“Are there limits to what an artistic experience can achieve?”

This year’s production of Vardo marks the end of ANU Productions’ remarkable Monto Cycle. In its creation and presentation the company has delved into secret histories and societal scandals with precision and dreamlike intensity. ANU have brought the voices of a hidden Ireland to the fore, blurred the lines between interactive, participative and site-specific work, and challenged the accepted conventions of theatre and visual art.

A two-day symposium produced and curated by Lynnette Moran, NOW-THEN-NOW: Witnessing Future History will reflect on what it means to embrace artistic practice that connects with social, environmental and political factors. Taking ANU’s work as inspiration and provocation, it will explore the aesthetic and ethical consequences of immersive work that creates innovative exchanges with audiences. It will also seek to acknowledge the groundswell of artists making collaborative work in Ireland and aim to situate that work within the context of a growing international movement.

There will be a series of installations and interventions related to  this two day event.

More information will be available on Create's website, at dublintheatrefestival.ie and also on Facebook.
