We work with poets, authors, musicians, composers and educators from Dublin and around the world, bringing quality arts programming to Irish audiences. Our ongoing initiative, the Performing Poetry Project, is in its fourth year. Keep up to date and don't miss opportunities for the best literary and musical work in Dublin. NDP also aims to bring our work overseas, presenting readings, performances, exhibitions and lectures around the world.

NDP presents a collaborative performance by poets Annemarie Ní Churreáin, Kimberly Campanello, and Kinga Tóth. This collaboration arises from the poets' shared emphasis on the musicality and materiality of language – from Hungarian, to German, to Irish, to English, to Sanskrit – including the physical processes of shaping language in poetry performance. In this piece, the poets have meditated upon the themes of borders, cycles and the taking of life.
