Work is advancing rapidly on construction of the new wing of The Merrion Hotel. The multi-storey building addresses both the internal garden and Baggot Street. Demolitions, subworks and basements are complete and upper floors are set to appear on the street and skyline over summer 2016. The project is due for completion Easter 2017. Watch here for further updates.
Commissioned by An Post Witness History, and in association with Dublin Dance Festival, Embodied is a series of six new dance solos by female choreographers based in Ireland that calls attention to the role of women as initiators of change within Irish society. Over a course of three nights the performance journeyed through the original fabric of the GPO building and newly opened GPO Witness History Centre. This was an unique opportunity to see an intimate and historically poignant performance nestled in the eye-catching surrounds of the GPO's east courtyard.
