Public Art and Sculpture Trail

Lisburn City Council's XPLORART Sculpture Trail is one of the most prestigious public arts projects ever undertaken in Northern Ireland and is the first public art programme to be implemented by Lisburn City Council. The programme illustrates the Council's proactive approach to the development of an integrated schedule of public art incentive schemes and commissions to enhance the visitor profile of Lisburn City.


XPLORART entails eight site specific sculptures at Lagan Valley Island co-funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Lottery Fund. The trail is supplemented by exhibition spaces at ISLAND Arts Centre where temporary exhibitions are accommodated and with its remarkable collection of contemporary works of art, is a fine example ART PARTNERS of both urban and rural renewal.

ORLANDO

ORLANDO

From Dyad Productions, the award–winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, The Time Machine, Christmas Gothic, Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic and Austen’s Women.

Orlando: Who is she?  Who is he?  Who are we? 

Find out in the life–affirming, comedic tale of an immortal poet, whose gender cannot be pinned down, whose spirit cannot be caged, and whose irreverent, romantic adventures across British history – from the 1500s to the present day – provide a magic–realist exploration of human identity; personal, sexual and national. 

Drawing on a decade’s worth of critically–acclaimed theatre–making, Dyad Productions – performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend Jones – explore what it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are.  Based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf.

‘A towering performance‘ (The Scotsman – 5 star review)
