The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

The Dean Hotel

There's an undeniably unique identity brought to bear on each of the rapidly expanding array of bars and restaurants owned by the Press Up Group. With The Dean, they can adorn it with a jewel in their crown. This boutique hotel makes you want to scream 'wow' but the elegant and considered surrounds keep you classy. There's the smartly understated entrance, the playful swings outside their restaurant Sophies, the gorgeous 360 vista of the city up there and the attention to detail such as the notes on the bed linen. The corridors and rooms boast an investment of €250,000 in exceedingly cool contemporary Irish art under the brilliant guidance of James Earley. A hotel of its time and one that genuinely feels in sync and aware of the surrounding undercurrents of the city. A pitch perfect arrival. / Michael McDermott

Winter Sleep

Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s listless, lethargic Winter Sleep following his excellent Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, sprawls and thaws for 196 minutes (bring your eye drops!) to chart the midlife crisis of a retired thespian-turned-writer, a pedantic Casaubon or marooned Prospero. Jury President Jane Campion’s disappointing choice for the prestigious Palme d’Or this year, Winter Sleep, cold, pallid, and aged, seems to reverse unfortunately last year’s winner Blue is the Warmest Colour. I wouldn’t disagree that a film this drily, relentlessly, excruciatingly masturbatory may need some lubricant, but it can nonetheless be occasionally interesting — the literal nods to tumbleweeds, Shakespearean intertextuality, class-conflict subplot, the coup de théâtre in which the protagonist vomits on himself — when not actively trying to shut out its audience. / Ross McDonnell

J.P Keating X Indigo & Cloth

It's not so hard being a fly guy in Dublin these days, with so many retail spaces catering to menswear that's cool and street. Indigo & Cloth was the first though, and with a slick new Clement & Pekoe café and an exhibition of J.P Keating's work, they are kicking off the festive season with a few bevvies, and an all important festive discount on purchases. As you shop till you drop, take in J.P's images - he's not just a former Le Cool cover artist (natch), but he's taken portraits of hundreds of people, including dramatic luminaries such as Colm Meaney and Saoirse Ronan. He's a ninja with a camera, always trailing a characterful face or a sweet smile for a photo opp. Expect some beautiful portraits to reach out to you, in their weird, spiritual way, including one of Indigo & Cloth's Garrett Pitcher. / Kate Coleman

Atom Tick

Collaborations are a wonderful thing, right? I'm always intrigued. One cool new collaborative duo in Dublin are James Moran and Stephane Hanly - two forces coming together to create one super charged experimental comedy show. These are two very funny men, who I have seen perform individually at separate spoken word events. Both gave genuine highlight performances. Well planned, yet not over-rehearsed. Reserved, yet ludicrous. From this short radio segment I can tell you that the audience are not expected to laugh, but sometimes that's exactly when you can't resist it no more. Also given that 'live demonstrations of future-tech prototypes' (WTF?) will be part of Atom Tick, my guess is that all present will be rolling their heads back and also on the ground in fits of laughter through out the show. / Georgia

Troilus and Cressida

Until December 3rd, we’re given a rare, fleeting opportunity to see one of Shakespeare’s little-performed problem plays, a metatheatrical staging of the tail-end of the Trojan war that occupies some generic position between witty comedy and eccentric tragedy. Shakespeare’s “why not?” rewriting of grand narratives of history and mythology - a satire of Homer’s epic Iliad and parody of Chaucer’s medieval, Middle English poem — ruthlessly and rigorously sucker-punches and body-slams these lofty, free-floating figures of Greek tragedy. Alternately elevating and undermining Classical ethics and values, yoking together love and betrayal with sex and violence, it’s exciting indeed to see just what the Fine Arts students at The Lir will make of the play, its tonal see-saw oscillating reliably from the wacky and bawdy to the pitch-black bleak. / Ross McDonnell

