SMALL WONDERS - THE ART OF THE SHORT STORY

Dates: 14 Jun - 14 Jun

Tickets: €10

At its best, the short story form is an elegant and precise distillation of the human experience. This exclusive double-header sees two of its most celebrated exponents come together in one unmissable event. For Tobias Wolff – one of the great masters of the form – its challenges are its own rewards – for both writer and reader: ‘The reader really has to step up to the plate and read a short story.’ Best known on this side of the Atlantic for his dazzling memoirs This Boy’s Life and In Pharaoh’s Army, Wolff made his name – alongside Raymond Carver – for his short stories, many now contemporary American classics. Like Wolff, Dublin-born novelist Anne Enright cut her teeth on the short story form – from the New Yorker and the Paris Review to her Rooney Prize -winning first collection The Portable Virgin (1991). The follow-up to her Booker-winning novel The Gathering, Taking Pictures reveals a short story specialist at the top of her game, providing vivid snapshots of fractured lives with trademark subversive wit.

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,…
