We have rejoiced in the office for the return of our Artistic Director Jo Mangan who was away on annual leave. Marketa and I held down the fort and moved the troops forwards to the increasing potential for work this year… We have a good few projects in the pipeline for this year and we will reveal them as soon as we’re allowed! I can say that we’ll be putting the call out in the next week or so for a fantastic new opportunity for artists. So WATCH THIS SPACE!

Paper Ball Film Screening
Oisín Byrne recently held screenings of his Paper Ball film, an offshoot of SPACE Programme 2009, that culminated originally in a piece commissioned for the Allianz Business to Arts Awards 2009, which were hosted at Castletown House. White-Out was created by The Performance Corporation, with music by Jo Thomas and costumes by Oisín Byrne. The final shots were filmed last November with a Bolex camera and over 90 performers in attendance. I watched it all unfold, although I didn’t envy the poor cold performers!
