Let us grow together

This is a community project devised by artist Steve Doody. It sees the reimagining and re-appropriating of unused and underused parts of Dublin. There are many small areas in the city which are closed off to the public, surrounded by tall metal fences. This will be an investigation into reusing these areas to be of benefit to the city’s children and inhabitants.

A tree planting workshop will take place in the Memorial Garden on Saturday 6th April at 11 am as part of the Five Lamps Arts Festival. The workshop will be delivered by horticulturist Martina Speranza from the Teagasc school of Horticulture in the National Botanic Gardens. A selection of native species such as Holly, Rowan and Ash will be planted.

Actions by John Scott

ACTIONS is a physical conversation between two individuals in empty space. Two outstanding male dancers merge and break apart – a forceful resistance to merging and the breaking up is the motivation for the movement. The dance material is a battle through the space using physicality, lifts, falls, text and sound with the dancers alternately throwing their bodies together then fragmenting into threads of raw movement. ACTIONS is funny and tender and human. It is performed as a form or “work in progress”. The dancers are engaged in a task of executing difficult and exerting dance but also commenting on the dance, their states of mind.

With choreography by John Scott and music fragments by Meredith Monk and Michael Galasso, ACTIONS displays not only impressive sheer athleticism, but is skillfully placed and full of small surprises.
