“Are there limits to what an artistic experience can achieve?”

monto cycle game2014 production of Vardo marked the end of ANU Productions’ remarkable Monto Cycle. In its creation and presentation the company has delved into secret histories and societal scandals with precision and dreamlike intensity. ANU have brought the voices of a hidden Ireland to the fore, blurred the lines between interactive, participative and site-specific work, and challenged the accepted conventions of theatre and visual art.

A two-day symposium produced and curated by Lynnette Moran, NOW-THEN-NOW: Witnessing Future History reflected on what it meant to embrace artistic practice that connects with social, environmental and political factors. Taking ANU’s work as inspiration and provocation, it explored the aesthetic and ethical consequences of immersive work that creates innovative exchanges with audiences. It also acknowledged the groundswell of artists making collaborative work in Ireland and aim to situate that work within the context of a growing international movement.

There was a series of installations and interventions related to  this two day event.
