Scannán faoi dhá phíosa éadaigh ag análú agus iad crochta sa doras ag Mainistir Mhuc Rois, i gCill Airne. Tá ceangal déanta idir neamh agus talamh sa fiseán seo. Dhein Una feilt as síoda, snáth agus olann daite le plandaí agus d'fhill sí ar an mainistir chun scannánú a dhéanamh orthu san áit a spreag iad. Tá an fuaimrian bunaithe ar análú na n-éadach agus iad á mbogadh - le guth agus anáil Úna chomh maith le fuaimeanna ón nádúr. (Ceamaradóireacht: Kristi Collins) .

A film which features two pieces of 'breathing' fabric suspended from a doorway in Muckross Abbey in Killarney. There is a connection made here between heaven and earth. Úna created felt from silk, thread and wool coloured with plant dyes and brought them to the monastery to film them in the place that inspired them. The soundtrack is based on the 'breathing' of the fabric as it moves, with the voice and breath of Úna herself interspersed with the sounds of nature. (Camerawork: Kristi Collins)

Píosa gluaiseachta fileata á chur i láthair ag buíon daoine cróga tréitheacha ó chomharsanacht Chorca Dhuibhne agus iad treoraithe ag an ealaíontóir rince Maria Svensson atá ina Rinceoir Cónaitheach in An Lab. Déanann an píosa seo iniúchadh ar an gcoincheap de 'bheith ag a baile', ag baint feidhm as téacs, ceol agus gluaiseacht fhileata chun ceisteanna a chur fé cad is brí le bheith ag a baile nó an féidir coirpriú a dhéanamh ar a leithéid de rud/coincheap. Tá an píosa seo chomh mór céanna ina mholadh do agus leis na rinceoirí is atá sé ina mholadh don lucht féachana, toisc nach ligeann na ceisteanna dúinn staonadh ón machnamh riamh.

Tá tréimhse cónaitheach Maria Svensson in An Lab maoinithe ag An Comhairle Ealaíne agus Comhairle Contae Chiarraí. I gcomhair a thuilleadh eolais fé Maria agus a cuid oibre, féach www.rootedbeing.net .

'The Proposal' first premiered at Féile na Bealtaine April 2017 and is back to An Lab for two more performances this summer. The poetic movement piece is performed by a group of courageous and gifted souls from the West Kerry locality. Crafted and guided by dance artist Maria Svensson, currently Dancer in Residence in An Lab. The piece explores the notion of 'belonging' using text, music and poetic movement, asking questions about what it means to belong and if it is possible to embody such a thing or idea.

Casulaties of Convenience

Taismigh Éascaíochta / Casualties of Convenience
Taispeántas Grianghrafadóireacht / Photographic Exhibition:
le/by Siobhán de Paor agus/and Jindřich Staněk

7 – 30 Meitheamh / 7 – 30 June
Agus iad bailithe leis an gcarn mór brúscair plaistigh a chothaigh féile bia an bhaile, thosnaigh grúpa beag gníomhaithe pobail sa Daingean feachtas chun úsáid soitheach plaisteach aon uaire a laghdú. Ní rabhadar ag súil leis an easpa eolais a léiríodh faoi géarchéim an truailliú plaistigh sa Daingean, baile a bhfuil a ghéilleagar ag brath cuid mhór ar chaomhnú a thimpeallachta mara.
Agus sinn ag glanadh tráígh amháin lá, cuireadh an cheist: an mbeadh athrú ar an easpa spéise dá mba rud é gur daoine seachas ainmhithe a bhí á chaitheamh i dtír agus iad tachtaithe nó múchta? B'shin mar a cuireadh síol an tionscadail seo, Taismigh Éascaíochta. Deonaigh dáréag ghníomhaí áitiúil a gcorp a nochtadh ar mhaithe le nochtadh an fhírinne faoi thruailliú plaisteach inár bhfarraigí. An tortha ealaíne ar seo ná cnuasach cumhachtach grianghrafanna a chuireann an matalang seo – atá tite amach inár bhfarraigí de bharr cultúr na héascaíochta – ina luí ar dhaoine ar shlí úr.

Against the mountains of plastic waste created at the town's food festival, a small group of community activists began a campaign to reduce disposable plastics in Dingle. In a town whose economy relies on the preservation of its marine environment, they did not anticipate the lack of awareness around the plastic pollution crisis.
On one beach clean, the question was asked, would people change their habits if it were humans washing up suffocated and strangled? Thus the Casualties of Convenience project was born. 12 local campaigners agreed to expose themselves to expose the truth about plastic pollution in our oceans. The result is a powerful collection that brings home in a new way the calamity that has befallen our oceans as a result of our culture of convenience.

'Idir / between places' le / by Kate Buckley

Idir

An Gailearaí Beag/ The Small Gallery

Iniúchadh pearsanta ar shaol caite idir dhá áit.

Déanainn an bailiúchán saothar seo iniúchadh ar an 'idirspás' a chónaím ann mar imirceach. Ar aon dul le gach éinne a mhaireann in áit eile seachas a áit dhúchais, uaireanta bím ag a baile ann agus uaireanta is stráinséir ann mé.

Thárla go raibh sé lárnach do chruthú an bhailiúchán saothar seo go ndéanfainn mé féin 'a chur', ag breith ar mo chuimhní agus ag léiriú mo shaol féin mar atá.

Cruthaíodh an saothar seo le ceithre bliana anuas – cuimsíonn sé léarscáileanna, leabhair agus píosaí líníochta a déanadh sa dá thír.

A personal exploration of life between two places.

This body of work explores the 'between space' I inhabit as a migrant. Like all who live away from their home place, sometimes I belong and sometimes I'm an outsider.

'Placing myself' became the key to this body of work, capturing my memory and presenting my reality.

This work has been created over the last four years- it includes maps, books, and drawings made in both countries.

Léiriúchán é Kolga atá curtha i láthair ag Myllyteatteri, compántas amharclannaíochta ó Helsinki san Fhionlann. Tá an léiriú seo bunaithe ar dhán de chuid an fhile Fhionlannaigh chomhaimseartha, Tommi Parko. Is í Miira Sippola an Stiúrthóir, bean atá ina cuairteoir rialta í ar an mBlascaod Mór agus ar An Daingean le fiche bliain anuas. Tá sé mar aidhm aici ina cuid saothair aigne an duine a chur i láthair ar an stáitse tré mheán choirp na n-aisteoirí, ceol agus íomhánna, maraon le loighic fhochomhfhiosach. D'éirigh go hiontach léi san a bhaint amach sa léiriúchán seo.

Tháinig ionspioráid an dáin ó áit arb ainm di 'Kolga ', ar imeall oirthear na hEorpa, áit stairiúil mar a bhuaileann an Mhuir Bhailt leis an míntír. Áit í a mheallann daoine ar thóir suaimhnis; mar is ionann le Corca Dhuibhne, atá ar imeall na hEorpa féin, agus atá mar thearmann do mhórán daoine. Tá brí agus atmaisféar faoi leith sa léiriúchán seo, le híomhánna a raghaidh i bhfeidhm ort agus dearadh solais agus fuaime a bhfanfaidh id' chuimhne ar feadh i bhfad.

Tugadh cuireadh do Kolga bheith páirteach in ócáid Duais Teresa Pomodoro i mBealtaine 2017. Feicfear é ag Féile na Bealtaine roimhe sin.

Kolga is a performance presented by Myllyteatteri (Mill Theatre) from Helsinki in Finland. The performance combines theatre and circus, jazz and folk music, to create a stage interpretation of a poem by contemporary Finnish poet, Tommi Parkko. Kolga is directed by Miira Sippola who has been a regular visitor to Dingle and the Great Blasket Island over the past twenty years. In her work, she aims to portray the human mind on stage by combining the physicality of the actors, music and visuality, with an unconscious logic. She has succeeded brilliantly in doing so in this production.

The poem is inspired by a place called Kolga, located on the eastern edge of Europe, a place rich in history. It is a place where land and the Baltic sea meet. Kolga is a place where one goes in search of peace. There are resonances here for the inhabitants of the Dingle peninsula, which is on the edge of Europe itself, and a sanctuary for many.

Kolga offers a meaningful and atmospheric production with striking imagery and memorable sound and lighting design - a state of mind on stage. Kolga has been invited to participate in the Teresa Pomodoro Prize event, in Milan, Italy in May 2017. Before that it will be seen at Féile na Bealtaine.

Píosa gluaiseachta fileata á chur i láthair ag buíon daoine cróga tréitheacha ó chomharsanacht Chorca Dhuibhne agus iad treoraithe ag an ealaíontóir rince Maria Svensson atá ina rinceoir cónaitheach in An Lab. Déanann an píosa seo iniúchadh ar an gcoincheap de 'bheith ag a baile', ag baint feidhm as téacs, ceol agus gluaiseacht fhileata chun ceisteanna a chur fé cad is brí le bheith ag a baile nó an féidir coirpriú a dhéanamh ar a leithéid de rud/coincheap. Tá an píosa seo chomh mór céanna ina mholadh do agus leis na rinceoirí is atá sé ina mholadh don lucht féachana, toisc nach ligeann na ceisteanna dúinn staonadh ón machnamh riamh.

A poetic movement piece performed by a group of courageous and gifted souls from the West Kerry locality. Crafted and guided by dance artist Maria Svensson, currently dancer in residence in An Lab. The piece explores the notion of 'belonging' using text, music and poetic movement, asking questions about what it means to belong and if it is possible to embody such a thing or idea. The piece is as much a proposal to and by the performers as it is to the audience, as the questions never seem to let us stop pondering.

Is gearrdhráma nua aimseartha é seo bunaithe ar shean-scéal béaloidis ón mBlascaod a bhfuil leagain dó ar fáil ó Pheig Sayers agus ón mBab Feiritéar. Scéal é ina bhfuil bean tí, ina haonar, á cosaint féin, i ndorchadas na hoíche, ar chailleacha feargacha an oilc. Fuair an chéad léiriú den dráma seo, a bhí mar chuid d'Éigse an Bhlascaoid sa bhFómhar seo caite, ard mholadh ón lucht féachana. Is í Marina Ní Dhubháin an léiritheoir. Is é Billí Mag Fhloinn atá i bhfeighil na gcultacha agus Máire Bhreathnach atá i bhfeighil an cheoil. Leanfaidh an dráma ar feadh ceathrú uair a chloig is beidh plé gairid ina dhiaidh.

This play is a modern presentation of the old folktale from the Blasket Islands which is based on versions from Peig Sayers and Bab Feiritéar. In this story, we see a housewife, alone at night, defending herself against scheming and raging hags. This play was first staged to great acclaim at Éigse an Bhlascaoid last autumn. Marina Ní Dhubháin is the director. Billí Mag Fhloinn designed and made the costumes and Máire Bhreathnach is the musical director. The play lasts a quarter of an hour and will be followed by a short discussion.

Foinn, Rainn agus Suantraithe ón Anallód / Airs, Verses and Lullabies from Bygone Times le / by Helen Davies, Aibhlín McCrann agus / and Áine Moynihan.

Radharc ar cheol ré na seanchruitirí, fite fuaite le filíocht mhealltach an reacaire.

A taste of music from the era of the old harpists, intertwined with the enchanting poetry of the bard.

Tá seanaithne ar Helen Davies agus ar Aibhlín McCrann mar chruitirí den scoth in Éirinn agus thar lear. Is fada iad beirt ag seinm le chéile agus is iomaí tionscnamh cruite atá curtha i gcrích acu i gcomhpháirtíocht lena chéile idir leabhair ceoil a fhoilsiú agus imeachtaí cruite a reáchtáil. Bhí baint acu beirt le bunú Fhéile Idirnáisiúnta na Cruite, An Chúirt Chruitireachta a bunaíodh chun athghiniúint agus forbairt na cruite a thacú breis is triocha bliain ó shin. Is Breatnach í Helen Davies ó dhúchas a bhfuil dlúthbhaint aici le ceol Shaun Davey. Lonnaithe sa Danmhairg, oibrionn sí lena fear céile, an trumpadóir agus cumadóir Palle Mikkeloborg.

