Kind Words Spoken

‘Minor Monuments is beautifully poised between the vivid recollection of experience and subtle reflections on the nature of memory itself. Ian Maleny writes with both a poetic serenity and a starting immediacy, a combination as rare as it is absorbing.’ Fintan O’Toole

Minor Monuments

Dates: 15 Nov - 16 Nov

Show Time: 7.45pm

Tickets: €12-14

Set around a small family farm on the edge of a bog, a few miles from the river Shannon, Minor Monuments is a live audio-visual essay unfolding from the landscape of the Irish midlands. Taking in the physical and philosophical power of sound and music, and the effects of Alzheimer’s disease on a family, Ian Maleney questions the nature of home, memory, and the complex nature of belonging.  

The show weaves live reading with voice recordings, music, the ambient sound of the landscape from Ian’s home place, and original film footage shot by Jamie Goldrick 

A thought-provoking and quietly devastating meditation on family and loss, Minor Monuments is a beautiful and unique literary experience. Based on the widely acclaimed book of the same name published by the unstoppable hit-makers, Tramp Press.

Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS.
