#CreateAtHome - My Dream Day - Make your Own Animation Set

With Genevieve Harden

Wed 6 - Sun 31 Jan 2021

Artist Genevieve Harden has created this amazing workshop to help you create your own Animation Set, complete with backdrop, props and a mini photo of yourself in the middle of all the action, on your dream day. First a brainstorm to draw your perfect sketched background painting. Maybe a Hot Air Balloon Adventure? Maybe a Beach Scene? Or maybe a Giant Ladybird and lots of Giant Flowers? Enjoy drawing and painting your backdrop and adding in objects into your scene. Gen shows us how to make a ladybird from plasticine to complete her adventure. You could carry on this idea and make your own stop motion movie afterwards.  

Enjoy!

Draíocht's Family Art programme is ideal for ages 5-10 years.

Back in the studio, she will demonstrate how to construct a creature using sticks, clay and plaster bandage. Then you can either keep your animal, or return it to the wild!

Dirtbirds - No Filters

Fri 5 - Sat 6 Nov 2021 8PM Main Auditorium // €24 / €22 conc

In a world where women are expected to have the patience of Mother Teresa, the arse of Jennifer Lopez, the social media profile of Kim Kardashian and the BMI of Elle McPherson, the pressure is relentless. Dirtbirds, the comedy duo and internet sensation, present their hilarious new show ‘No Filters’ which takes a close look at the barrage of bullshit we are subjected to on a daily basis and reminds us that despite what we’re told, there is NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT ... (except maybe Jamie Dornan’s arse in Fifty Shades Darker.)

So.. if you need answers to questions like:
How do I have confidence when I feel lower than a snake’s arse?
How do I learn to love my muffin top?
When the kids wreck my head how do I stop myself from selling them on Done Deal?
… then this is definitely the show for you. (Perfect women not allowed in)

PLEASE NOTE: This show has been rescheduled to Fri 5th & Sat 6th November 2021 (from 5th March). We are in the process of contacting all customers to transfer tickets to the new date or arrange refunds.
