Artist, Poet and Musician enter The Lab to re-invent Nollaig na mBan
On January 6th, An Lab Theatre in Dingle presents a new work that brings together visual art, poetry and music. It’s 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.
Open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, December 7th and 8th between 6pm and 8pm.This project is funded by Ealaín na Gaeltachta.
