ART Make Ev­ery Show Like It’s Your Last Cen­tre for Con­tem­po­rary Art, 10-12 Ar­tillery St Un­til Nov 29 cca-derry-lon­don­derry.org Ryan Gan­der is an English artist of grow­ing in­ter­na­tional re­pute. He’s also a wheel­chair user, lend­ing him a per­spec­tive that his work some­times ad­dresses. As he notes, he is a con­cep­tual artist and comes up with ideas that are car­ried out by oth­ers. His out­put (right) ranges widely from sim­ple graph­ics to mar­ble sculp­tures, photographs to films but al­ways with a quizzi­cal, ir­rev­er­ent edge. This tour­ing show, the first in Ire­land, mar­shals a num­ber of his key projects from the last decade or so. AD THE­ATRE

Deep

The Dock, Leitrim 8.30pm Even against the eu­phoric beat of Ray­mond Scannell’s Deep, which com­bines a fic­ti­tious fam­ily story with a true his­tory of Cork’s hard house venue Sir Henry’s, you hear re­veal­ingly blue notes. “You re­mem­ber it. You were there,” says his nar­ra­tor, con­jur­ing vivid images of bliss­ful op­ti­mism. Not every­body par­tied through the boom to bust years, and Scannell’s ab­sorb­ing piece avoids nostal­gia. In­stead it looks at a na­tion in tran­si­tion and won­ders – of friend­ship, fam­ily and so­ci­ety – can any­thing last?