The Turn of the Screw

Silent Chuckler Productions adapt Henry James’s awfully clever 1898 novella, tightly focusing and cropping the beloved gothic ghost story into an atmospheric staging at Smock Alley Theatre. Narrowed to a two-hander between Irene Kelleher (wonderful as the doe-eyed green governess, with a volatile psyche and a lot going on right now) and Mark Griffin, its minimalist aesthetic is effective in deepening the troubling ambiguity in James’s text — full of dark spaces, risk-laden and proliferating ropeburn-threads of interpretation, beginnings but never endings — where one or anybody may at one or any time be, yes, a ghost. The gothic in the famously-framed story, riddling and spiralling, is not Romantic but mechanical, carefully structured and assembled, increasingly tense and torturous as the titular, structural and metaphorical screw turns. / Ross McDonnell

Dublin Unpublished

Conor Horgan is the embodiment of the idea that the best way to perfect your art is by simply doing it as often as possible. As a friend of his, I'm treated to the daily delight of a series of images he posts from past and present on his facebook page. Whether it's the staged or the observed, he brings an unerring quality and candour to what passes before his lens. As an exceedingly well connected man across all walks of life, Conor also happens to be an amazing documentarian of Dublin and its people. The Queen of Ireland, his highly anticipated portrait of Panti, reaches fruition next year but before this, we can appreciate this series of portraits. Whether it's a memory trigger of the late great Jonathan Philbin Bowman or the timely beauty of our cover this week, Conor's work is a masterclass which you should all attend. / Michael McDermott

Bring the Toys

Remember in school when you used to lovingly curate shoeboxes of yo-yos and books to be sent to underprivileged children at Christmas? You would wrap the box in fancy paper, stuff it with festive crepe paper and feel good, and whole, and generous. As you harumph into adulthood, apply the usual energy you reserve for ignoring chuggers into buying a few presents for kids, and head to the Back Page where prizes means seasonal treats, comedy and DJs, and a lot of fun. The crew are looking to brighten Christmas for kids in Temple Street Hospital, so bring books, games, CDs, and toys but not furry animals or cuddlies. It's been away for a few years, but a new bar needs new traditions, and it looks like this'll be the Back Page's one. / Kate Coleman

Timbuktu

Abderrahmane Sissako’s Timbuktu is just one of several highlights remaining as we reach near the close of this year’s French Film Festival, an important balancing post-colonial pick, and nice counter-programming for anybody tiring of the Parisian haute/petite bourgeoisie. A contender for this year’s Palme d’Or, and winner of the François Chalais Prize for journalism in film, Timbuktu depicts the occupation of the titular Malian city and the lives of those under the rule of religious fundamentalist jihadists, their reaction and rebellion to the terror of an unjust, harrowing regime. Sissako dealt deftly with colonialism and capitalist neo-imperialism in his 2006 Bamako, and that, and the fact that Timbuktu may not return to the IFI until May, is reason enough to delay an hour your sesh plans to fade/crossfade to the Late Late Toy Show. / Ross McDonnell

Aunty Ben

LGBT children's theatre exists. It's out there, just as a growing LGBT community is. Yet fear not, God fearing citizens, Aunty Ben is not the sexual awakening the bores and snores might have you believe. It's the brainchild of Super Paua Productions and the very articulate Sian Ní Mhuirí. The story's catalyst is 9 y/o Tracey's Aunty Ben, who is a drag queen. Tracey's friends are puzzled by 'Aunty' Ben and Tracey, who loves her lively relative, also begins to shy away. But nippers have an innate sense of fairness, so the story don't end there. The real theme here is acceptance and diversity. The script lightly uses gender roles, family structures and courage to craft this wider point. Young audience members are allowed to shape their own conclusions and btw there is no mention of Aunty Ben's sexuality or gender. / Georgia

