workshop

The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

The Dean Hotel

There's an undeniably unique identity brought to bear on each of the rapidly expanding array of bars and restaurants owned by the Press Up Group. With The Dean, they can adorn it with a jewel in their crown. This boutique hotel makes you want to scream 'wow' but the elegant and considered surrounds keep you classy. There's the smartly understated entrance, the playful swings outside their restaurant Sophies, the gorgeous 360 vista of the city up there and the attention to detail such as the notes on the bed linen. The corridors and rooms boast an investment of €250,000 in exceedingly cool contemporary Irish art under the brilliant guidance of James Earley. A hotel of its time and one that genuinely feels in sync and aware of the surrounding undercurrents of the city. A pitch perfect arrival. / Michael McDermott

cinema

Winter Sleep

Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s listless, lethargic Winter Sleep following his excellent Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, sprawls and thaws for 196 minutes (bring your eye drops!) to chart the midlife crisis of a retired thespian-turned-writer, a pedantic Casaubon or marooned Prospero. Jury President Jane Campion’s disappointing choice for the prestigious Palme d’Or this year, Winter Sleep, cold, pallid, and aged, seems to reverse unfortunately last year’s winner Blue is the Warmest Colour. I wouldn’t disagree that a film this drily, relentlessly, excruciatingly masturbatory may need some lubricant, but it can nonetheless be occasionally interesting — the literal nods to tumbleweeds, Shakespearean intertextuality, class-conflict subplot, the coup de théâtre in which the protagonist vomits on himself — when not actively trying to shut out its audience. / Ross McDonnell

exhibition

J.P Keating X Indigo & Cloth

It's not so hard being a fly guy in Dublin these days, with so many retail spaces catering to menswear that's cool and street. Indigo & Cloth was the first though, and with a slick new Clement & Pekoe café and an exhibition of J.P Keating's work, they are kicking off the festive season with a few bevvies, and an all important festive discount on purchases. As you shop till you drop, take in J.P's images - he's not just a former Le Cool cover artist (natch), but he's taken portraits of hundreds of people, including dramatic luminaries such as Colm Meaney and Saoirse Ronan. He's a ninja with a camera, always trailing a characterful face or a sweet smile for a photo opp. Expect some beautiful portraits to reach out to you, in their weird, spiritual way, including one of Indigo & Cloth's Garrett Pitcher. / Kate Coleman

comedy

Atom Tick

Collaborations are a wonderful thing, right? I'm always intrigued. One cool new collaborative duo in Dublin are James Moran and Stephane Hanly - two forces coming together to create one super charged experimental comedy show. These are two very funny men, who I have seen perform individually at separate spoken word events. Both gave genuine highlight performances. Well planned, yet not over-rehearsed. Reserved, yet ludicrous. From this short radio segment I can tell you that the audience are not expected to laugh, but sometimes that's exactly when you can't resist it no more. Also given that 'live demonstrations of future-tech prototypes' (WTF?) will be part of Atom Tick, my guess is that all present will be rolling their heads back and also on the ground in fits of laughter through out the show. / Georgia

Troilus and Cressida

Until December 3rd, we’re given a rare, fleeting opportunity to see one of Shakespeare’s little-performed problem plays, a metatheatrical staging of the tail-end of the Trojan war that occupies some generic position between witty comedy and eccentric tragedy. Shakespeare’s “why not?” rewriting of grand narratives of history and mythology - a satire of Homer’s epic Iliad and parody of Chaucer’s medieval, Middle English poem — ruthlessly and rigorously sucker-punches and body-slams these lofty, free-floating figures of Greek tragedy. Alternately elevating and undermining Classical ethics and values, yoking together love and betrayal with sex and violence, it’s exciting indeed to see just what the Fine Arts students at The Lir will make of the play, its tonal see-saw oscillating reliably from the wacky and bawdy to the pitch-black bleak. / Ross McDonnell

theatre

The Turn of the Screw

Silent Chuckler Productions adapt Henry James’s awfully clever 1898 novella, tightly focusing and cropping the beloved gothic ghost story into an atmospheric staging at Smock Alley Theatre. Narrowed to a two-hander between Irene Kelleher (wonderful as the doe-eyed green governess, with a volatile psyche and a lot going on right now) and Mark Griffin, its minimalist aesthetic is effective in deepening the troubling ambiguity in James’s text — full of dark spaces, risk-laden and proliferating ropeburn-threads of interpretation, beginnings but never endings — where one or anybody may at one or any time be, yes, a ghost. The gothic in the famously-framed story, riddling and spiralling, is not Romantic but mechanical, carefully structured and assembled, increasingly tense and torturous as the titular, structural and metaphorical screw turns. / Ross McDonnell
