PORT A’ tSAOIL: TIONSCADAL KATE BUSH as part of IMRAM
Smock Alley Theatre – Friday, November 18 at 8pm.
Kate Bush is an artist like none other – weaving rock, classical and folk music to extraordinary effect. Her lyrics are highly dramatic, drawing on a wide range of literary and cinematic sources, exploring themes of childhood, love, death, war and mythology.
On Friday, November 18, at Dublin’s Smock Alley Theatre, Caitríona O’Leary – acclaimed by Crescendo Magazine for ‘her angelic and etheral voice – will perform the very best of Bush’s songs, translated into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock. She will be joined by Nick Roth (keyboard), Adrian Hart (fiddle), Éamonn Galldubh (flute, whistles, uilleann pipes), David Redmond (double bass) and Matt Jacobson (drums). The show features on-screen projections of the lyrics with images created by Margaret Lonergan.
IMRAM works to put Irish language literature at the heart of our nation’s public life, through an innovative annual festival, supporting writers and publishers, encouraging the sale of books, provoking debate, and engaging Irish speakers and Irish learners across Ireland and the diaspora.
