CLÁR IMRAM 2021

ÁIT A gCANANN NA hAINGIL

TIONSCADAL JOHN PRINE
Where the Angels Sing: The John Prine Project
Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire | €25/23
11 Samhain/November 8.00pm

Duine de liriceoirí móra Mheiriceá ba ea John Prine agus an-lucht leanúna aige in Éirinn. Chleacht sé stíleanna éagsúla, ceol na ndaoine, bluegrass, racabilí agus ceolta tuaithe. Croiniceoir na ngnáthdhaoine ab ea é agus is i gcaint na ndaoine a scríobh sé. Bíonn greann go minic sna liricí aige agus é ag plé le téamaí an ghrá, dul in aois, agóid shóisialta agus téamaí eile nach iad. Eisiachas Proustach, a thug Bob Dylan ar a shaothar.

Cuimsíonn Áit a gCanann na hAingil an chuid is fearr dá shaothar agus é aistrithe go healaíonta ag Art Hughes agus Gabriel Rosenstock. Is iad na haingil a chuirfidh an saothar mór seo i láthair ná Liam Ó Maonlaí (guth, pianó, organ béil), Peter O’Toole (giotár) agus Hilary Bow (guth agus fonnadóireacht taca). Chruthaigh Margaret Lonergan íomhánna de na liricí le teilgean ar scáileán, íomhánna cartlainne agus íomhánna ealaíne a bheidh ag freagairt d’ábhar na n-amhrán.

John Prine was one of America’s greatest songwriters in the twentieth century, and much loved in Ireland. His styles covered folk, bluegrass, rockabilly and country – and his rich, plain-spoken songs chronicled the lives of everyday working people Where the Angels Sing includes a selection of Prine’s very best songs – from ‘Lake Marie’ to ‘Angel from Montgomery’ and ‘Summer’s End’ – rendered into exquisite Irish by Art Hughes and Gabriel Rosenstock. They will be performed live by Liam Ó Maonlaí (vocals, piano, harmonica), Peter O’Toole (guitar) and Hilary Bow (vocals). Margaret Lonergan has created screen projections of the lyrics featuring archive images of Prine fused with art reflecting the content of the songs.

GLASADH

GREENGRAYLOCKDOWN
Rody Gorman
 
Online Film | Saor in aisce/Free
16 Samhain/November 8.00pm

Le linn na dianghlasála a tharla de dheasca Covid-19, chum Rody Gorman sraith dánta iontacha, breis is céad díobh, i nGaeilge na hAlban agus i mBéarla. Dialann liriceach, d’fhéadfá a rá, den tréimhse aisteach úd nuair a bhí an cine daonna gan chosaint. Ar an Eilean Sgitheanach (Eilean a’ Cheò) a bhí Rody agus an dúlra mar chompánach aige: an chuach ag glaoch is an tsailchuach faoi bhláth, na coinnle corra á bheannú ón gcnoc. Tá greann ann chomh maith nuair is céilí beag ag dhá cheann an tsiopa é an scaradh sóisialta, nó é ag insint scéilíní don chlapsholas ar zúm. Tá an bhuairt ann, gan amhras, an tsochraid gan mórán sochraideoirí, an píobaire aonair. Ina dhiaidh sin is uile, bhraithfeá go bhfuil an pobal ann láidir fós, agus laethanta ciúnais agus áilleachta á gceiliúradh acu.

Beidh roinnt de na dánta sin á n-aithris ag an bhfile féin mar chuid den seó Glasadh. Cloisfear ceol atmaisféarach agus glórtha ón dúlra, agus feicfear grianghraif is obair ealaíne a bheidh ag freagairt do na dánta.