Is tráchtaire aitheanta cruite í Aibhlín McCrann. Ceapadh í le déanaí mar Chathaoirleach ar eagraíocht nuabhunaithe, Cruit Éireann, a bheidh mar chuspóir aici an rannpháirteachas a chothú le páirtithe leasmhara na cruite in Éirinn agus i gcéin.

File, aisteoir proifisiúnta agus stiúrthóir amharclainne í Áine Moynihan. Is fada í ag plé leis na healaíona mar chleachtóir agus mar eagraí imeachtaí cultúir náisiúnta agus idirnáisiúnta. Bhunaigh sí ionad chultúrtha An Lab sa Daingean chun deis a thabhairt d'aisteoirí agus d'ealaíontóirí an cheantair saothar ardchaighdeánach a chur i láthair tré mheán na Gaeilge. Tá leabhar filíochta dá cuid, Canals of Memory, foilsithe ag Doghouse Press.

Helen Davies and Aibhlín McCrann have long been recognized as excellent harpists in Ireland and abroad. They have been playing together for many years and have initiated many projects together, including publishing books of music and organizing harping events. They were both involved in founding the International Harp Festival, the gathering of harpists set up to revive and develop the harping tradition more than thirty years ago. Helen Davies, originally from Wales, is closely involved in the music of Shaun Davey. Based in Denmark, she collaborates with her husband, the trumpeter and composer Palle Mikkeloborg.

Aibhlín McCrann is a noted commentator on harping. She was recently appointed as Chairperson of a newly established organization, Cruit Éireann, which has the aim of increasing participation with stakeholders of the harping tradition in Ireland and abroad.

Aoine 3ú Marta @ 7.30in / Friday 3rd March @ 7.30pm

Titeann an Fhéile Mhártain ar an 11ú Samhain, agus ba nós coitianta in Éirinn tráth ná fuil a tharraingt in onóir don naomh. Bean a' tí de ghnáth a dhein an marú, ar leic an dorais le titim na hoíche ar an 10ú, agus ligtí an fhuil titim ar an tairseach, agus i gceithre cúinne an tí. Uaireanta d'úsáidtí an fhuil chun muintir an tí a bhaisteadh ar an éadain. Chreidtí go raibh an fhuil seo beannaithe, agus gur choimeád sí daoine slán ón mbás, galar agus olcas i rith an gheimhridh. Bhiodh cosc ar rotha a chasadh ar an lá seo chomh maith, agus staon daoine ó aon saghas oibre le capall is cairt, tuirne nó muileann. Is iomaí finscéal a léiríonn an droththoradh a bhí ar dhaoine a d'imigh in aghaidh an naoimh, agus a chur roth ag casadh ar an 11ú. D'fhán na nósanna seo beo i bhformhór na tire go dtí an 20ú aois, agus in áiteanna áirithe san iarthar go dtí an 21ú. Baineann an íobairt seo le seanfhéile na Samhna, ach bogadh ar aghaidh é go dtí Lá 'le Mártain sna meánaoiseanna. Pléitear an t-ábhar suimiúil seo sa leabhar nua le Billy Mag Fhloinn, darbh ainm 'Blood Rite, The Feast of St. Martin in Ireland'. Seolfaidh an t-iriseoir is béaloideasóir Seán Mac an tSíthigh an leabhar sa Lab, An Daingean ar an 3ú Marta ar 7.30 in. Fáílte Roimh Chách.

Beidh an leabhar ar fáil i siopaí leabhar an Daingin, no ar www.tradition.

The Feast of St. Martin falls on the 11th of November, and used to be celebrated throughout most parts of Ireland in an unusual way. Householders, usually led by the woman of the house, would stand on the doorstep at sundown on the eve of the feast, and kill an animal or bird by slitting its throat with a knife. They used to then spill the blood on the threshold, and let drops fall from the dying animal in the four corners of the house. In some places, they would even anoint the members of the family on the forehead with the blood. This, they believed, kept people safe from disease, death and evil spirits during the coming winter. The custom persisted long into the 20th century in many places, and even into the 21st in some parts of the west. People also believed that it was wrong to turn wheels of any kind on St. Martin's Day, and that great punishments would fall on anyone who yoked a horse and cart, turned a spinning wheel, or worked a mill. The sacrifice and shedding of blood on this day was once part of the ancient festival of Samhain, but changed in the medieval period to the new date of November 11th. This fascinating topic is discussed in Billy Mag Fhloinn's new book, Blood Rite: The Feast of St. Martin in Ireland, which will be launched by journalist and folklorist Seán Mac an tSíthigh in An Lab, Dingle on March 3rd at 7.30pm. All are welcome.

'Bhí sé de phribhléid agam bheith i láthair i Scoil Dhún Chaoin ar Oíche Ghobnait le déanaí nuair a cuireadh an léiriú de 'Falla Trump' ar stáitse don gcéad uair. Agus geallaim díbh gur chóir go mbeadh Oscar bainte amach acu! Táimid sa Lab thar a bheith sásta go bhfuil siad ag teacht chugainn ar an 9ú lá. Idir greann, Gaoluinn agus fiú blaiseadh den Spáinnis, is fiú go mór é d'fheiscint.

Ní fada go mbeidh sí ann.' (ÁM)

'It was a privilege to be in Scoil Dhún Chaoin on St. Gobnait's Night recently, when 'Falla Trump' was staged for the first time. They deserve an Oscar! We in An Lab are delighted that they are coming to us on the 9th. With humour, fine Irish and even a spot of Spanish, it's well worth seeing. The lively tunes of Ceoltóirí Óga an Bhuailtín will set your toes tapping, while you will think you are in the National Concert Hall when you hear Ava Ní Dhufaigh (10 years of age) on the piano. It won't be long until she's there! (ÁM).

It is variously a feeling, a mood, a nameless threat, a person, a lover, a boss man, a mob, and, of course, the Devil himself… it can be used as both hex and counter hex, poison and antidote, pain and relief. Most importantly, the blues is both the cause of song, and song itself'. So wrote Edward Comentale in Sweet Air: American Popular Song.

Tonight, as part of An Fhéile Bheag Filíochta Poetry Festival, IMRAM explores both blues poetry and song. Here are classic blues songs by Bessie Smith, John Lee Hooker, Blind Willie Mc Tell and Bille Holiday; and poems by Langston Hughes, Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones) and others. Translated by poets Liam Ó Muirthile and Gabriel Rosenstock, they will be performed by the poets themselves and by the Mary Ryan Blues Group, featuring Dick Farrely on guitar; Dave Fleming on bass; and Tim Creedon on percussion. This performance will feature screen projections by Margaret Lonergan.

Chun ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar an eisiúint fhisiciúil dhéanach beidh an banna de sheachtar ag tabhairt fé chamchuairt ar chúig cinn des na hionaid cheoil is uathaíocha agus is cluthara in Éirinn.

Contemporary Irish trad innovators Ensemble Ériu are hitting the road to spread the good word – or in this case notes – of their stunning second album "Imbas". Released digitally in June, "Imbas" is now finally available on CD and vinyl, and to celebrate the belated physical release the 7 piece band will perform in five of Ireland's most unique and intimate venues across the country. On Wednesday 16.11.2016 they bring their music to the home of their fiddler Jeremy Spencer for the very first time, performing in the beautiful An Lab, An Daingean.

Moladh criticeoirí do Ensemble Éiriu / Critical praise for Ensemble Éiriu:

"They are an extraordinary band, big band, big line up, lots of instruments, lots of imagination, all sorts going on … they are something special." - John Kelly, RTÉ Lyric FM "Very developed, soulful and meditative music from an impressive musical intelligence." - Tony MacMahon.

""Intensely cerebral, Ensemble Ériú's second album captures the lateral-thinking septet as they continue to forge new ground." – ****Siobhán Long, The Irish Times

"Imbas is an Irish word that translates as "creative inspiration", and there's plenty of it striking in the hands of the seven-piece band"Release of the week – Nialler9

"Ensemble Ériu's distinctive sound constantly express the band's deep-rooted appreciation and love for traditional music while the band simultaneously seek to furrow new and intriguing paths in contemporary music circles." Mark Carry, Fractured Air

"On this exquisitely recorded collection, Ériu succeed where others have failed before by successfully entangling the repetition of Irish melodies with some of the tropes of contemporary, minimalist composition." – Ian Lamont, Totally Dublin

Ó Chathair Chorcaí é Ger Wolfe ó dhúchas ach é ag cur faoi anois i gCarraig a' Phúca, idir Máigh Chromtha agus Gaeltacht Mhúscraí. Bíonn sé ag saothrú mar scríbhneoir amhrán, mar cheoltóir agus mar amhránaí. Tá seacht n-albaim cheoil nuachumtha eisithe aige le fiche bliain anuas, an cheann is déanaí ná 'I Have Been Loved'. Casann sé amhráin Gaeilge chomh maith agus tá meas mór aige ar an dtraidisiúin. Ceiliúrtha, smaointeach, agus neamhspleách, leanann Ger leis ag treabhadh a fhóid fhéin tré thírdreach cheol na hÉireann, gan aon aird aige ar nóisean ná ar fhaisean. Dílis dá cheird, insíonn sé a scéal féin, ina ghuth éagsúil féin. Is scríbhneoir liricí, file is cumadóir den scoth é Ger, a sheineann mórán gléasanna ceoil. Is ansa leis an guth daonna. Bíodh sé ina cheoltóir aonarach, nó i dteannta a chomrádaithe cheoil 'The New Skylarks', is ceoltóir é Ger atá ar a shuaimhneas leis féin agus leis an domhan uilig. Beidh a ochtú albam, 'The Lark of Mayfield', a tharraingíonn ar scoth a chuid saothair thaifeadta go dtí seo, a eisiúint in Earrach 2017. www.gerwolfe.com

Working as a songwriter, musician and performer, Ger Wolfe has released seven albums of original material over the last twenty years, his latest entitled 'I Have Been Loved'. Celebratory, reflective, independent in mind and nature, Ger continues to plough his own furrow through the Irish musical landscape, heedless of fad or fashion. True to the art of songwriting, he tells his own story as only he could, in his own unique voice. Ger is a fine lyricist, poet and composer all rolled into one, a multi-instrumentalist and a lover of the human voice. Whether as a solo performer or with any or all of his musical comrades 'The New Skylarks', Ger is a performer at ease with himself and the world. His eighth album, ' The Lark of Mayfield', a compilation drawing on his previous 7 releases, will be launched in Spring 2017. www.gerwolfe.com ________________________________________

Scotia Ensemble
Bunaíodh an grúpa seo de naonúr ceoltóirí gairmiúla lonnaithe i gCiarraí go luath i 2016. Tá forbairt an cheoil chlasaicigh agus oiliúint an cheoil i gCiarraí mar aidhm acu. Tá ceolchoirmeacha á chur i láthair acu i mbliana agus iad ag saothrú i dtreo Fhéile Cheol Aragail Scotia a thabharfaidh ceoltóirí óga agus ceoltóirí amaitéaracha le chéile ó áiteanna éagsúla timpeall an chontae. Anuas ar san, tá tionscnamh meantóireachta idir lámha ag an ngrúpa faoi láthair, a thugann deis do líon beag ceoltóirí óga den scoth ó Chiarraí cleachtadh a dhéanamh ina dteannta agus seinnt ar stáitse leo, sa tslí is go mbeidh taithí luachmhar á fháil acu. Seo an tarna sraith de cheolchoirmeacha acu agus cuirfidh siad clár cheol aragail i láthair ina mbeidh saothar Bach, Corelli agus Vivaldi le cloisint. www.facebook.com/scotiaensemble

Comprised of nine professional musicians based in Kerry, the Scotia Ensemble was set up in early 2016 with the aim of promoting classical music performance and music education throughout Kerry. This year they are presenting live performances and working towards a Scotia Chamber Music Festival that will bring young and amateur musicians together from various parts of the County. Additionally, the ensemble are currently running a Mentoring Initiative where a small number of gifted young Kerry musicians have the opportunity to rehearse and perform with them and gain invaluable experience. This series of concerts will be their second and will present a programme of Baroque music including pieces by Bach, Corelli, Vivaldi. www.facebook.com/scotiaensemble

Bálua le/by Áine Ní Chíobháin.
(Focal nua-chumtha a chiallaíonn solas ar an mbá)
(A made up word implying light in the bay)

Tionscnamh ealaíne is ea é seo mar gheall ar ghealas sa doircheacht. Feictear bláthanna na mara, cóiméid agus réalta, crainn dhraíochta, méarnáil ag glioscarnach fén uisce agus a thuilleadh. Tá na pictiúirí bunaithe ar an gcoincheap gur féidir linn sólás a bhaint amach nuair atá an saol bun os cionn agus nach gá ach na rudaí timpeall orainn a thabhairt fé ndeara. Machnamh is ea é seo ar an nádúr agus sinn ar fad ag ullmhú i gcomhar dhúluachair na bliana. .
This is an artistic project about light in the darkness. Maritime flowers, comets and stars, magic trees, phosphorescence sparkling under the water and more, are seen. The pictures are based on the concept that we can find solace in our chaotic lives through simply paying attention to our surroundings. This is a meditation on nature as we prepare to enter the dark time of the year. .