The Possibilities are Endless

Edwyn Collins of 80s punk band Orange Juice, narrates in his moving documentary his stroke suffered in 2005 and subsequent difficulty with memory and speech— its touching title one of the four phrases Collins could repeat during his rehabilitation. But this is not a VH1 Behind the Music special. Directed by James Hall and Edward Lovelace, its haunting prologue, with the sensitive wistfulness of The Tree of Life, underlying body-horror psychodrama of Under the Skin, and full-of-wonder Ratcatcher-aesthetic, immediately establishes a certain tone, and the rest of the film, more straightforward, retains this lyricism and sensory emphasis as it chronicles Collins’s, and wife Grace's, inspiring and stirring story. The first screening of The Possibilities are Endless on Friday will, as well, be followed by an appearance and Q&A with Collins./ Ross McDonnell

Magnum PI

Oh! We're going to Hawaii...Oh! Hanging off of Tom Selleck's tash. Yep, Generator and Le Cool sat down to chat about doing a screening and party in honour of Movember, and this writer was immediately seized with the image of the second baby in Three Men and a Baby. Selleck's busy upper-lip. What better then, we thought, than to celebrate Movember with a Magnum PI screening? Lord knows Hawaiian shirts need an accessory, and a Mo Bro sure knows how to provide. After some sleuthing, the exuberant Chewy Chewerson will take to the decks with some disco tunes, and have you committing murder on the dancefloor. This ain't no mid-afternoon re-run on BBC2 y'all, this will blow your minds, Magnum stylee. / Kate Coleman

GIRLS NAMES

Joy Division, The Cure, Wire, Echo and the Bunnymen, Johnny Marr, Crystal Stilts, The Horrors. Girls Names wear their influences on their sleeves and that's just fine by us. 'The New Life' was one of our favourite albums of 2013 and we're excited to hear what new sounds the band have been cooking up on the road. The Joinery should be a suitably claustrophobic setting for the Belfast band's heavy yet strangely bright, shimmering sound. While largely guitar driven, synths add a welcome textural layer to the jangling strings and motorik rhythms. Cathal Cully's vocals are monotonous, muffled and (when we can make out what he's saying) morbid; perfect. Seems like the perfect soundtrack to a cold November night. Ravelled jumper sleeves pulled over hands, intense head-bobbing, hair falling into eyes…Let's go. / Mr & Mrs Stevens

It's just a crass way of asking who you'd like to revive for a dinner party, really...Anyway, Hunt & Gather put out for submissions to this loose, coffin-free brief, and the results will be being displayed in Molloy & Dowling, all thirty-five of them. Will someone go wacko with glitter for Jacko, or send out a 'wanted' poster for the late Tony Soprano? Who knows, either way, there'll be hip-as-heck illustrators such as Aoife Dooley exhibiting, so you might just get a cheap as chips €10 print as an homage to your late faves. / Kate Coleman

album launch

The Lee Harveys

They're 'Still Angry' and really you shouldn't want your punk music any other way. Launching the follow up to their blistering debut album Gun City, the writing is on the wall for these boys and its impressively writ large. Bitzy, Ruaidhri, Tony and Paul make up this 4-piece who hail from the Northside and having supported the likes of Stiff Little Fingers, they've been making impressive waves within the scene. While punk is often viewed through the nostalgia prism of publications such as Where Were You, it's refreshing to see and hear the sound of defiance being harnessed for music as well as water charges. With track titles ranging from Babylon to Jesus, there's a two finger attitude emblematic of spirit of '77 within their racket. Get angry with them and reconnect with the moshing skills you once had or have yet to discover. / Ethan O'Keeffe

Motor City Drum Ensemble

Stuttgart’s Danilo Plessow is a young man who’s musically got his foot in Detroit as the 'Motor City' suggests. But with his foot and ears in Chi town as well. He’s got an essential rhythm, having played drums from six. He released his first tracks at the tender age of 16. 2008’s RawCuts series brought this shooting star to widespread attention on the scene. What's clear is his every release has put emotion back in to the music one gritty sample at a time. He has an affinity for old-school Chicago house, not to mention vintage soul, disco, and boogie. But all this reverence doesn't mean he's recreating a sound. Here's an artist whose music and originality reminds us why all this was good in the first place. / Ene Keenan

