Josephine K and the Algorithms

Date: through .
Time: Times Vary
Location: Abbey Theatre
Address: Dublin
Category: Theatre / Dance
Josephine K is on trial, but she doesn’t even know what for; it is all very arbitrary. Josephine keeps meeting self-assured people at every turn - people who surely should know something, but when prodded, they have no information to give.

Written by Stacy Gregg, Josephine K and the Algorithms will probably bring Franz Kafka’s The Trial to mind. Stacey can see the parallels between Kafka’s society and our current corporate culture and so has consequently updated the play.

The dawn of tech is what largely informs Stacey’s iteration of The Trial; at a time when Wikileaks and faceless online trolls can manipulate elections, it seems pertinent to look at the themes once again.

Gregg’s previous plays Scorch and Shibboleth both garnered her praise and prizes, so Josephine K and the Algorithms at the Abbey Theatre is likely to be no different.

Tickets
€16-€25

Stephen McKenna Exhibition

Date: through .
Time: Times Vary
Location: Kerlin Gallery,
Address: South Anne Street Dublin
Category: Arts / Exhibits
Stephen McKenna, who passed away this year, is being remembered with an exhibition at the Kerlin Gallery.

The British-born artist has work residing in the collections of the Tate and the Imperial War Museum, among others and made his home in Ireland, becoming an eventual president of the Royal Hibernian Academy.

McKenna’s postmodern figurative paintings are a pastiche on classical imagery, such as that found on ancient Greek pottery. Explore the deep philosophical ideas embedded in the artist's work that are considered to be grounded in the earlier art of the surrealists.

Enjoy this timely celebration of an incredibly talented artist at the Kerlin Gallery and you'll soon see how Stephen McKenna has left an indelible mark on the history of postmodern art.

Address: Dublin
Category: Arts / Exhibits

St Vincent

Date: through .
Time: Times Vary
Location: Olympia Theatre
Address: Dublin
Category: Concert / Live Music
St Vincent is a punchy performer, a virtuosic guitarist and all-round superstar. Initially a touring member of the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens’ band, in recent years she has emerged as one of the leading lights in modern indie-rock.

From collaborating on the excellent This Giant with David Byrne of the Talking Heads to winning awards for studio albums like her self-titled 2014 effort, which spawned hits like Digital Witness and Birth in Reverse, St Vincent has consistently impressed.

St Vincent’s first release since that album, New York, sets the scene for her 2017 style. Taking a dark turn away from her poppier past few years, she is building on her innate musicality and crafting tracks that are almost cinematic in their scope.

Her new tour will bring together the many St Vincents; expect to have a bop, a weep, and lose your mind to some pretty amazing music, performed theatrically by the woman herself.

Tickets
From €28.50

William Crozier - The Edge of the Landscape

Date: through .
Time: Times Vary
Location: Irish Museum of Modern Art
Address: Dublin
Category: Arts / Exhibits
William Crozier was a Scottish-born, Irish artist whose work saw him appreciated on a European scale.

Crozier was nothing if not urbane, settling in London, Dublin and Paris at one time or another. His work - figurative, bright and abstract, saw him aligned with European artists, and their appreciation was proven when he was awarded the Premio Lissone in Milan in 1958.

IMMA is looking to the landscapes that Crozier created during the autumn of his career, when he was resident in his beloved West Cork, and contrasting them with his early work which was inspired by the existentialism movement in the shadow of the recently-ceased world war.

William Crozier passed away in 2011, but IMMA is ensuring that his memory doesn’t fade with the years by renewing the public’s interest in his work with this comprehensive exhibition.