Ag Mapáil an Dorchadais / Mapping the Dark
le/by Dervla O'Flaherty.


Sa taispeántas líníochtaí agus pictiúirí péinteálta seo pléann Dervla le smaointe agus le téamaí a ghabhann le háiteanna, leis an tsamhlaíocht agus le rudaí anaithnide. Tá an saothar seo bunaithe ar thréimhsí taistil a thug sí san Ind, san Ungáir agus san Íoslainn. Nuair a tháimid in áit nua don gcéad uair tagann an tsamhlaíocht ar barra ag nascadh gnéithe coitianta le hábhair neamh-choitianta. Tá spéis ag Dervla sna slite a dheinimid léarscáiliú ar áiteanna nua.

In this exhibition of drawings and paintings Dervla deals with thoughts and themes relating to places, to the imagination and to things unknown. This material is based on periods she spent travelling in India, in Hungary and in Iceland. When we first encounter a new place imagination comes to the fore connecting the usual with the unusual. Dervla is interested in the ways in which we map out new places.

Néalta Suain / Clouds of Sleep le/by Zoe Uí Fhaoláin

"Go mbeidh néalta codlata tré do néalta suain" (beannacht traidisiúnta Gaelach).
Tar éis blianta de neamhchodladh titeann rudaí aite amach; éiríonn teorainn doléir. Eascraíonn eolas as géarchéim. Roinneann Zoë a scéal, ag baint úsáid as rince, focail labhartha agus teilgeadh físeáin.

"May there be clouds of happiness in your clouds of sleep" (Traditional Irish blessing).
After years of insomnia, strange things happen; there is a blurring of boundaries. Out of crisis, comes learning. Using dance, spoken word and video projection, Zoë shares her story.

Is tabhealaíontóir í Ilaria Delcane a úsáideann meáin éagsúla leithéid físealaíon, drámaíocht, rince agus amhráin. Forbraíonn sí saghasanna éagsúla saothar, ach iad I gcónaí ceangailte lena turas pearsanta féin.

When the touch of the soul is visible
When the illiterate heart learns slowly how to speak
When the sound of your body is manifested
Then and only then the snow will be free to flow....
Ilaria Delcane is a performing artist using different media such as art, theatre, dance and songs. She develops different kinds of creations always connecting with her personal journey.

A bilingual reading by Diarmuid de Faoite with musical accompaniment from Nuala Ní Chanainn

'Seacht mBua an Éirí Amach' a scríobh Pádraic Ó Conaire; an tOchtú Bua a thug Seosamh Mac Grianna ar a shaothar ach is cinnte gur naoi n-inseacht a bheidh ag Diarmuid de Faoite sa léamh dhátheangach seo a chaithfidh solas ar chúlra na gcarachtar, ar chuid de mhórphearsa na scéalta agus ar réabhlóid an Chonairigh féin. Ceol álainn agus amhráin bríomhara na linne sin leis an amhránaí agus an veidhleadóir Nuala Ní Chanainn. Fíricí, bréaga agus deis agat do ladar féin a chur sa scéal. Beir leat do bhua.

When Michael Collins alighted on the quays in Dublin following his release from Frongoch, writer Pádraic Ó Conaire was there to greet him. His purpose: to flog his new draft collection of stories, Seacht mBua an Éirí Amach/ Seven Attributes of the Easter Rising, to a (formerly) captive readership! Diarmuid de Faoite – writer, actor, and translator of Seacht mBua an Éirí Amach – reads from his own draft of Ó Conaire's book (recently listed inThe Irish Times/Royal Irish Academy's 'Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks'), illuminating the stories with tales of his own. Diarmuid will be accompanied by singer and musician Nuala Ní Chanainn, who illuminates the tales beautifully with the song and music of the period.

Walking Routes and Mountain Ranges an exhibition of paintings by Cathal Póirtéir
á seoladh ag / launched by Carol Cronin

Satharn, 9 Iúil @ 6.30in, An Gailearaí Beag Saturday, 9 July @ 6.30pm, The Small Gallery
Rithfidh an taispeántas seo go dtí an 26ú Iúil. / This exhibition will run until the 26th July.

Is é seo an ceathrú taispeántais aonair ag Cathal Póirtéir le trí bliana anuas agus an chéad cheann aige sa Daingean. Díríonn bunús a chuid oibre ar áilleacht agus ar dhrámatúlacht na timpeallachta, go háirithe ar gharbhchríocha chósta an Atlantaigh in iar-dheisceart na hÉireann. Ó am go chéile, déanann sé pórtráidí de chairde i saol na litríochta agus an cheoil. Tírdhreachanna den chuid is mó a bhíonn aige agus is mar sin atá sa taispeántas seo 'Rianta Siúil agus Raonta Sléibhe'. Is léiriú iad na híomhanna atá anseo ar an dúil atá aige a bheith ag spáisteoireacht ar chnoic agus i ngleannta, i gcongar is i gcéin. Is iomaí tréimhse caite aige ag siúil sna raonta arda sin idir an Iodáil agus an Ostair nó idir an Spáinn agus an Fhrainc. Is minicí a bhfad é ar na slite siúil i gCorca Dhuibhne, in Iarthar Chorcaí agus i gCill Mhantáin, agus tá radharcann tíre agus farraige ó na ceantair sin uilig ar taispeáint aige anseo.
Péinteireacht réalach go maith a thagann ón ealaíontóir seo ach fágann a stíl phéinteireachta a rian agus a phearsantacht féin ar gach aon phíosa, idir a láimhseáil péinte, úsaid dathanna agus éifeacht na n-íomhanna ina n-iomláine.
Sa bhliain 2015, d'iarr teach foilsitheoireachta sa Spáinn air maisiú a dhéanamh do leabhar filíochta, Bean Árainn le Máire Áine Ní Dhireáin. Tharraing sé chuige gualach agus páipéar agus tá dhá cheann de na híomhánna sin le feiceáil anseo.

This is Cathal Poirtéir's fourth solo exhibition in the last three years and his first in Dingle. The essence of his work is the beauty and drama of the environment, particularly the ragged coastline of the Atlantic in south-west Ireland. He occasionally does portraits of his friends in the worlds of literature and music. He mostly concentrates on landscapes, and this is the case in this exhibition, 'Walking Routes and Mountain Ranges'. These images reflect his love of hiking in the mountains and valleys both at home and abroad. He has spent many periods walking in the high ranges between Italy and Austria and between Spain and France. Far more often he is found on the slopes of Corca Dhuibhne, West Cork and Wicklow. This painter is faithfully realist for the most part, but his style of painting – the handling of the paint, the use of colours and the effect of the images – leaves the clear mark of his personality on each piece. In 2015 a publishing house in Spain asked him to illustrate a poetry collection, Bean Árainn by Máire Áine Ní Dhireáin. For these works he used charcoal and paper and two of these images are included here.

Labhraíonn Fungie / Fungie Speaks book cover

Tá dán nua foilsithe ag an bhfile Duibhneach Dairena Ní Chinnéide. Píosa aithrithiseoireachta as Gaelainn agus Béarla isea LABHRAÍONN FUNGIE - FUNGIE SPEAKS a dheineann ceiliúradh ar dheilf cáiliúil an Daingin. Tá sé eisithe mar eagrán teoranta sínithe ag Ponc Press atá ina litirphreas bunaithe i nDaingean Uí Chúis, le léaráidí ón ealaíontóir áitiúil Áine Ní Chíobháin. Sampla álainn atá sa leabhar ar fhoilsitheoireacht ealaíonta agus glacadh leis ag an Art Book Fair i mBaile Átha Cliath le gairid.

Is é seo an t-ochtú leabhar filíochta ó pheann Dairena. 'Sé dúirt Liam Carson, Stiúrthóir IMRAM fuithi: "Tháinig mise ar shaothar Dairena Ní Chinnéide don chéad uair is me ag amharc ar Ardán ar TG4. Baineadh siar asam nuair a chuala mé í ag léamh. Bhí sé soiléir ón dtús go raibh file fíor-láidir agus neamh-eaglach tagtha inar measc. Tá a cuid dánta ag tarraingt as tobar an dúchais agus tá an tseantraidisíuín, béaloideas agus stair áitiúil lárnach iontu – ach ní h-ionann sín agus a rá go bhfuil Dairena ag amharc siar; tá a saothar úrnua agus nua-aoiseach amach is amach. Tá na dánta snasta, críochnaithe, déanta. Níl focal amú le fáil iontu, tá siad teann, tá siad daingean ar na cosa, seasann siad ar an leathanach. Ach, más draíochtúil ar an leathanach í is draíochtúla fós beo ar an stáitse í Dairena. Tagann a saothar beo ar an ardán, meallann sí a lucht éisteacha leis an liodán iontach atá cruthaithe aici."

Fís ealaíontóir isea Áine Ní Chíobháin atá lonnaithe sa Daingean agus a chruthaíonn a píosaí ealaíne le hionspráid ón timpeallacht maguaird uirthi. Tá céim onórach aici ó Choláiste Ealaíne an Crawford, Corcaigh. Tá a cuid ealaíne i mbailiúcháin HETAC, CIT, Comhairle Contae Chiarraí. Roghnaíodh a cuid oibre mar chuid den RHA Annual & Impressions Biennale agus tá iliomad sparántachtaí, tionscadail agus tréimhsí cónaithe bronnta uirthi.

05.12.15 @ 1.30 OV sa Lab Conor Walsh

An Lab

Is cumadóir íoslaghdach pianó agus leictreacústach ó Bhéal Átha na Muice, Co. Muigh Eo é Conor Walsh. Thosnaigh sé ag cumadhceoil agus é ina dhéagóir, ag cumadh píosaí gearra don bpianó ar shean-uirlis atá suite i seomra fáiltithe óstáin atá ann le céad bliain. Ag tógaint ionspráide ó thaobh tíre fiaine Muigh Eo in Iarthar na hÉireann, tá saothair Conor lom ach suaimhneasach, dubhach ach dóchasach. Tarraingíonn a aistí ceoil ar réimse seánraí ó íoslaghdach go IDM, ó Chopin go Tool agus cuirtear iad i gcompráid le ceol leithéidí Hauschka, Aphex Twin, Nils Frahm agus Philip Glass. Eisíodh a chéad EP, The Front, ar lipéad Ensemble Records i nDeireadh Fómhair i mbliana.

Conor Walsh is a minimalist piano and electro acoustic composer from Swinford, Co. Mayo, Ireland. He began composing as a teenager, writing short piano pieces on an old piano that sits in the reception room of a hundred year old hotel. Inspired by the wild Mayo landscapes in the West of Ireland, Conor's work is dramatically stark yet soothing, melancholic yet hopeful. His compositions draw from a variety of genre's that span Minimalist to IDM, Chopin to Tool and have been likened to the music of Hauschka, Aphex Twin, Nils Frahm and Philip Glass. He released his debut EP, The Front, on Ensemble Records in October 2015.

