THE EURYDICE PROJECT
by Joanna Crawley
A radical new retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth — from her side of hell on earth. Featuring live music for percussion and strings, composed by Jane Deasy, follow Eurydice on an epic music-theatre journey of love, rage, fury and struggle against cold political calculation.
This visually stunning work explodes the classical myth into a highly visceral spectacle to unearth what lies beneath the fakery and chicanery of our patriarchal society.

Mark and Violet have run away from technology-obsessed reality to raise their future child closer to nature. No enhancements, no bionic super-limbs, no shopping for perfect embryos. They want everything, from their flesh to their love to be real. But there’s no love without fear of loss.
So will you get old with me? Violet?
Stacey Gregg (winner Irish Times Theatre Awards Best New Play 2015) examines the boundaries of our faith in science. Turned by Sophie Motley into a digital spectacle with visceral audio visual design, an unsettlingly funny, bitter love letter to the future.
"Refreshingly anarchic...bright and unreal.”

The Art of Decision Making
What it is...
An evening exploring how our brains make decisions and tell stories.
Wednesday 30th of January - Leixlip Library - 7pm
Thursday 31st of January - Science Gallery Dublin - 630pm
What it's all about...
White Label and The Festival of Curiosity invite you to come and test your cognitive biases and be part of the development of a new piece of groundbreaking theatre.
This event is designed to develop a new play by road-testing experimental surveys and providing a forum to discuss the art and the science behind the show.
In addition to the live surveys, there will be a rehearsed reading of an excerpt of the play and a panel discussion on the neuroscience and psychology of decision making and how our brains are fundamentally narrative machines.