During the covid-19 lockdown, Rody Gorman wrote a series of over a hundred remarkable poems in Scottish Gaelic and English that form a lyrical diary of the strange time in which an epidemic became a pandemic, and humanity found itself without defences. Within lockdown on the Isle of Skye, Gorman found himself attending to nature – from the sounds of the cuckoo to the flourishing of violets and bluebells on the hillsides. There are comic moments where social distancing becomes a ‘wee ceilidh at the two ends of the shop’ or of ‘telling stories to dusk’ on zoom. Here also are sad moments, of sparsely attended funerals and lone pipers. But within these poems there is a keen sense of life and community surviving against the odds, and a celebration of days of silence and beauty. 

Glasadh features a selection of these poems recited by Gorman himself, and accompanied by music and sound effects composed by Liam Grant, and fused with photos and art responding to the texts, created by Margaret Lonergan.

DRITHLIÚ AISTEACH

FILÍOCHT GEORG TRAKL
An Uncanny Glitter: The Poetry of Georg Trakl
 
Two Online Films | Saor in aisce/Free
17 Samhain/November

Duine de na filí liriceacha ba thábhachtaí san aois seo caite ab ea Georg Trakl. Tá a chuid filíochta ar maos leis an mbás catastrófach, íomhánna cogaidh, ionfhabhtú, plá, seachmall – ach is aisteach cé chomh hálainn is atá páirc an áir aige, dathanna agus comharthaí siombalacha, fíoracha aislingeacha ag teacht is ag imeacht ina n-aingil aeracha. Duine d’fhilí cosmacha na Gearmáinise, ar aon chéim le Rilke.

AN UNCANNY GLITTER

THE POETRY OF GEORG TRAKL

Online Film 7.00pm

Georg Trakl is one of the most important lyric poets of the twentieth century. His apocalyptic poetry is awash with images of death, war, infection – but are also uncannily beautiful in their use of symbolic colours and signs, and in the appearance and vanishing of dreamlike figures and strange angels. Of his work, Herbert Lindenberger commented ‘he lofty stance, the cosmic range, and the haunting music of Trakl’s poetry now mark him, with Rilke, as perhaps the last great representative of what could be called the sublime tradition in German.’

An Uncanny Glitter features Irish language versions of Trakl’s work by Gabriel Rosenstock, accompanied by visual interpretations of the poems by Margaret Lonergan and a haunting soundtrack composed by Seán Mac Erlaine.

MÓROÍCHE FILÍOCHTA
Áine Ní Ghlinn, Róisín Sheehy, Alan Titley, Andreas Vogel
Museum of Literature Ireland | Saor in aisce/Free
25 Samhain/November 7.00pm

Laureate na nÓg í Áine Ní Ghlinn agus tá níos mó ná triocha leabhar tagtha óna peann, saothar a chuimsíonn gearrfhicsean, úrscéalta, filíocht, agus drámaí don aos óg. Sa chnuasach is déanaí uaithi Rúin Oscailte, déantar iniúchadh ar an stair, ar an gcuimhne, ar an teaghlach agus ar an ealaín, dánta a bhíonn ag spraoi le foirm ach atá glé ina gcuid mothúchán. Damhsóir comhaimseartha í Róisín Sheehy, cóiréagrafaí, drámadóir agus file. Sa chéad chnuasach uaithi, Líomóidi ‘s Rubarb iniúchtar an ealaín, an stair, tírdhreach, béaloideas agus dúlra go liriceach grástúil. Fathach litríochta é Alan Titley – úrscéalaí, scoláire, gearrscéalaí, colúnaí, file, criticeoir agus drámadóir. Baineann sé leas as gach saghas foirme sa saothar filíochta is déanaí uaidh, ón haiku go dtí an soinéad – agus an liodán féin – dánta atá greannmhar séimh, nó searbh agus polaitiúil. As Bochum na Gearmáine d’Andreas Vogel agus é ag cur faoi i Leitir Móir anois. I measc na leabhar uaidh tá Chomh Gar ‘gus is Féidir (Nicht näher) , iniúchadh ar na spásanna idir thíortha, idir theangacha agus idir dhaoine. Sa chnuasach is déanaí uaidh, thángamar-chonaiceamar-cosamar cuirtear micreafhilíocht inár láthair a mheabhródh Sappho na sean-Ghréige duit.