06.12.15 @ 2.30 OV sa Lab Skipper's Alley

An Lab

Is grúpa seachtair iad Skipper's Alley a bhfuil a leagan bríomhar den gceol traidisiúnta tar éis mórán molta a tharraingt ó chriticeoirí. Léimeann an grúpa ó amhránaíocht ar an sean nós le tionlacan cláirsigh go dtí dreasanna fiaine ríleanna, ag cruthú fuaime ar a ghlaoigh David Kidman 'scintillating' agus 'a model of tender delicacy' san iris ceoil The Living Tradition. Tharraing Skipper's Alley suntas ar dtús i 2013 ar bhuachaint Corn Loic Raison ag Festival Interceltique de Lorient sa Bhriotáin, gradam a bhí buaite cheana ag leithéidí Danú, Clannad, agus The Bothy Band. Sa leathbhliain chéanna sheol an banna a gcéad EP, dhéanadar a gcéad léiriú teilifíse (The Late Late Show) agus bhíodar mar ábhar clár speisialta uair a chloig ar Céilí House, RTÉ. Lean an grúpa lena ndul chun cinn i 2014 le seóanna sa Bhreatain, Mór-roinn na hEorpa agus turas Lá le Pádraig go Zambia, ag críochnú suas le heisiú a gcéad albam 'Skipper's Alley' ("gloriously three-dimensional. ★★★★"- The Irish Times).

Skipper's Alley are a 7-piece ensemble whose dynamic take on traditional Irish music has garnered wide critical praise. The group spring from harp-accompanied Sean-Nós songs to feral, unkempt sets of reels, creating a sound that is both "scintillating" and "a model of tender delicacy" (David Kidman, The Living Tradition).Skipper's Alley first came to prominence in the summer of 2013 after winning the Loic Raison Trophy at Brittany's Festival Interceltique de Lorient, an award previously won by such established acts as Danú, Clannad, and The Bothy Band. In the same six-month period, the group launched an EP, made their live television debut (The Late Late Show) and were the subject of an hour-long radio special on RTÉ's Céilí House. 2014 saw the band enjoy continued success with performances in the UK, mainland Europe and even a St. Patrick's Day tour in Zambia, all ending with the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album 'Skipper's Alley' ("gloriously three-dimensional. ★★★★"- The Irish Times).

Léamh Filíochta le / Poetry Reading with Aogán Ó Muircheartaigh

Déardaoin @ 7in / Thursday @ 7pm Cead isteach / Entry: €5

Léamh filíochta le hAogán Ó Muircheartaigh óna cheathrú chnuasach, Os Cionn Talún, a bheidh á sheoladh ar an oíche le ceol ó Mark Crickard. Is fada cáil ar Aogán Ó Muircheartaigh mar scríbhneoir. Ag Oireachtas na Gaeilge sa bhliain 1987, is air a bhronnadh Duais an Ríordánaigh—mórghradam na filíochta Gaeilge—agus níl aon laige tagtha ar a chumas ó shin. Tá scil ar leith aige i saothrú na teanga. Ní hamháin go bhfuil sé sáite i stair agus sánas na bhfocal féin ach tá cluas íogair aige do ghaol na bhfocal dá chéile. Bítear go minic ag léamh faoi chnuasaigh nua dánta agus ní eisceacht é seo, an cnuasach nua dánta is éirimiúla fós ó pheann intinne an údair. Fíonn sé línte na véarsaíochta le chéile, le misneach agus crógacht dhomhain liteartha, gan trácht ar an ngreann a shníonn tríothu. Maidir leis an sraithdhán teidil—an bard sa bharda ar ais ó chaol a dhroma trí cheobhrán a athbheochana.

A poetry reading by Aogán Ó Muircheartaigh from his fourth collection, 'Os Cionn Talún', which will be launched on the night. Music will be by Mark Crickard. Aogán Ó Muircheartaigh has long been renowned as a writer. He was awarded the Seán Ó Ríordáin Prize at the Oireachtas in 1987 – the main prize for poetry in Irish – and has not looked back since. He has an exceptional skill in working the language. Not only is he well-versed in it's history and etymology, but he also has an ear sensitive to the relationships between words. This new collection is the most intellegent yet from the pen of the author. He interweaves the lines of poetry with a deep literary courage, not to mention the humour which runs through them. The title-series of poems presents us with the bard in the ward returning from the flat of his back through the vapours of his revival.

30.04.15 @ 8pm The Light Within

Scannán/ Film 'The Light Within'

Déardaoin @ 8in / Thursday @ 8pm Cead isteach / Entry: €5

Scannán, 35 neomad. Tá cáil idirnáisiúnta ar Ron Rosenstock mar ghrianghrafadóir. Tírdhreacha loma is fearr leis, bíodh na radhairc sin i Maracó nó i Maigh Eo. Tá an domhan siúlta aige ar thóir an tsolais. Níl aon ghaol aige le Gabriel Rosenstock ach is fada comhoibriú ealaíonta eatarthu. Leabhar ilteangach uathu (Gaeilge, Spáinnis, Béarla agus Seapáinis) is ea The Invisible Light, haiku agus grianghrafanna. Is é atá sa DVD The Light Within ná grianghraif de chuid Ron agus haiku i nGaeilge le Gabriel. I nGaeilge a chloistear na haiku agus tagann aistriúchán Béarla ar an scáileán. Fear as an Afraic Theas (an tiománaí a bhí ag an laoch Steve Biko, dála an scéil) a chuir fuaimrian leis an DVD, is é sin Eugene Skeef, ceoltóir agus cumadóir atá lonnaithe faoi láthair i Londain. Eatarthu, tá seoid sholasmhar cruthaithe ag Ron, Eugene agus Gabriel, eispéireas machnamhach a nochtann an solas agus an ciúnas ionainn féin.

Film, 35 minutes. In response to the sublimely beautiful nature photography of American master photographer Ron Rosenstock, Eugene Skeef, the widely acclaimed South African composer and musician based in London, has created a breathtaking soundscape to complement the images. Internationally renowned poet Gabriel Rosenstock, contributes sensitive, finely honed haiku, in Irish and English, to this unique multimedia project.

Her work utilizes universal symbols connecting us back to age- old wisdom and teachings.

Is ealaíontóir, Ciarraíoch fir agus céimí de chuid na hOllscoile Náisiúnta Ealaíne agus Deartha i mBáile Átha Cliath é Gerry Barry. Tá sé ag saothrú i ngort na healaíne talún le blianta fada. Baineann sé úsáid as meáin orgánacha chun insealbhaithe eipiceacha a chruthú atá suite i dtírdhreach ha hÉireann, go mór mór timpeall ar a dhúthaigh féin, Caisleán Ghriaire. Ag baint feidhm as carraigeacha, uisce, gaineamh agus tírdhreachtú, cruthaíonn sé ealaín a d'fhéadfadh go mairfidh sé lá nó deich bliana. Rómhairtear pátrúin ciorclacha agus claiseanna éadoimhne a líonann le huisce fearthainne agus screamhuisce chun go nochtar pátrún an ealaíontóra. Cruthaítear na hinsealbhaithe seo chun suí go sochma i measc na ndúl atá féin ina saothair ealaíne a bhíonn ag síor-chlaochlú gan stad gan staonadh.

Gerry Barry is a Kerry artist and graduate of the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. He has worked in the Land Art tradition for many years. He employs organic media to create epic installations on Ireland's landscape, particularly in and around his homeplace of Castlegregory. Using rocks, water, sand and landscaping, he creates artwork that can last for a day or a decade. Circular patterns and shallow troughs are dug, filling with ground water and rain, which reveal the artist's chosen pattern. The installations are meant to co-exist with the elements of nature, which are themselves an ever-changing work of art.

Satharn @ 7in / Saturday @ 7pm Cead isteach / Entry: €10

Ba i Ré Airgid litríocht na Rúise a bhláthaigh Marina Tsvetaeva (1892-1941). Le linn Réabhlóid na Rúise a mhair sí agus a scríobh sí. Sa bhliain 1941 agus arm na Gearmáine ag réabadh rompu sa Rúis, chroch sí í féin. Tá paisean fíochmhar go smior ina cuid filíochta agus patrúin cheoil phreabarnacha. Léifidh Elaine Feinstein, duine de na sáraistritheoirí atá aici, leaganacha Béarla anocht agus cloisfear leaganacha Gaeilge ón Duibhneach dílis, Dairena Ní Chinnéide, draoithe ceoil á dtionclacan, Steve Cooney (giotár), Seán Mac Erlaine (sacsafón, cláirnéid, uirlisí leictreonacha) móide íomhánna is grianghraif chartlainne ar scáilean le Margaret Lonergan a bhainfidh an anáil dínn. Buíochas le IMRAM agus Liam Carson don tionscadal seo.

'I clang – blare – clap / I snarl, I shoot sparks'. So wrote Marina Tsvetaeva (1892 – 1941), one of the greatest poets of Russia's Silver Age. She lived and wrote through the Russian Revolution and the Moscow famine which followed. Tsvetaeva's poetry is noted for its fiery passion and pulsing musical patterns. Her poems will be read in English by Elaine Feinstein, one of the foremost translators of her work, and in Irish by Dairena Ní Chinnéide. They will be accompanied by musicians Steve Cooney (guitar) and Seán Mac Erlaine (saxophone, clarinet, electronics) and by stunning visual projections featuring archive photographs, art and film created by Margaret Lonergan.

'Béirín Beag Buí'
Formáid / Format: 7 neomad / daite / Éire / 2014 / DVD Stiúrthóir / Director: Niamh Lawlor.

Is scannán suantraithe do pháistí óga é Béirín Beag Buí. Déanta le puipéadóireacht, scáthanna agus gnáth-scannánaíocht, tá an scéal simplí seo curtha i láthair ag Púca Puppets le cúnamh ó FISD/Físín agus Comhairle Chontae Bhaile Átha Cliath. Baineann sé le deacracht codlata, ach thíos ar san leis an idir-eatarthu, an ré thaibhsiúil atá ann idir dhúiseacht agus codladh. Téann an béirín beag buí go dtí ríocht na dtaibhreamh. Cuirfidh an scéal seo an leanbh ar a shuaimhneas: téann siad ar aistear scéalaíoch samhlaíoch agus tagann siad slán ar maidin.
Chomh maith leis an scannán a fheiscint, beidh deis ag na páistí bualadh leis an mbéirín beag buí é fhéin agus a bheith rannpháirteach i gceardlann simplí mar fhreagra air. Beidh fáilte rompu a mbéiríní nó 'cairde speisialta' eile a thabhairt leo agus a gcuid pitseamaí a chaitheamh más mian leo.

Béirín Beag Buí is a lullaby film for children of 3-6 years. It is made with rod, strings and shadow puppets as well as live action, and is produced by Púca Puppets with the assistance of Dingle International Film Festival Físín Award and Dublin County Council. The film is about difficulties sleeping and about the magical world between sleep and waking. The story invites children to relax and embark on a journey of imagination and stories which will bring them safely to morning.
In addition to seeing the film, children will have a chance to meet the little yellow bear and to respond creatively to the film in a simple workshop activity with their accompanying adults. They are welcome to bring their own teddies or other 'special friends' along and to wear their pyjamas if they like.

'BB agus Bella'
Formáid / Format: 10 x 5 neomad / daite / Éire / 2014 / DVD
Stiúrthóir / Director: Kealan O'Rourke.

'BB agus Bella' bunaithe ar an gcéad teidí a labharann Gaeilge agus díríonn sé ar pháistí réamhscoile a spreagadh le Gaeilge a labhairt tré úsáid a bhaint as uimhreacha, dathanna agus cruthanna. Is cailín cúig bliana d'aois í Bella. Tá cónaí uirthi lena tuismitheoirí i dtigín beag gleoite. Freastalaíonn sí ar an naíonra agus is breá leí bheith ag siopadóireacht lena hathair. Tugann sí cúnamh ag a baile, tá suim mhór aici i leabhair agus is breá leí a bheith ag gléasadh suas, ach níos mó ná aon rud eile, tá grá aici dá teidí BB.

'BB and Bella' is a pre-school series based on the first toy teddy bear to speak Irish. It focusses on encouraging young children to speak Irish through the use of numbers, shapes and colours. Bella is a five year old girl who lives in a lovely little house with her parents. She attends the naíonra and loves to go shopping with her father. She helps out at home and has a love of books and of dressing up, but more than anything else she loves her teddy, BB.

