EILÉAN NÍ CHUILLEANÁIN AND HARRY CLIFTON

Dates: 13 Jun - 13 Jun

Tickets: €8

Two of Dublin’s most respected voices share the stage and their literary heritage in this double-header of contemporary Irish poetry.

Eiléan Ni Chuilleanáin’s six volumes of poetry are characterised by an enigmatic otherworldliness and economy of language. Her awards include the Patrick Kavanagh Prize and the O’Shaughnessy Award of the Irish- American Cultural Institute, an honour which placed Chuilleanáin ‘among the very best poets of her generation.’ A new Gallery Press / Faber retrospective underlines her status as a major literary figure.

Harry Clifton follows in the footsteps of Seamus Heaney and Derek Mahon as the latest recipient of the coveted Irish Times Poetry Now Award. The winning collection – Secular Eden: Paris Notebooks – is the poet’s first in 14 years. Praised for its ‘masterful fluency’ (Irish Times) and ‘limitless cultural curiosity’ (C.K.Williams), it’s a dazzling meditation on human happiness in a secular age. ‘There is something second-sighted about Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin’s work. Her poems see things anew, in a rinsed and dreamstruck light.’

Seamus Heaney ‘Arguably the first great work of Irish poetic post-modernism.’

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
