VISIT Open Studios

11th MAY 2013 - 12pm-6pm

Come and meet the artists in their studios!

Coming up on Saturday 11th May @ La Catedral Studios and the Back Loft! VISIT Open Studios and the second coming of Feel Free to Jam, where musicians are invited to bring their instruments and jam around our piano at the back Loft. Lunchtime gourmet food and sangria will be prepared by staff member Dylan and will be served throughout the day. Our quaint little Cafe will be open and the Back Loft will showcase art work by the studio artists. 

12-6pm (and maybe later) It promises to be a great day!

Visit 2013 is a weekend event which will see artist’s studios organisations all over Dublin city opening their doors to the public. Artists make their artworks in buildings that are scattered throughout the city, and Visit 2013 invites you to enter these usually private spaces, talk to the artists and see their work first hand.
In Dublin City, artist’s studios old and new exist in a variety of buildings including industrial warehouses, Georgian buildings, converted stables and former shop units. You might not be aware that the building on the corner or down the road from your house is actually a hub of artistic activity. If you have ever been curious about what goes on inside an artists studios, Visit 2013 is your chance to find out!

Journey through a night out as ‘David Attenborough’ examines the mating rituals of the Irish.
Can a ‘Dub’ and ‘Culchie’ possibly make a match or will their cultural differences prove too much of a barrier?

Following the great success of our debut last November we are back with a feature length presentation that follows a man's quest to find love in a crowded nightclub..

Attenborough trails four lads attempting to summon enough ‘Dutch’ courage to make a move while their female counterparts grow impatient. Will the strongest male act in time before disappearing into the drunken abyss?

All manner of mis-haps and misunderstandings of a typical night out are explored in this laugh-a-minute story about the trials and tribulations of single life and the difficulties of finding that rose beneath the broken pint glasses.

Put simply, it will be a show rather than a play. Come for the ride! (No pun intended!!)