'It Came From Connemara'
Formáid / Format: 60 neomad / daite / Éire / 2014 / Digiteach
Stiúrthóir / Director: Brian Reddin
Foireann/Cast: Roger Corman, James Brolin, Don Wilson, Corbin Bernsen, Alexandra Paul.

Scéal stiúdió scannáin Roger Corman i gConamara. Nuair a bhain an déantóir scannán 'B' clúiteach Éirinn amach thug sé leis a cháil a dheimhníonn áit bhuan dó i stair na scannánaíochta. Ba é Roger a chuir Coppola, Scorsese, Nicholson agus De Niro os comhair an phobail i gcéaduair. Nuair a cloistear an t-ainm Corman ritheann na focail 'íseal-bhuiséad', 'cultas' agus 'craic' leis an té a gcloiseann. Agus b'shin iad na tréithe a bhain leis na scannán a dhéan sé in Éirinn. Bhain conspóid leis an tréimhse a chaith sé sa tír, agus é ag cur as dos na ceardchumainn agus do lucht critice scannán araon. Shocraigh sé teacht go hÉirinn sna 1990idí agus stiúdió a oscailt ann. Bhí na céadta ag obair i stiúdió Corman i gConamara thar na blianta agus dhéanadh beagnach 20 scannán ar fad i gConamara le criú agus aisteoirí as Éirinn. Ach ní raibh a fhios ceart riamh cén sórt scannán a bhíodh á taifeadadh ann... go dtí anois. .

When legendary film producer Roger Corman arrived in Ireland, he brought with him an unrivalled career which guaranteed him a place in cinema history. This was the man who launched the careers of Coppola, Scorsese, Nicholson and De Niro. The name 'Corman' meant low-budget, but it also meant 'cult' and - crucially - it meant fun. His Irish films were designed to deliver just that. His short time making movies in Conamara would be marred by controversy as he managed to upset both the unions and the tastes of cinephiles. He released almost 20 feature films, all shot in Conamara by Irish crews with Irish actors. With unique access to Corman and his archive of Irish films, along with behind the scene stills and footage, this documentary tells the whole story of what came from Conamara during those five gloriously gruesome years.

Deartháir Martin Cahill, príomh-phearsa an scannáin 'The General' isea Eddie Cahill. Chaith sé 21 bliain i bpríosúin agus is ann a shaothraigh sé a chuid ealaíne mar bhealach féinléirithe. D'athraigh a shaol ina iomlán nuair a fhreastal sé ar rang ealaíne in aghaidh a thola fé stiúir Brian McGuire i bPríosúin Phort Laoise le linn a thréimhse dheireanaigh ann. Is tré seo a nochtadh mianach ar leith a bhí ann i ngan fhios dó féin agus thosnaigh sé ag péinteáil 20 uair sa ló, gan chodladh ach cúpla uair a chloig ar maidin agus é ag seachaint aon chumarsáid le príosúnaigh eile.

Nuair a scaoileadh amach é ar dheireadh, thug sé a dhrom don gcoirpeacht agus dhírigh isteach ar a shaol ealaíne. Tá na gnúiseanna óga folmha léirithe ina chuid pictiúirí bunaithe ar dhaoine gan dídean a chasadh air ar na sráideanna. Ina chuid saothair déanainn sé iarracht aird a tharraingt orthu siúd atá ligthe i ndearúd. Díríonn a ealaín go príomha ar dhaoine a bhfuil a mothúchán múchta ag an slí a chaith an saol leo - dramhaíl ruaigthe an tsochaí, mar a feictear dó iad. Bhí roinnt taispeántas aonair ag Eddie Cahill cheana féin a thuill ardmholadh ó léirmheastóirí.

D'oibrigh sé leis an Art Squad i mBaile Átha Cliath agus ar roinnt tionscnaimh eile i dteannta dhaoine le deacrachtaí foghlama.

Beidh Eddie i láthair ag an seoladh agus rannpháirteach i seisiúin C&F i dteannta an ealaíontóra Frank 'Lucas' Quigley, tar éis léiriú an scannán 'The Outsiders' fén mbeirt acu i bpictiúrlann an Phoenix ag 6pm ar an Satharn. Beidh stiúrthóir an scannáin, Mark McLoughlin, ina chathaoirleach ar an seisiúin..

Brother of Martin Cahill, subject of the movie 'The General' , Eddie Cahill spent 21 years in prison and it was there that he cultivated a means of expressing himself through art. His life changed dramatically when he unwillingly attended an art class by the artist Brian McGuire in Port Laoise Prison during his last sentence. This opened the door on an undiscovered passion and he began painting compulsively 20 hours a day, working right through the night and only sleeping for a few hours in the morning, avoiding contact with other prisoners.

When he was last released, he turned his back on crime and dedicated his life to the pursuit of his art practise. The young vacant faces he paints are mostly inspired by homeless people he met in the street. With his work he tries to draw attention and light to forgotten people. His work has been mainly focussed on people with muted senses, what he sees as the forced detritus of society. Eddie Cahill has already had a number of solo shows which have been very well received by critics. He has also worked with Art Squad in Dublin and on a number of projects with people with learning difficulties.

Eddie will be present at the launch and will also participate in a Q&A session along with the artist Frank 'Lucas' Quigley following the screening of 'The Outsiders' about the two artists in the Phoenix Cinema at 6pm on Saturday. The film's director, Mark McLoughlin, will chair the session.

Laoise kelly and Tiarnan Ó Duinnchinn

Laoise Kelly (cláirseach) agus Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn (píobaí uilinne) ag seimint ceoil i dteannta a chéile le dhá bhliain anuas. Tá an comhcheangal seo idir dhá cheann d'uirlisí comharthacha na hÉirinn lán de cheol agus sians na staire. Casann Laoise agus Tiarnán as stór ceoil bainte ó réimse leathan de phoirt rince agus foinn malla Gaelacha ag síneadh ó rincí sciobóla Ultacha go dtí polcaí na Mumhan agus ó foinn as lámhscríbhinní na naoiú haoise déag go dtí píosaí cumadóireachta comh-aimseartha.
Bhí Tiarnán ina bhall bunaidh den mbanna Dorsa. Dhéan sé camchuairt fhairsing i dteannta Moya Brennan as Clannad ó 1997 go 2001 agus eisíodar dhá albam: 'Whisper to the Wild Water' agus 'Two Horizons'. Bhuaigh sé Bonn Ór Uí Riada sna píobaí uilinne sa bhliain 2013.
Bhí Laoise ina ball bunaidh den mbanna traidisiúnta 'Bumblebees' lena thaifead sí dhá albam agus lena dhéan sí camchuairteanna i gcéin is i gcóngar. Sa bhliain 1999 thaifead sí a céad albam aonair, 'Just Harp', albam a d'fhuair mórchuid molta ó chriticeoirí. Tá cruitireacht Laoise le cloisint ar níos mó ná 50 albam i dteannta ceoltóirí iomráiteacha, leithéid The Chieftains, Sharon Shannon, John Hoban, Dónal Lunny, Matt Molloy agus Mary Black.

Laoise Kelly (harp) and Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn (uilleann pipes) have been duetting for 2 years. The combination of two of Ireland's emblematic instruments is charged with musical history and sound. Laoise and Tiarnán play a repertoire taken from the wide spectrum of Irish dance music and airs from Ulster barn dances to Munster polkas and from 19th century manuscripts to modern compositions.
Tiarnán was one of the founding members of the group Dorsa. He toured extensively with Moya Brennan of Clannad from 1997-2001 and recorded two albums, 'Whisper to the Wild Water' and 'Two Horizons'. He won the Seán Ó Riada gold medal for the uilinn pipes in 2013. Laoise was a founder member of the traditional group 'Bumblebees' with whom she recorded two albums and toured extensively. In 1999 she recorded her first solo album 'Just Harp' to critical acclaim. Laoise's harp playing features on over 50 albums with acclaimed artists including The Chieftains, Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, Matt Molloy and Mary Black.

6.11.2014 @ 8 i.n. Ceolchoirm le Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh agus Griogair Labhruidh

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh agus

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh
Is ceoltóir agus amhránaí í Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh ó Dhún Chaoin i gContae Chiarraí. Is sár-fhliútadóir agus príomhámhránaí í leis an ngrúpa traidisiúnta aitheanta Danú. Is minic í le clos agus le feiscint ar raidió is ar teilifís. I measc a halbam aonair tá Réalt na Maidine (2002), Fáinne an Lae (2006) agus Ar Uair Bhig an Lae (2012). I 2008 thaifid sé an t-albam Dual i dteannta Julie Fowlis, Ross Martin agus Éamonn Doorley a mheascann ábhar Gaelach ó Éireann agus Alban is a léiríonn na nascanna is na difríochtaí idir an dá chultúr. Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh was raised in Dún Chaoin in County Kerry. She is an accomplished flute player and lead vocalist with the acclaimed traditional Irish group Danú. She can often be heard or seen on radio and television. Amongst her solo albums are Réalt na Maidine (2002), Fáinne an Lae (2006) and Ar Uair Bhig an Lae (2012). In 2008 she recorded the album Dual with Julie Fowlis, Ross Martin and Éamonn Doorley, a record which mixes traditional Gaelic material from Ireland and Scotland and explores the similarities and differences between the two cultures.

Griogair Labhruidh
Duine de chlann Labhruidh ó Bhallachullis é Griogar Labhruidh, dream a bhfuil cháil an cheoil amach orthu i nGarbhchríocha na hAlban. Píobaire agus amhránaí den scoth é i sean-stíl Earra Ghàidheal agus cainteoir dúchais i gcaniúint an cheantair úd. Is minic é ag pórseáil i sean-leabhraibh agus cairtlainn ag tabhairt ábhar traidisiúnta dearúdta Earra Ghàidheal chun solais arís, ach is cumadóir aitheanta é chomh maith. Tá dhá albam eisithe aige go dtí seo; an t-albam aonair Dail-riata agus Guaillibh a Chéile le Dominic Mac Giolla Bhríde, albam a chíorann na nascann idir an dá thraidisiúin Gaelach beo. Griogair Labhruidh is one of the Labhruidh family from Ballachullis, a family well-known for their musical prowess in the Scottish Highlands. He is a piper and singer in the old Argyle style, and a native speaker of the Gaelic dialect of that area. He frequently unearths forgotten traditional musical material from Argyll in archives and other sources, but is a fine composer in his own right. He has thus far released two albums; the solo album Dail-riata and, with Dominic Mac Giolla Bhríde, Guaillibh a Chéile, which examines the links between the two living Gaelic traditions.

Bhí an criticeoir Denis O'Driscoll den tuairim gur b'iad McCarthy agus Paul Muldoon na filí is tabhachtaí dá nglúin. Siad mórthéamaí buana an Chárthaigh ná cúrsaí polaitíochta agus cúrsaí clainne. Tá ocht gcnuasaigh filíochta agus dhá úrscéal foilsithe aige. 'Sé atá i dteideal-sraith a leabhar is déanaí, The Last Geraldine Officer, ná sraith dánta próise as Béarla agus Gaolainn atá mar chuid, mar dhea, de dhialann Éireannaigh atá ina oifigeach in airm na Breataine le linn an Tarna Cogadh Domhanda
Thomas McCarthy was born and raised at Cappoquin Co. Waterford. He began to publish poems while still an undergraduate and won awards at an early age, including the Patrick Kavanagh Award when he was just 24. Considered by the critic Dennis O'Driscoll to be, along with Paul Muldoon, the most important Irish poet of his generation, McCarthy is a poet primarily concerned with politics and family. He has published eight collections of poetry and two novels. His latest book The Last Geraldine Officer features a sequence of prose-poems in English and Irish, consisting of the campaign diary of an Irishman serving as an officer in the British army of the Second World War.


