NIGHTHAWKS AT THE DUBLIN BOOK FESTIVAL

TUCAN

Túcan are an instrumental acoustic guitar-based group that will blow your socks off.  In 2009 they released their debut album, Aliquot Strings, and it wasn’t long before they were invited on tour by everyone from Rodrigo y Gabriela to Alabama 3.  They are travelling all the way from Sligo to play the CUBE on March 5th – so please be sure to give them a very warm Dublin welcome!  See www.tucanmusic.com. (Caption: Donal and Pearse from Túcan)

FOIL, ARMS AND HOG

Foil, Arms and Hog are quite simply the best comedy sketch group to emerge in Ireland in recent years.  They have already put on two critically-acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and are heading back for more praise next August.  See www.foilarmsandhog.ie.

TOTALLY WIRED

Totally Wired are Lorcan Hughes and Emmet Quinn, and they perform comic songs that are guaranteed to make you laugh.  They reached the final of the Bulmers Comedy Competition in 2009, and now appear regularly on RTE TV’s Republic of Telly.

COLM LIDDY

Colm is a fiction writer with a sharp sense of humour.  His first book, I Love You, But… 40 Fights Between Husbands and Wives, was published in 2009 and very well received.  His follow-up, Not Quite a Fairytale, will be published by Penguin this coming April. See www.colmliddy.com.

HELENE HUTCHINSON

Helene is a soprano with a great deal of experience as a soloist.  She is a scholarship student at the D.I.T. Conservatory of Music and Drama, and has won numerous first-prize awards and bursaries throughout the country.  Helene regularly performs with the classical music group Jade Strings, but will be performing with a classical guitarist on March 5th.  See www.helenehutchinson.com.

COLM KEEGAN

Colm is a Dublin performance poet.  He is the current All-Ireland Poetry Slam Champion and is a regular contributor to Arena on RTE Radio 1.  Colm has also been shortlisted four times for the Sunday Tribune’s Hennessy XO Literary Awards.  And, on top of all that, Colm is also one of the organisers of Nighthawks at the Cobalt.

LENNON v McCARTNEY

At last – a short play that definitively sorts out who is greater – John Lennon or Paul McCartney.  Well… sort of…  This play has been performed everywhere from the main stage at the International Beatles Festival in Liverpool to the main stage at Whelan’s in Dublin.  It’s a must-see for all Beatle fans!  Lennon v McCartney is written and directed by Stephen Kennedy, and performed by Dylan McDonough and Kevin McGahern.

As part of the 2011 Dublin Book Festival programme at Project Arts Centre

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,…
