NCI MUSIC & ART PERFORMANCES
NCI works with groups and organisations in various music and art projects. Our projects include:
NCI’s participation in the Davis’s play at the Chambers of the Dublin City Hall, April 2014.
In 2015, NCI did the unprecedented, ran a William Butler Yeats play with Nigeria cast. This was NCI’s 1st Production of W.B Yeats’ The Only Jealousy Of Emer, a Dublin City Arts Office This play was originally produced and staged on the Tenement Museum Site on Henrietta Street, Dublin, by NCI, as part of the 2015 International Literature Festival, Dublin and supported by Yeats 2015. Audiences followed the production into different studios and were made to feel like part of the production.