Rugadh Gábor Péli san Ungáir i 1985 ach tá sé ag maireachtaint in Éireann le tamall. Bhain sé amach céim sa cheol ag Scoil Cheoil Chorcaí. Casann sé an giotár clasaiceach agus bhain sé Duais James O'Brien, duais cáiliúil don uirlis sin, sa bhliain 2011. Agus é i mbun a chuid staidéar ceoil, dírigh Gábor isteach ar chúrsaí cumadóireachta agus stiúradh thar na réimsí eile.
Gábor Péli was born in Hungary in 1985 but has lived in Ireland for some years. He holds a Bmus degree from CIT Cork School of Music. He plays the classical guitar and won the James O'Brien Prize, a prestigious prize for recital on that instrument, in 2011. During his musical studies Gábor concentrated in particular on conducting and composition.

30.05.14 @ 7.30 i.n. Baile do Bhí/A Home that Was á sheoladh ag Biddy Jenkinson

Baile do Bhí

Cuirfear fáilte roimh chách in An Lab ag 7.30in ar Aoine 30ú Bealtaine nuair a sheolfaidh an sár-scríbhneoir Biddy Jenkinson Baile do Bhí/A Home that Was, leabhar ilmheánach nua le dánta ó Simon Ó Faoláin, scannán le Zoe Uí Fhaoláin agus pictiúirí le Dominique Lieb, foilsithe ag Púca Press. Beidh ceol le Mark Crickard ann chomh maith.

All will be welcome in An Lab at 7.30pm on Friday 30th May when the distinguished writer Biddy Jenkinson will launch Baile do Bhí/A Home that Was, a new multi-media book featuring poems by Simon Ó Faoláin, film by Zoe Uí Fhaoláin and pictures by Dominique Lieb, published by Púca Press. There will also be music from Mark Crickard.

D'fhás an leabhar seo timpeall ar shraith dánta le Simon Ó Faoláin fén tigh inar chaith sé mórchuid dá óige ach atá anois ag titim as a chéile. Pléann na dánta le nádúr na cuimhne agus cumhacht an dúlra. Bunaithe ar na dánta tá priontaí líonóile agus adhmaid atmasféaracha ilshraitheacha cumtha ag Dominique Lieb agus gearrscannán íogair machnamhach déanta ag Zoe Uí Fhaoláin timpeall ar an 'Baile do Bhí' mar atá anois. Tá na dánta á léamh ag an údar le fáil ar an diosca céanna. Mar is dual le Púca Press, tá idir théacs agus léaráidí lámh-chlóbhuailte agus lámh-cheangailte, rud a fhágann gur píosa breá ceardaíochta agus ealaíne é cruth an leabhair féin.

This book grew up around a series of poems by Simon Ó Faoláin about the house where he spent much of his youth, but which is now falling apart. The series deals with the nature of memory and the power of nature. Based on the poems, Dominique Lieb has created atmospheric, multi-layered lino and wood-cuts while Zoe Uí Fhaoláin has made a perceptive and meditative short film around the 'Home that Was' as it now is. The poems read by the author are also featured on the disc.
As is usual with Púca Press, both text and illustrations are hand-printed and hand-bound, which means the book's form is in itself a fine piece of craft and art.

A dark silhouette is breaking in with malevolent intentions and a sharp sword. Four mysteriously illuminated spheres about to disappear from an ancient temple. Suddenly a scroll reveals itself in the room. As Riuchi starts to read, an old Master appears. THE TALE of the ancient lights tells a story of magic, beauty and poetic amazement that invites the child-like spirit in all of us.

This 45 minutes solo performance combines circus, dance and magic in a modern journey through an ancestral Asian legend. Suitable for all ages.

04.05.14 @ 7.00 pm Seó grinn as Gaeilge le Kevin McAleer.
Is fear fiúntach agus réalt amach é Kevin McAleer. (Scríobhann sé a chuid fógraíochta féin…!) Is tionchar mór é do dhaoine a bhíonn ag plé le coimidé in Éirinn agus sa Bhreatain, ó Stewart Lee go-dtí David O' Doherty. Cuirtear é i gcomparáid le Beckett agus Flan O' Brien, (gan amhras). Anuraidh, mar dhúshlán, theastaigh uaidh seó as Gaeilge a chur ar stáitse. Mar sin, chuir sé snas ar a chuid Gaeilge nár úsáid sé ó bhí sé ar scoil. D'éirigh leis é seó a dhéanamh san fhéile Cat Laughs i gCill Choinnigh. Seans go bhfaca tú é ar stáitse ag Electric Picnic nó i nGaoth Dobhair..Bígí linn.

Kevin McAleer is a genius and a living comedy legend, and writes all his own publicity material as well. He has influenced and inspired a whole generation of comedians in Ireland and the UK, from Stewart Lee to David O'Doherty. His carefully polished scripts, with not a word out of place, have often been likened to Beckett and Flann O'Brien. Last year he decided to dust off his rusty O-level Irish and presented his show 'as Gaeilge' at the 'Cat Laughs' Festival in Kilkenny. He has since performed it at the Electric Picnic Festival, survived a night in Gweedore, and is now ready for the invasion of Munster. Bígí linn.

Tá sé lán de bhaile an linbh agus an tuismitheora, baile na samhlaíochta, bailte in Éirinn agus sa Spás, baile an ghrá, baile an dúnmharaithe, agus an bus abhaile.
Ach níl ansin ach blaiseadh den saol atá á shealbhú anseo. Tá an-ghealladh go deo faoin scríbhneoir seo, agus cuireann sé é féin in iúl le stíl shoiléir sholéite. Tá úire, téagar agus greann ag baint le dánta is amhráin Ceol Baile.

Marcus Mac Conghail
Marcus is a Dubliner who wastes a lot of his time on twitter. His first book of poetry and songs has just been published by Coiscéim. His work has been published in Feasta and by Dedalus Press and has been broadcast on RnaG, RTÉ and TG4. Songs which he composed have been released by RnaG and this year one of his new songs won second place at the Pan-Celtic Festival. He is currently concentrating on putting an album of his music together.
Ceol Baile ('Home Music') is full of music and of home: radio music, city music, party music, rap music, word music and the music and song arising out of life.
It is full of the home of the child and of the parent, the home of imagination, homes in Ireland and out in space, the home of love, the home of murder and the bus home.
But this is only a taste of the life within the book. This writer shows great promise and expresses himself in a clear, readable style. The poems and songs in Ceol Baile are full of freshness, strength and humour.

Físfeis draws connections between National Institutions as 'keepers' of works with a 'Gaeltacht' topography.


Toibreacha Beannaithe Chorca Dhuibhne

Towards the end of 2011, a group of photo enthusiasts came together. Each with their own history; but all with the same purpose, to explore the places and the people who carry the traditions and stories of the holy wells.

Along the way, they met, among others, a poet, a historian, a mother of seven and a Monseigneur. This is their journey. Through time, history, place and through its people, to seek out the source of the enigmatic tales and traditions of Corca Dhuibhne's Holy Wells. For one night, come and share in their experiences in photographs, interviews, manuscripts and maps and become part of the journey.


Join us at An Lab from 5.00pm on Culture Night 2013.

"And of these fancys whole volumes are left, scarce ever to be made use of, but either in the ayre for kites or in the fire for singing pullets." Siad na "Fancys" lena ndéanainn an t-áirsitheoir Roger North tagairt thuas ná fantaisí grúpaí bíol, ceol a bhí an-tóir air i Sasana le linn an 17ú céad suas don mbliain 1660 nuair a thánig Searlas II i réim is gur thit an grúpa bíol as faisean go tobann.
'Sé ceol an tréimhse 'neamhfhaiseanta' seo ag an ngrúpa bíol a iniúchtar sa cheolchoirm seo, le formhór an cheoil a chasfar scríofa timpeall na bliana 1660 nó go gairid ina dhiaidh san, le bearna as san suas go 1680, an bhliain a chum Henry Purcell iomlán a 15 Fantaisí agus In Nomineanna don mbíol. Ní fhoilsíodh riamh iad agus tá gach seans nár chasadh iad riamh leis an gcóiriú a bhí i gceist ag Purcell le linn a bheo, ach tá déine inste is mothaithe agus beocht coir a fhágann gur conclúid doimhin, corraitheach iad ar ré an ghrúpa bíol i Sasana.
Chum Purcell a chuid fantaisí fé anáil Matthew Locke, cara de chuid mhuintir Purcell go mbeidh roinnt dá shaothair á seinnt le linn na ceolchoirme leis. Bhain an dá chumadóir feidhm as sraith 'poinntí' nó míreanna ceoil mar a bhí le fáil i bhfantaisí bíol níos luaithe, ach in ionad iad a cheangal in iomlán aontaithe gan uaim mar a bheadh déanta ag cumadóirí a thánaig rompu, mhéadaíodar an codarsnacht idir gach smaoineamh, ag déanamh shraith rann féin-chuimsitheach le codarsnacht eatarthu ó thaobh threoracha luais dhe. Beidh saothair Christopher Simpson, áta luaite mar mháistir chumadóireacht 'scarúna' don mbíol, le clos mar chuid den cheolchoirm leis.
Thosnaigh Sarah Grosser amach ag seimint an bhíl agus í ocht mbliain d'aois fé theagasc a hathair a chasann an uirlis chéanna, ach dhírigh sí ar an dordveidhil go dtí go raibh sí siar amach sna déaga, uair a bheir fuaim an bhíl á seimint mar ghrúpa greim cluaise uirthi. Chaith sí tréimhsí ag staidéar fé Charles Medlam ag Ollscoil Mhanchain, Jaap ter Linden ag Ardscoil Ceoil Rotterdam agus le Jordi Savall ag Schola Cantorum Basiliensis ar bhonn seachtrach. Bhí sí ina ball fad-téarmach den Rose Consort agus de Sonnerie, agus tá seinnte aici le London Baroque, Ceolfhoireann Barócach na hÉireann, Fretwork, Charivari Agreable agus an Dowland Consort. Bhog sí go hIarthar Chorcaí sa bhliain 2001.
Thosnaigh Lucy Robinson amach ag seinnt an bíl agus í ina déagóir fé theagasc Andrew Robinson, duine de cheannródaithe an luath-cheoil in Éireann. Seineann sí go rialta i dteannta Bíl Átha Cliath, Seanma, Grúpa Ceoluirlisí Naomh Sepulchre agus a thuilleadh buíonta eile nach iad, chomh maith le bheith ina fíodóir agus ina ealaíontóir.
Thosnaigh Mark Wilkes amach ag seinnt an dordveidhle nuair a bhí sé seacht mbliain d'aois, sara chuir sé tús lena staidéar ar an mbíol agus é ina dhéagóir fé theagasc Andrew Robinson, uncail Malachy agus Lucy. Níos déanaí dhéan sé staidéar fé roinnt oidí bíol, José Vazquez i Wien agus Reiko Ichise i Londain san áireamh. Dhéan sé staidéar sa cheoleolaíocht i gColáiste na hOllscoile Baile Átha Cliath agus ina dhiaidh san i dteicneolaíocht ceoil agus taifeadadh fuaime in Ollscoil na Banríona, Béal Feirste. Chaith sé blianta fada ag obair mar cheoltóir dordveidhle agus bíl le ensemble éagsúla, Baróc Theampaill Chríost agus Bíl Átha Cliath ina measc, sara chuaigh sé ar strae iomlán ón gconair san le bheith ina innealtóir bog-earraí.
Is ceoltóir aireagail díográiseach é Malachy Robinson atá ina phríomh-sheinnteoir olldoird le Ceolfhoireann Aireagail na hÉireann ó 1995 amach. Ba bhall bunaidh é de Cheolfhoireann Barócach na hÉireann agus des na grúpaí aireagaile Trio Quattro, Armoniosa agus na Gregory Walkers. Tá curtha síos san Irish Times go léiríonn a chuid sheimint dordbhíl "deaslámhacht liriceach suntasach". /p>