Áine Ní Ghlinn is the current Laureate na nÓg, and the author of over thirty books, covering short fiction, novels, poetry, and plays for young audiences. Her latest poetry collection Rúin Oscailte explores themes of history, memory, family and art in poems that play with form but always speak with emotional clarity. Róisín Sheehy is a contemporary dancer, choreographer, playwright and poet. Her début collection Líomóidi ‘s Rubarb explores art, history, landscape, folklore and nature with an elegant lyricism. Alan Titley is a mighty presence in Irish letters – a novelist, short-story writer, essayist, critic and dramatist. In his recently published poetry collections Rabhadh Dánta and Liricí Gearra he plays with every form imaginable, from the haiku to the sonnet and the litany, in poems that shift frok the gently witty to the politically caustic. Andrea Vogel hails from the Ruhr region of Germany, and now lives in Conamara. His collections include Chomh Gar ‘gus is Féidir (Nicht näher), in which he explores ‘the spaces between countries, between languages, between people.’ In his latest collection thángamar chonaiceamar cosamar he presents micro-poetry touches on with philosophy and language in a way that echoes Sappho’s fragmented poems.

Baile Átha Cliath, Dún Laoghaire, Cill Mhantáin agus Ríocht ársa Chualann a spreagann saothar gleoite seo Rody Gorman, tírdhreach agus cuimhní fite fuaite ina chéile. Tugtar ar imram sinn ar fharraige focal ó Mhuilte Uí Bheoláin agus Droichead Portobello i gcroílár na hardchathrach, via tránna Chuas an Ghainimh agus Rinn na Mara, go dtí sliabh eibhir Chipiúr agus lochanna Chill Mhantáin. Machnamh ar aislingí na hóige atá sa seó cumasach seo, le híomhánna scaileáin ó Mhargaret Lonergan agus fuaimdhreacha beo á gcruthú agus á seinm ag Seán Mac Erlaine.

Dublin, Dún Laoghaire, Wicklow and the ancient Kingdom of Cuala are at the heart of Rody Gorman’s exquisite poetic pilgrimage through landscape and memory. In this series of tercets – three line poems in Irish and in English – Gorman takes us on a journey from Bolan’s Mill and Portobello Bridge in Dublin city, via the beaches of Sandymount and Seapoint, to the granite mountain of Kippure and the lakes of Wicklow. He recalls school days ‘on Charleville Road with Ms O’Rourke’s books’; a childhood ‘vision-poem dream beside the Poddle’; and sees himself ‘back on my own in Bewley’s, our salon de thé, like it was only yesterday and in 1966’. 

Rody reads to visuals created by artist Margaret Lonergan and soundscapes created and performed by composer and musician Seán Mac Erlaine. Film editing by Liam Grant.

14 Nollaig/December 8.00pm

Tá triúr filí, duine acu i mBéarla agus an bheirt eile i nGaeilge, ag dul i ngleic le téama an tsneachta sa tionscadal seo. Duine acu is ea Mícheál Ó hAodha, údar an tsaothair Leabhar Dubh an tSneachta, cnuasach gearrdhánta ata ag ple le cuimhne, caillteanas agus sneachta. File agus ealaíontóir colláise í Helen Ivory, údar Waiting for Bluebeard agus The Breakfast Machine. Domhan suaite a léiríonn sí, dar le Penelope Shuttle, suaite ach meallacach mar sin féin, lán d’íoróin is míshuaimhneas. Léifidh Gabriel Rosenstock haiku leis an máistir Issa, ó cheantar an tsneachta Shinano sa tSeapáin, traschruthaithe i nGaeilge. Tá íomhánna againn ó Margaret Lonergan agus tionlacan ceoil ó Enda Reilly.

