Friday 6th May @7.30 PM: Performance of ‘Making A Mark’ in The Project Arts Centre, Dublin
Following a sell out premiere production at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2019, Making A Mark returns for a
National Tour throughout Ireland in 2022.
Making A Mark is a documentary style, autobiographical piece that places the voice and lived experience of
an artist with an intellectual disability front and centre stage.
Mark Smith, a 40 year old performer with Down Syndrome, first began to develop the piece across a 6
month residency at Axis Ballymun in 2018. Here, he worked alongside leading documentary artist Shaun
Dunne and long time collaborator Aisling Byrne.
More information about the production is available here:
