compliant”, can be accessed 24 hours a day, exclusively by via calling a phone number, the voice on the other end of which, takes audiences on a walk around the city.

Discussion Experiment No. 3 – Outside Central Bank, Dame Street, 25 & 26 April, 13:30 (Free)

ABACUS By Brokenrtalkers: A collaboration and commission with Upstate Theatre Project

Anything the Brokentalkers are involved with is worth checking out, and I’d expect this to be no different. It’s a short film, being shown as part of the Future Shorts Festival.

This Is My Body by Veronica Dyas – Cube, Project Arts Centre, 24 April, 20:15 –  €15/€12

This is new work by Veronica Dyas, one of the more interesting theatre makers in Ireland today. “They say she holds the key to sovereignty in her person. I have marked mine on my body.”