The Snow Project features three poets – two in Irish, one in English – exploring the theme of snow. Mícheál Ó hAodha has just recently published Leabhar Dubh an tSneachta, in which he explores themes of loss, memory and snow. Helen Ivory is a poet and collage artist, and the author of Waiting for Bluebeard and The Breakfast Machine. Penelope Shuttle has described her work as creating ‘a troubled yet beguiling world rich in irony and disquiet’. Gabriel Rosenstock reads Irish transcreations of a selection of haiku by Issa inspired by the snowy landscapes of Shinano in Japan. Margaret Lonergan has created beautiful visuals, whilst the poets read to musical accompaniment from Enda Reilly. Film editing by Liam Grant.

MIS

BIDDY JENKINSON
Online Film | Saor in aisce/Free
15 Nollaig/December 8.00pm

Athinsint ar rómáns meánaoiseach é Mis de chuid Biddy Jenkinson, tour-de-force amach is amach. Téann Mis, iníon le Dáire Déadgheal, le gealaigh nuair a thagann sí ar chorp a hathar ar pháirc an áir i ndiaidh Chath Fionntrá. Caitheann sí trí chéad bliain ar Shlibh Mis i gCiarraí agus i beo ar shlad is ar chanablacht, dochar mór á dhéanamh aici don dúiche. Dála Shuibhne Geilt, gabhann sí cruth éin chuici féin, an crotach, an spideog, an charóg liath, an colm bán.

Gealtachas, foréigean, gnéas agus greann, saothar mealltach mistéireach. Chruthaigh Enda Reilly, cumadóir agus giotáraí, cúlra ceoil don údar agus chruthaigh Margaret Lonergan íomhánna scanrúla. 

Mis by Biddy Jenkinson is a tour-de-force retelling of an Irish medieval romance. Mis, the daughter of Dáire Déadgheal, goes mad when she finds her father’s body on the battlefield after Cath Fionntrá (The Battle of Ventry). She then spends three hundred years, to the great harm of the land, surviving on plunder and cannibalism on Sliabh Mis in Kerry. Like Mad Sweeney, she takes the form of birds – curlews, robins, scald crows, and white doves. 

Writing in The Stinging Fly, critic Caitlín Nic Íomhair described Mis as ‘full blooded, compelling and even strangely alluring’ in its exploration of the ‘big four: madness, violence, sex and humour’. In this film Biddy reads Mis to a musical backdrop created by composer and guitarist Enda Reilly and stunning images from Margaret Lonergan. Film editing by Liam Grant.

Ag tagairt don Ghaeilge, deir sí: ‘Tá seilbh ag an teanga orm. Is í an teanga a chruthaigh is a mhúnlaigh mé. Táimid doscartha óna chéile in aon taipéis chasta amháin.’ Is Síc-Fhile í agus sa chéad leabhar filíochta uaithi, Dánta Póca, cantar na limistéir mhothúchánacha sin atá idir na réimsí fisiceacha agus síceolaíochta.

Seachtó haiku ar fad agus iad á gcur i láthair ag an dearthóir Kieran Nolan ar shleamhnáin áille le haghaidh na meán sóisialta.

In this project, we are brought in a world of transient beauty as captured by Japanese haiku poets through the ages. Transcreated into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock, and accompanied by the original Japanese texts, this selection of seventy haiku is beautifully presented by designer Kieran Nolan in slides that will appear on social media. Haiku sourced from Blue Willow Haiku World.

ÉIGSE CHINÉITEACH

KINETIC POETRY

Léiríonn an tionscadal seo réimse leathan filíochta ó fhilí aitheanta agus filí atá ag teacht chun cinn le tamaillín anuas. Sna gearrscannáin chinéiteacha seo dá saothar tá a ndéantúis curtha in iúl le cabhair ón gceamara agus ón gclóghrafaíocht. Cloisfear guthanna na bhfilí féin. Ciarán Ó Meachair atá i mbun deartha.

This project features a wide range of work from established and new poets rendered into short kinetic text films that feature imaginative visual and typographic interpretations of their work. We hear the voices of the poets themselves, and the design is by Ciarán Ó Meachair.