2001: A Space Odyssey

There’s a moment in 2001: A Space Odyssey where we experience the infinity of space. It’s during a spacewalk when the astronaut leaves the ship to repair a ‘broken’ transmitter. Opening the door, space reveals itself on the screen and the relative claustrophobia of the ship is suddenly replaced by extreme agoraphobia. All the time there is buzzing background noise that somehow manages to convey, not silence, but the absence of noise. The screen itself is almost black but it’s not the vastness of space that gives the moment so powerful; it’s the outline of the hatch door. Kubrick understood that awe comes from within and the door reminds the brain that space is not mankind’s reality; it’s mankind’s frontier. No other cinematic experience, before or since, can thrust you into another world like 2001. Beautiful, mind-bending and eye-melting; this is big-screen cinema like no other. / Hugh Torpey

Stations of the Cross

Director Dietrich Brueggemann presents a harsh and haunting criticism of radical religion, specifically radical Catholicism. The film is laid out so that each scene is paired with one of the Stations of the Cross, following main character, Maria, as she prepares for her first communion. Nearly all of the scenes are done in one fixed shot, amplifying the frozen, helpless feeling of the watcher as you watch everything spiral out of control. There are a few tiny specks of humor, mainly inspired by Maria’s forbidding mother’s hatred of “satanic” music, but they inspire nervous laughter rather than hope or happiness. Lea van Acken does an unsettlingly good job portraying the multi-layered role of Maria, whose quiet fervor looms, omnipresent throughout the film. / Olivia Rutter

Flight Facilities

It's not until I began writing this that I realised I loved Flight Facilities, but haven't really really heard a whole lot of material from them. Crave You of course is an infectious single, but what other band would you go to see on the basis of a hand full of singles alone? That said, Flight Facilities may not have had an album until now but they do have their fairly unbeatable decades mix. Put it on and hours later you'll unbeknownst to yourself still be having a whopper time. Ideal if you're getting ready to go out or even more so if you're at a sesh desperately trying to avoid being a substitute DJ. At their Vicar Street show this duo will be debuting their new album, I'll be going out of intrigue alone and I'll be highly surprised if I, or any of the rest of you leave disappointed. / Niamh Keenan

Morrissey

It's not the second coming of our lord and Saviour, but it might as well be. Morrissey, the patron saint of angst ridden teenagers the world over, is gracing our shores to play the 3 arena. Sly digs aside, Morrissey, despite his age and divorce from The Smiths is still as relevant as he ever was. More than any other artist, Morrissey seems to speak to anyone adrift in life. If anyone represents the underdog in pop music, it's Morrissey. Unlike his peers, Morrissey's solo output is something that you could proudly slot in next to any Smiths record in your record collection. Carving out his own niche, he's never recorded an album with Metallica, stoked rumors about fronting Nirvana or toured with his own awkward line-up of the Smiths. Moz is no stranger to public gaffes, but then again, neither are my grandparents after a few glasses of brandy. / Jack Broughan

Eoin Mc Hugh

The title of Eoin McHugh’s exhibition, the skies will be friendlier then, is at once self-contained and contingent. So too is the titular work, a rectangular Persian carpet hung on the wall. One finds, on close inspection of its surface, not only ridges that run throughout but also pockets, depressions that, had it been on the floor of somebody’s house, could be the indentation of furniture legs, but that actually show that the piece had been created by splicing together segments of other rugs. This becomes clear when one looks at ‘what we know in what we see,’ another rug whose pattern is of a different configuration but is also similarly a collage. The assembling of disparate elements recurs in other works also, and seems to point obliquely to the artist’s interest in psychoanalysis. / Olen Bajarias