The Zingle Zingers "And of these fancys whole volumes are left, scarce ever to be made use of, but either in the ayre for kites or in the fire for singing pullets." The "Fancys" to which the antiquarian Roger North refers above are viol consort fantazias, very popular in England during the 17th century up until 1660 when Charles II became king and the viol consort abruptly fell out of fashion.
It is this 'unfashionable' period for the viol consort that is explored in the concert and most of the music which will be played was written around the year 1660 or shortly thereafter, with a gap until 1880, the year Henry Purcell wrote wrote all 15 of his Fantazias and In Nomines for viols. They were never published and were probably never played in their intended instrumentation during Purcell's lifetime, but they have an intensity of expression and a liveliness of gesture that make them a profound and exciting conclusion to the age of the English viol consort.
Purcell's fantazias were influenced by those of Matthew Locke, a friend of the Purcell family whose work is also included in the concert programme. Both composers use a series of 'points' or musical phrases as used in earlier viol fantazias, but instead of joining them into a seamless whole as earlier composers would have done, they exaggerate the contrast between each idea, making a series of self-contained sections marked by contrasting tempo directions. Also featured on the programme will be the work of Christopher Simpson, considered the master of 'division' writing for the viol.
Performers: Sarah Grosser – treble viol, Lucy Robinson – tenor viol, Mark Wilkes – bass viol, Malachy Robinson – great bass viol.
Sarah Grosser first played the viol as an eight year old encouraged by her viol-playing father, but concentrated on the cello until her late teens when she developed a love of the sound of viols played in consort. She studied under Charles Medlam at Manchester University, Jaap ter Linden at Rotterdam Conservatory and externally with Jordi Savall at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. She was a long-term member of the Rose Consort and of Sonnerie, having also played with London Baroque, Irish Baroque Orchestra, Fretwork, Charivari Agreable and the Dowland Consort. She moved to West Cork in 2001.
Lucy Robinson started the viol as a teenager, studying with Andrew Robinson, one of the pioneers of the early music scene in Ireland. Regularly performing with Dublin Viols, Seanma, The Consort of St Sepulchre and many others, she is also a weaver and an artist.
Mark Wilkes studied 'cello from the age of 7 and started playing the viol as a teenager, studying with Andrew Robinson, Malachy and Lucy's uncle. He later studied with a number of viol teachers including José Vázquéz in Vienna and Reiko Ichise in London. He studied musicology in UCD and later music technology and sound recording at Queen's University, Belfast. He worked professionally as a cellist and viol player for many years, with ensembles including Christ Church Baroque and Dublin Viols before suddenly veering off track and becoming a software engineer.
Malachy Robinson is a dedicated chamber musician and principal double-bassist with the Irish Chamber Orchestra since 1995. He was a founder member of the Irish Baroque Orchestra and of chamber groups Trio Quattro, Armoniosa and the Gregory Walkers. His violone playing has been described in the Irish Times as demonstrating "a remarkable lyrical dexterity".

Seo taispeántas a thugann léargas dúinn ar conas a chuirtear leabhar maisithe le chéile – ón bhfocal scríofa go dtín mbreacaireacht, ón ngarbh-léaráid go dtín íomhá chríochnaithe, ó cheann go peann agus ó pháipéar go ríomhaire; isteach go dtín gclódóir agus amach ós comhair an tsaoil mhóir.

This exhibition gives an insight into how an illustrated book is put together – from the written word to the doodled sketch, from the thumbnail to the finished article, from pen to paper to computer; into the printer and out onto the bookshelf to be perused by the populace…and to live happily ever after…

23.06.2013 - 8 pm Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts: le Mick O'Brien, Emer Mayock agus Aoife Ní Bhriain

Emer Mayock Mick O Brien Aoife Ni Bhriain

Tagann Mick O'Brien (piobaí uilleann/fliúit/feadóg), Emer Mayock (fliúit/feadóg) agus Aoife Ní Bhriain (fidil) go dtí An Lab chun seoladh a CD 'Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts' a cheiliúradh le clár roghnaithe ós na bun-foinsí bailithe ag an gCanónach James Goodman i lár an 19ú aoise sa Mhumhan, a chúige dhúchais.

Tá na lámhscríbhinní caomhnaithe ag Leabharlann Choláiste na Tríonóide ó chailleadh é. Tugann siad léargas faoi leith dúinn i bhforbairt cheol traidisiúnta na hÉireann. Tá tábhacht faoi leith ag baint leo mar caomhnaíonn siad cuid mhaith de cheol traidisiúnta deiscirt na hÉireann mar a chanadh agus mar a seinneadh é sna blianta sar ar scriosadh an cultúr traidisiúnta ann de dheasca An Ghorta Mhóir sa naoú aois déag.

Rugadh agus tógadh Goodman i mBaile Aimín lasmuigh den Daingean agus cuireann san go mór le spéis na hócaide in An Lab. Chuala sé mórán de cheoil na háite agus é ag fás suas i lár an naoú aoise déag agus cuid mhaith de sin ón bpíobaire áitiúil Tomás Ó Cinnéide.

Sa cheolchoirm seo deineann Mick, Emer agus Aoife a gcuid fhéin den gceol a roghnaíodar ós na láimhscribhinní le cur i láthair urnua spreagúla, idir leaganacha neamhchoitianta de phoirt a seinntear san lá atá inniu ann agus iad siúd nach bhfuil le fáil lasmuigh den mbailiúcháin.

Urraithe ag an gComhairle Ealaíon

Mick O'Brien (uilleann pipes/flute/whistle), Emer Mayock (flute/whistle) and Aoife Ní Bhriain (fiddle) come to An Lab to mark the release of their CD 'Tunes from the Goodman Manuscripts' with repertoire drawn from original sources collected by Canon James Goodmanin the mid 19th century in his native province of Munster.

The manuscripts, which since his death have been held in the Library of Trinity College, provide unique insights into the evolution of Irish traditional music and are of great significance as they preserve much of the traditional music of the south of Ireland as it was sung and played in the years before traditional culture there was devastated by the Great Famine of the 1840s.

A fact that has particular resonance for this performance in An Lab is that Goodman was born and reared in Ballyameen just outside Dingle and heard much music of the locality when growing up in the 1830s and 40s and then later from local piper Tom Kennedy.

In this concert, Mick, Emer and Aoife present an original and exciting interpretation of the music they have chosen from the manuscripts, ranging from unusual versions of tunes in the modern repertoire to those apparently unique to the collection.

20.04.2013 @ 8 i.n. Tairseach an Rí / The King's Threshold

An Tairseach

Beidh mic léinn an Ard-Dioplóma sa Drámaíocht ag léiriú an leagan Gaeilge de dhráma Yeats "Tairseach an Rí" ("The King's Threshold") in An Lab sa Daingean ar an Satharn an 20 Aibreán. Tá an dráma seo bunaithe ar eachtra a tharla idir rí agus file i ré na mBard. Ní raibh an rí sásta géilleadh do dhlíthe traidisiúnta na mBard agus mhaslaigh sé an file. De bharr na héagóra seo, shocraigh an file go rachadh sé ar stailc ocrais, agus an baol ann go bhfaigheadh sé bás ar son na cúise. Dráma polaitiúil faoi chumhacht agus faoi éigeandáil stáit atá sa dráma seo agus cuireann sé eachtraí polaitiúla nua-aimseartha i gcuimhne dúinn.

Is é Diarmuid de Faoite léiritheoir an dráma, agus meascann an stáitsiú íomhánna stairiúla ré na mBard le seit agus cultacha nua-aimseartha. Bíonn an stáitsiú ag plé, ní hamháin le deireadh ré na bhfilí, ach le polaitíocht, le cumhacht, le stailceanna ocrais na bPoblachtach sa gcéad seo caite agus leis an bhfulaingt a bhaineann le cúlú eacnamaíochta an lae inniu.

Ba é Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge a rinne coimisiúnú ar an leagan Gaeilge den dráma agus ba é Gabriel Rosenstock a d'aistrigh é. Is é seo an chéad uair ag an leagan Gaeilge a bheith ag dul ar stáitse agus is mór an onóir do mhic léinn an Acadaimh an saothar iontach seo a chur os comhair an phobail.

Beidh an dráma ar siúl ar an Satharn, 20 Aibreán ag 8.00 i.n. in An Lab sa Daingean. Leanann sé ar feadh uair is ceathrú agus beidh tae, caifé agus deis bualadh leis na haisteoirí ina dhiaidh.

Sat. April 20th , 8pm in An Lab, Dingle: Táirseach an Rí - Irish Translation of Yeats's play performed by the Ard-Dioplóma sa Drámaíocht Students from Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge, NUI Galway, directed by Diarmuid de Faoite. Adm. €5 (Ph. 0878546572)

The Ard-Dioplóma sa Drámaíocht students from the Acadamh will be performing an Irish language translation of Yeats's play "The King's Threshold" ("Tairseach an Rí") in An Lab, Dingle on Saturday, April 20th. This play is set in Bardic times, and tells the story of a king who insulted a poet thus going against established Bardic customs. In line with these customs, the poet decides to go on hunger strike. Not only does the play discuss Bardic times but is symbolic of many political conflicts and situations and the story it tells is also relevant to contemporary society.

"Tairseach an Rí" is directed by iarmuid de Faoite, and his staging of the play emphasises this relevance to contemporary times: the costumes, the set and the soundtrack to the play mix the old and the new, making references to Bardic times as well as to a more modern Ireland. It is a contemporary story of politics and power, reminiscent of the Republican hunger strikes of the 1980s, and also relates to the sufferings of the current recession.

The Irish translation of "The King's Threshold" was commissioned by Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge, and it is the work of writer and translator Gabriel Rosenstock. This will be the first public performance in Irish of this play and it is a great honour for the students from the Acadamh to present such a poetic work.

Daoncheoil Ceilteach/Folk-Rock

Déardaoin/ Thurs 14 Márta/March @ 9pm Ticéidí/ €7/€5

Rugadh agus tógadh Meinir Gwilym i mbaile beag Llangristiolus i gcroí-lár Oileán Anglesey amuigh ó chósta thuaidh na Breataine Bige.
Clú agus cáil bainte amach aici timpeall na hEorpa mar amhránaí i stíl Daoncheol Ceilteach measctha le Rock agus Pop a scríobhann agus a chumann a cuid amhráin féin. Ceithre chinn de CD's eisithe aici: Coffi a Fodca Rhad (Toitíní, Caifé agus Vodka Saor), Dim ond Clwdda (Faic ach Bréaga), Sgandal Fain (Ráfla Tanaí) agus Tombola.
Is láithreoir teilifíse agus raidió í chomh maith leis an BBC agus Heart FM.
Canann an baritón clúiteach Bryn Terfel ina teannta ar a album direannach.
Deireann sí go bhfaigheann sí a cuid ionspioráide sa saol laethiúil.

Born and raised in the small village of Llangristiolus in the heart of the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) off the North Wales coast, singer-songwriter Meinir Gwilym has established herself as one of the best selling Welsh language artists ever. Her first release Smôcs, Coffi a Fodca Rhad (Cigarrettes, Coffee and Cheap Vodka) in 2002 met with phenomenal response with her unique voice and punchy lyrics, Celtic/acoustic/folk-rock/pop (!) being hailed as one of the most original and inspired compilations to come out of Wales in years. The follow-up album Dim ond Clwydda (Nothing but Lies) sold thousands within the first few months of release in November 2003. Meinir Gwilym has appeared at all major festivals in Wales, including Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, Maes B, The Royal Welsh Show and Bryn Terfel's Faenol Festival, and performs either with her multicultural band in larger venues or on her own, acoustically at small events.

Cosán le in Ceaití Ní Bheildiúin Ealaín Suiteála Ilmheánach / Multimedia Installation á sheoladh ag/launched by Bosco Ó Conchúir

Ag baint úsáide as clocha (ábhar amh ón tírdhreach), as an bhfocal clóite (filíocht) i dteannta na teicneolaíochta nuaaimseartha (íomhánna agus fuaimrianta digiteacha), déanann Ceaití Ní Bheildiúin iniúchadh ar chumhacht chosáin thraidisiúnta. Aimsíonn sí rud inti féin – 'cuimhne sa chnámh.'
Tá cuimhne sa talamh féin a théann go dtí an t-anam istigh.
I ngach cloch
bíonn cuimhne, bíodh sé
ina nath nó ina rann…"
Úsáidtear clocha mar shiombail dár n-oidhreacht féin, an chuimhne, an teanga, leanúnachas an tsaoil.
Tá an taispeántas Cosán ag plé le stair, traidisiúin, béaloideas, seanchas, dinnseanchas, eolas treibhe…

The memory of stones, their terrible, beautiful endurance. Poet Ceaití Ní Bheildiúin's multi-faceted exhibition Cosán takes us on the ancient path to the self. Her work explores how landscape embodies the person, using stones as keys to memory, language and the connections between generations. Ancient traditional paths are walked in her work, using stones (raw material from the land), the printed word (poetry) and digital images and sound-tracks to reveal their enduring power.