KSW 40 - MMA Event

Date:
Time: Times Vary
Location: 3Arena Dublin
Category: Sports
KSW legend and five-time World's Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski (11-5, 5 KO, 2 Sub) has been officially added to KSW 40 at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on October 22nd.
“Pudzian” dominated the world of strongmen with five titles between 2002 and 2008, more than anyone else in the sport. After he left he then focused on MMA and has had great success over the years defeating the likes of Oli Thompson, Sean McCorkle, Butterbean, Bob Sapp and has that highlight reel KO win over Rolles Gracie Jr.
Now he returns to Ireland, where he won the World's Giants strongman title in 2002, and will compete here for the first time in his MMA career. His opponent will be announced in the coming weeks but the heavyweight promises an entertaining fight for the Irish fans in attendance.
KSW CEO and co-founder Martin Lewandowski spoke of his excitement at having Mariusz Pudzianowski on the first ever card in Ireland.
"I can't wait for the Irish fans to get a true KSW experience with all the quality fighters we will have, the lights, the atmosphere, and now with the five-time world's strongest man on the card," smiled Lewandowski. "Mariusz Pudzianowski is one of our marquee fighters, so I am happy he will be on our first card in Ireland. We want to make this a special event and any event with 'Pudzian' on it is. He adds an element to the card that not many other fighters can bring. Just seeing him fight in person is an event in itself"
The announcement of Pudzianowski comes days after a rematch between Norman Parke and Mateusz Gamrot for the lightweight title was added to the card.
You can buy tickets for KSW 40 at Ticketmaster.ie and you can also watch this event live from anywhere in the world on October 22nd at KSWTV.com.

William Crozier was a Scottish-born, Irish artist whose work saw him appreciated on a European scale.

Crozier was nothing if not urbane, settling in London, Dublin and Paris at one time or another. His work - figurative, bright and abstract, saw him aligned with European artists, and their appreciation was proven when he was awarded the Premio Lissone in Milan in 1958.

IMMA is looking to the landscapes that Crozier created during the autumn of his career, when he was resident in his beloved West Cork, and contrasting them with his early work which was inspired by the existentialism movement in the shadow of the recently-ceased world war.

William Crozier passed away in 2011, but IMMA is ensuring that his memory doesn’t fade with the years by renewing the public’s interest in his work with this comprehensive exhibition.

ROSS O’CARROLL-KELLY | POSTCARDS FROM THE LEDGE
by Paul Howard
a one-man show Starring Rory Nolan as Ross
FOR 19 PERFORMANCES ONLY AT THE GAIETY THEATRE
FROM 25 Oct – 11 Nov 2017
Tickets from €22 on sale now

Ross O’Carroll-Kelly takes his rightful place in the spotlight … starring in his own one-man show on the stage of the Gaiety Theatre.

The year is 2029 and Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better for him. His wife, Sorcha, is the Taoiseach. His triplet boys are the backbone of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. And he still does alright with the ladies.

As the Managing Director of Hook, Lyon and Sinker estate agents, he spends most of the day with his feet up. But when a client rings and asks someone to put a valuation on 22 Glenageary Glen, a semi-detached house in Sallynoggin, Ross decides to do the job himself. The reason is that he recognizes the address as his childhood home.

As he stands in the doorway of the run-down, council-built house, the sediment of old memories is stirred up. And he takes us on a journey of remembrance, through happy times and sad times, laughter and tears, until he realizes that the job of putting a price on the house – and its treasure of memories – is impossible.

Because it’s priceless.

You shouldn't miss the chance to see this Broadway favourite in one of Dublin's most gorgeous theatres. Sink into your seat and spend an evening exploring sensational Miss Saigon.

Dun Laoghaire Harbour Bicentenary
01 May - Tuesday 31 October 2017
Venue: Dún Laoghaire
Dún Laoghaire Harbour has been a place where relatives have waved off ships of emigrants, and where cruises have stopped off, heaving with eager tourists.

It has long has been a place of industry, tourism, and as its uses have changed, it has undergone facelifts, from rudimentary harbour to a modern hive of activity.

This festival will celebrate two hundred years of Dún Laoghaire harbour with history talks, contemporary art exhibitions, and even a live recording of the RTÉ Sunday Miscellany boasting stories, songs, and spoken word.

A highlight is sure to be the Dún Laoghaire Historical Society Exhibition as it explores the lives of the seaside townspeople and how they lived.

Children can enjoy workshops, and everyone is welcome to feast at the International Harbour Food Festival. Watch sailing boats bob on the horizon or perhaps tour the harbour with a knowledgable guide... whether it's music, history or sport you're into, you'll find something to love at the Dún Laoghaire Harbour Bicentenary.
