sport

FunkedUp Gold Sprints

As we stressed when first highlighting The Back Page, this is a sports bar where the bar is designed for holding up drinks, as opposed to pot-bellied sports enthusiasts. Yes, the Back Page lover likes to participate, and FunkedUp Fixies' Gold Sprint ought to make your 6am spin class look like child's play. You'll never take that Ministry of Sound workout playlist for granted ever again. It'll be you, the bike, and 500 metres of imaginary terrain, so keep your eyes on the spot prizes, keep that ass off the saddle and your elbows parallel with the handlebars, and pedal pEDAL PEDAL! / Kate Coleman

Just My Type

Remember back when choosing your type meant Time New Roman or Comic Sans? (Times for your CV, Comic Sans - Party!). Well things have come along way since then. We’re all a bit more design savvy and thanks in part to the 2007 documentary Helvetica (which created a new breed of non-designer font snob) we seem to have a better appreciation of the magical world of typography. This exhibition from Hunt & Gather in conjunction with OFFSET celebrates this incredible art form. An open submission show, you can expect marvellous, intricate work, showy off designs and hauntingly gorgeous typefaces. Consider this the haute couture of type. Best of all the A3 prints will be available to order on the night for only €10 + post & packaging and proceeds from sales will go directly to the artists. / Ali Dunworth

opera

Suor Angelica

Originally, Puccini wrote Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) in the twentieth century, but set it in Italy in a seventeenth century convent. This production, by the Royal Irish Academy of Music and The Lir Academy, is set in 1980s in Ireland, in a Magdalene laundry. This modern interpretation of the setting fits seamlessly with the tragedy of Sister Angelica, and reminds you how realistic her story is, and how recently it could have taken place. The all woman-cast, led by the haunting and powerful Rebecca Rodgers, sucks you in immediately to their life in the laundries, flawlessly pulling off one of Puccini’s most striking one-act operas. In addition, The Peacock stage is an amazing and intimate place to watch this opera, as there is not a bad seat in the house. / Olivia Rutter

launch

Make Ready - Peter Maybury

Peter Maybury who kicks off the main stage at Offset on Friday morning and celebrates a book launch tonight is been a truly unique staple of the graphic design scene in the city. His subtle and distinctive visual impact will have been witnessed, if not always associated. by many throughout the years. Make Ready explores over 20 years of collaborations and ideas morphing through an exhibition and book launch. The retro design of the book makes it feel like an instant classic, something you might have found in Eileen Gray's study in Paris in the 1950s. "Part manifesto, part process journal it gathers recollections and observations on the making of work". The exhibition will also highlight his work in the field of music with his band Thread Pulls as well as film work, sound projects and various curatorial undertakings. Just ensure that he doesn't stay out too late please! / Michael McDermott

White God

White God is a film that should perhaps come with a health warning. It is not a pretty watch - it is raw, disturbing, and upsetting. Particularly if you are a dog lover. The premise is an allegory for ethnic cleansing - when non-pedigree dogs are unceremoniously dumped by their owners when a new regulation encouraging the production of pure breeds comes in, it leads to a warlike, man versus dog war. One young girl, adoring of her mutt, is separated by him by her father, but she proves to be the one innocent that can face these dogs, led by her faithful mongrel friend, Hagen. This film undoubtably disturbs, but its daring and very scale, breaking every rule anybody in showbiz ever devised about working with animals and children, makes it a must watch - well, that is, if you have the stomach for it. / Kate Coleman