Traditional Irish Music and Poetry

Peadar Ó hUallaigh
Rugadh agus tógadh Peadar i gCluain Meala. Tá na blianta fada tugtha aige ag gabháilt do cheol ar an Mór-Roinn leis na Géanna Fiáine, agus le tríocha bliain anuas tá sé aige baile thiar i gCorca Dhuibhne. "Thuigeas go raibh rud éigin nua agus faoi leith á dhortadh amach ag Peadar i bhfoirm filíochta. Sa leabhar (Tír Tairngire) tugtar ar thuras inmheánachsinn... Is eiseamláir iontach é don 'oilithreacht faoi m'anam' go mbíodh Seán Ó Ríordáin ag trácht air." (Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill). D'fhoilsigh Coiscéim Soilse an Chroí anuraidh.

Dún Laoghaire Poetry Festival judged Peadar's Tír Tairngire to be the best first collection published in English or Irish by an Irish writer in 2009. He was also awarded a prize at Strokestown Festival. "Tír Tairngire...marks the arrival of a singular talent tackling big ideas – nature, time, space, ritual, myth, folklore and dinnseanchas." (Poetry Ireland Review) Sólás, from his 2nd collection Soilse an Chroí, won the Irish language poetry prize at Listowel Writers' Week.

Feargal Mac Amhlaoibh
Ó Bhleá Cliath ó dhúchas, ar dtús dhein Feargal Mac Amhlaoibh staidéar ar cheol chlasaiceach leis an veidhlín, ach le linn na mblianta sin spreagadh a shuim i gceol traidisiúnta. Ag teacht go Ciarraí mar dhéagóir, chuir sé aithne ar cheoltóirí agus ar cheol Iarthair Dhuibhneach lena leithéidí agus Deálaí, Tom "an Oileáin" Ó Dálaigh, Seán Ceaist Ó Catháin agus Seán de hÓra. Thar na blianta bhí baint aige le roinnt taifeadtaí agus d'fhoilsigh sé féin agus Con Durham, beannacht Dé leis, "An Pota Stóir" – cnuasach ceoil Iarthair Dhuibhneach i 1994.

A native of Dublin, Feargal Mac Amhlaoibh began studying classical violin, but during those early years his interest in traditional music grew. Coming to Kerry as a teenager, he came to know musicians and the music of West Kerry, playing with the likes of Deálaí, Tom "an Oileáin" Ó Dálaigh, Seán Ceaist Ó Catháin and Seán de hÓra. Over the years he was part of many recordings and with Con Durham, R.I.P, published "An Pota Stóir" - a collection of West Kerry music in 1994.

Ceathraid Sreang le Schubert – lán do dhrámaí móra an tsaoil. Thugadar Emma agus Joel leo agus seo cuid a haon dár dturas chun an piosa iomlán a sheinnt ar Lá Chultúir na bliana seo.

In January 2011, Aina and Rachel discovered that they were both obsessed with the same piece of music – Schubert's 'Death and the Maiden' String Quartet. With plenty of persistent persuasion, Emma and Joel agreed to join them and gradually, the obsession spread. This is the first instalment – two of the quartet's four movements – played purely for pleasure (though not without a degree of pain!).'

A week-long session of sculpture and mould preparation, pouring and displaying art pieces in front of the public. As part of the project, the participating artists and artisans would each contribute a piece of artwork for an exhibition in An Lab. The exhibition will be on display throughout the week. Accompanying this art display will be a presentation focusing on the archaeological aspects of our work, including several replica artefacts. These are reproductions of original works of art and craft of the Bronze Age, dating from 3500-2000 years ago. Throughout the week, the participants will be working on the various elements of the project, and the site will be a hive of industry. Visitors will be welcome on-site, and should feel free to talk to, and interact with, the artists. During the days of the festival, it will be a particularly exciting spectacle, as the moulds will be complete, and the artists will undertake the melting and pouring process. Cast items will be released from moulds, and visitors will be invited to observe the finished artworks. Two local artists have been invited to participate in the week-long symposium and groups from two Gaeltacht schools were invited to visit the site during the week, where they will be given a tour of the site and shown the various different techniques and steps of production. www.umha-aois.com

Taispeántas ghrianghrafadóireachta An Exhibition of Photography/
Tá sé deacair ciall a bhaint as rud atá ró-mhór nó ró-bheag. Ní thugtar aird ar nithe beaga, agus ar a mhalairt, má tá rud ollmhór ní féidir an iomlán a fheiscint ag aon am amháin, ná é a shamhlú go cruinn. Sé iniúchadh an saothar seo don réimse atá feicthe agus dofheicthe ag an am céanna. Le linn Féile na Bealtaine


Is griangrafadóir neamhspleách ó Dhún Chaoin Bríd Ní Luasaigh.
When something is too big, or too small, it starts to lose meaning. Small objects escape notice, or are difficult to see, huge things are so big we can only see part of them at any one time, and can't grasp the whole. This work is an exploration of these things that are visible and invisible at once.

Branwen
Is léiriú ceoil agus drámaíochta úrnua é seo bunaithe ar théamaí ársa, forbartha go comhoibríoch ag ógánaigh na hÉireann, na Breataine Bige agus na hAlban.

An Scéal
Bunaithe ar chnuasach scéalta béaloidis ón 'Ré Dhorcha', is téacs Breatanais é Y Mabinogi bailithe le chéile ag manaigh ón 10ú agus 11ú céad. Ar aon dul le Táin na hÉireann nó Odaisé na Gréige na linne chéanna, go bunúsach is cnuasach de scéalta éagsúla atá ann. Díoríonn craobh nó 'cangen' amháin de Y Mabinogi ar shaol tragóideach Bhranwen, iníon Ardrí na Breataine, an chruálacht agus an brón a bhain lena pósadh le prionsa ó Éirinn, an cogadh, an t-ár agus an t-athmhuintearas a tháinig ar deireadh. .
.
Sceite, náirithe agus cráite i dtír eachtrach tar éis pósadh draíochta, téann Branwen i muinín lena peata druide. Tugann an druid an scéal thar n-ais go hathair Bhranwen thar Mhuir Éireann. Fathach isea Bran agus siúlann sé trí Mhuir Éireann ag tarrach a airm agus a chabhlacháin chumhachtaigh leis agus, sar i bhfad, tá sé ina chogadh dearg ar thalamh na hÉireann. In ainneoin coire dhraíochta atá ina seilbh, tá an marú fíochmhar agus, níl síochán bainte amach go dtí gur chaill Bran a cheann, tá an dá phobal scriosta, agus faigheann Branwen bás le croí briste. Ar nós roinnt scéala miotaseolaíocha, tá Branwen lán de théamaí gur féidir leis na hógánaigh féin iad a fhorbairt agus a dhrámú .

An Léiriú
Tá athnuachan ar scéal déanta don léiriú seo ag an scríbhneoir Rhiannon Ifans, gur saineolaí é ar fhinscéalta miotaseolaíocha agus stairiúla do dhéagóirí, agus a chuid saothar foilsithe i mBreatanais, Gaeilge agus Béarla. Tosnaíonn an chéad chuid don scéal sa tSean-Bhreatain Bheag, agus beidh leagan nua drámaíochta i mBreatanais léirithe sa bhfómhair agus sa gheimhreadh ag ógánaigh ag Theatr Felinfach i gCeredigion. Tá an dara chuid lonnaithe in Éirinn agus é forbartha, sa tréimhse céanna, ag comhlacht amharclannaíochta na n-óg, AnnÓg, i gCiarraí. Beidh ceol agus amhráin á gcur leis an léiriú forbartha ag ceoltóirí óga traidisiúnta ag obair le Fèisean nan Gàidheal i nGarbhchríocha agus Oileáin na hAlban.

Branwen
An original music and drama production based on ancient themes, developed collaboratively by young people in Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

The Story
Originally a network of tales passed down orally by storytellers during the 'Dark Ages', the medieval Welsh text Y Mabinogi was gathered together by monks in the tenth and eleventh centuries. Like The Tain in Ireland and The Odyssey in Greece from the same period, it is essentially a collection of diverse stories. One 'cangen' or branch of Y Mabinogi focuses on the tragic life of the beautiful Branwen, daughter of the High King of Britain, the cruelty and sadness she experiences on her marriage to a prince in Ireland, and the war, bloodshed and eventual reconciliation that follow.

Betrayed, humiliated and persecuted in a foreign country after a fairytale wedding, Branwen confides her misery to her pet starling. This 'messenger-bird' flies home across the Irish Sea and alerts Branwen's father Bran to her situation. Bran, who is a giant, wades back across the sea towing his army in a a mighty flotilla of boats, and before long a bloody war is taking place on Irish soil. The possession of a magic cauldron of life renewal notwithstanding, the carnage is immense, and before peace is finally achieved Bran has lost his head, both populations have been decimated, and Branwen dies of a broken heart. Like many mythological stories, Branwen is rich in themes that the young people themselves will tease out and dramatise.

The Production
The story of Branwen has been recreated for use in this piece by the writer Rhiannon Ifans, who specialises in mythological and historical fiction for teenagers, and whose work has been published in English and Irish as well as Welsh. The first half of the action takes place in ancient Wales, and a new dramatic version in the Welsh language will be devised this autumn and winter by young people at Theatr Felinfach in Ceredigion. The second half is set in Ireland, and will be worked up in Irish, over the same period, by young people at AnnÒg, a youth theatre group in County Kerry. Music and songs to embellish the entire production will be developed by young traditional musicians working with Fèisean nan Gàidheal in the Highlands and Islands of Western Scotland.

6 - 7 Eanair ag 6 - 8 i.n. Chun na Farraige Síos

An lab
Chun na Farraige Síos,
Ceiliúradh is ea é de chumhacht na Bandachta ar Nollaig traidisiúnta na mBan. Spreagtha ag an dráma Chun na Farraige Síos le JM Synge, tháinig ealaíontóir Áine Ní Chíobháin agus Aisteoir/File Áine Moynihan le chéile le ceoltóir Rónán Ó Snodaigh ó Kila chun imeacht ealaíne nua agus beo a chruthú. Tugtar Chun na Farraige Síos ar an saothar seo leis. Déanann an bheirt ealaíontóir scrúdú agus léiriú ar an dtionchar atá ag an bhfarraige ar a saoil. Baineann siad leas as na féidearthachtaí go léir a bhaineann le spás amharclainne chun a gcuid oibre a chur i láthair. Tá íomhánna Áine Ní Chíobháin, atá lán de mhothúcháin agus cumhacht agus focail fhileata, liriceacha Áine Moynihan, neartaithe ag an gcaidreamh ealaíne fad-téarmach atá eatarthu. Cuireann an scór, cumtha go speisialta agus seinnte ag Rónán Ó Snodaigh go mór le h-atmaisféar draíochtach na h-insealbhaithe seo.

Chun na farraige Síos is a celebration of the power of the Feminine on Nollaig na mBan, the traditional Women's Christmas. Inspired by JM Synge's drama Riders to the Sea, artist Áine Ní Chíobháin and actor/poet Áine Moynihan have teamed up with musician Rónán Ó Snodaigh of Kila to create an original, live art event. The piece is called Chun na Farraige Síos. The artists explore their individual relationships with the sea, while exploiting the myriad possibilities of a theatrical space. Áine Ní Chíobháin's visceral and powerful images and Áine Moynihan's evocative and lyrical words are shaped by their long-term creative partnership. This atmospheric work is underpinned by a haunting score specially composed and performed by Rónán Ó Snodaigh.

Ach go raibh fadhb acu: poll dubh gránna beo a bhí sa domhain an t-am sin, ollphéist! An éireodh leo an domhain a chloí agus a athchruthú? An dtiocfadh éinne as slán?
