Happy Sunday, from Collaborations
Disappearing as quickly as they’d come, we say goodbye to another week of shows in the Collaborations Festival – no more diamonds and lights; no more feather boas and porno mags; no more 7 ft crosses and bras … and I thought the opening weekend had some odd goings on! But fear not, we still have heaps of excitement coming up as we scurry into the final week of the festival.
Not wanting to take our Sunday ‘day of rest’ too literally, we have a rehearsed reading of new play Cornerstones by Bairbre Guilfoyle at 2.30pm today in the Main Space (and it’s Free!) Cornerstones started life as a novel, and began it’s transformation into theatre with the performance of a short scene in last year’s festival. Since then, Bairbre has continued to develop the play with director Claire Maguire and the cast; so we look forward to seeing how it has grown over the year!
This evening at 8pm, making use of our gorgeous Boys School space, we have 3 x Distilled: a fantastic and unique collaboration between Poets and Sound Artists, curated by Annemarie Ni Churreain. Nothing like a bit of poetry on a Sunday Evening!
…And while you’re in Smock Alley being the little culture vultures that you are, why not pop upstairs to The Banquet Hall to have a look at our Art Exhibition with Paintings, Photography, and Installations from Ste Murray, Claire Dooley, Gearoid O’Dea, Niamh Hanaford, and Glenn Keelan. It’s a gorgeous space at the best of times, but now the work on the walls can live up to the ceiling and windows!
