MCs convene to create a freestyle cypher on stage. Unrehearsed, spontaneous, CYPHER will unleash an unfiltered transmission. Featuring beats from emerging producers across Ireland, and bars from extraordinary MCs cutting through the noise.
In the uncharted territories ahead: What do you want? What happens next? We’ve navigated through the global crisis, and now we find ourselves among inadequate social structures, claustrophobic ways of life, and burned out rhythms. We also find people asking questions about how to embrace uncertainty and the unknown, to sort out the trajectories of their lives without knowing where the world is going. The only map we have for this new territory is what we want. The only option is utopia.
Presented by Una Mullally and Conner Habib, in collaboration with the National Concert Hall and multiple artists across the island of Ireland and beyond. Utopia is a series of immersive experiences where Utopia is a process, not a state. Utopia links the force of artistic vision to the intensity of love and the willingness to be there for ourselves and one another, even when the future is unknown.
This series of idealistic, speculative, and aspirational events brings forth utopian visions of individuals, and ignites the utopian will of the collective. Join us to leave behind the predictable and structured, and to celebrate risk, uncertainty and spontaneity.
Una Mullally is a writer from Dublin. She is interested in what happens next.
Conner Habib is the host of the podcast Against Everyone With Conner Habib; his debut novel, Hawk Mountain, will be published by Doubleday in 2022.
