Darklight

Darklight enters the festival frey with a pirouette it's been perfecting over the last 15 years. Jam hot with screenings, talks, workshops and revelery, it consistently peels away our perception of the now to reveal insights, patterns and predictions. It launches with the gala premiere of The Last Hijack, a Somalian pirates story which melds animation and documentary storytelling. Other highlights include Film 4 commissioner Anna Higgs, a premiere of controversial coming-of-age film Wetlands,  a workshop to make your own Oculus Rift, a virtual Q&A with Act of Killing director Joshua Oppenheimer, a party in the Generator with the Forza Italia squad, A Spell to Ward off the Darkness and Electro Moskva which tells the tale of Russia through the soundwaves of a theremin and its electronic era. A truly original and unique festival worthy of your spotlight explorations. / Josh Jacobs

Cycling Makes Sense

How appropriate that this falls two days after Earth Day? Environmental consciousness is so cool right now. Cycling reduces CO2 emissions as well as cutting consumption of petrol. It’s cheaper too as maintenance costs are negligible (though you have to factor in the possibility of theft, lbh). The benefits for you include building exercise into your routine as well as looking oh so chic sitting pretty on that seat. So why then are there so few cycle paths in Dublin? And why do many of them abruptly end in the middle of the road? This lecture will address those questions and more as well as explaining the benefits of cycling in more, er, expert terms. The talk is part of the Dublin Cycling Campaign’s effort to make Dublin cycle safe. So don’t forget that high vis jacket. / Aisling Kett

Live Collision

Live Collision is just that, a whirlwind collection of questions and queries, pushes and probes that lifts the lid and pricks the skin. Based in The Project but spanning city wide the performances merge audience and artist as they tug and pull at our societal fabric, considering the moment between action and consequence and where our responsibility as individuals and as the collective falls between. Gathering politics, people and public space into the fold, Live Collision aims to turn our perceptions on their heads, encourages us to view our culture from upside down and reconsider how we engage with ourselves and each other in this wonderful kaleidoscope we exist within. / Sophie Donaldson

Leper + Chip

You know how it is – you’re at quite possibly the most violent house party ever and then SMACK you fall in love! At least that’s how it is or Leper + Chip – sort of. They go from mortal enemies to star crossed lovers in the space of a day. Unfortunately for them in the previous 24 hours all sorts of drama has unfolded and their plans for a happy ever after look to be just wishful thinking. Set in deepest Dublin this is a high octane roller coaster ride through their relationship that takes in gangsters, cougars and fall down drunks along the way. The two actors are perfectly in sync throughout and their energy is infectious. This play starts on a high and doesn’t let up until the closing scene. An exhausting but worthwhile journey this is a modern day Romeo and Juliet with Pringles instead of poison! / Frances Winston

exhibition

Welcome To Heterotopia

Dublin's Jason Kearney (AKA Cuts) is a young master of surrealism. He manipulates pixels over paste and photoshop over paper to create surreal digital collages. His robot-populated creations marry classical with sic-fi and his eclectic creations are as enjoyable as they are unique. These works hint at the explorer in all of us. The ones who look not just skywards, but to parallel universes and ask; 'What if?'. Sean Hillen, Ireland pre-eminent photomontage artist opens this exhibition, which assures you of the quality on offer. Hillen himself is a national treasure, a montage mammoth, whose work you may recognise form iconic album covers. Heterotopia is a concept in human geography to describe places and spaces such as the space of a phone call or the moment when you see yourself in the mirror. Come see it for yourself. / Vernon Steel
