The next monthly KILMAINHAM ARTS CLUB is on November 5th and we have an unusual and eclectic night for you to enjoy. Due to winter coming in, we will be starting at 8.30pm and wrapping up 10.30pm, just to warn you because we don’t want you to miss half the night. Although of course, you are welcome along at whatever time you can make it for however long you can, it remains a relaxed night. please pass this email on to anyone you think would enjoy a great night of the arts, we are in the Patriots Inn, Kilmainham and there is no cover charge, all are welcome.
Our line-up for the night presents some of the very best of what is going on around us in the arts world and a chance to chat to artists and connect with like-minded individuals also. Below is some of what we have in store for you:
A new festival established by Howard Linnane to
focus attention on the contribution made by Irish writers to the Gothic/Horror genre in literature and hence to movies has been established, we will have a screening of one short horror film as a ‘sampler’ coupled with a reading aloud of a LeFanu short story or of an extract from Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ (or from one of the plays based on it) to give a flavour of the festival programme Dublin’s Halloween Festival of Gothic Horrors
Rafiqa Rajab will be chatting about the process of assembling the exhibition entitled
Land of Sheba which featured Yemeni artists for the Ranelagh Arts Festival
As we are keen to explore all genres of the arts the animator Laura Murray will show her film "Trapped" it is a 2d animated short film that she writes ‘is an autobiographical film and is told in a chase sequence of a fox getting chased by demonic dogs’.
Continuing the story of
Bricks In The Rain exhibition in Farmleigh which writer Eleanor Flegg touched upon at last Arts Club we are delighted to present Ceramic Artist/Designer Sinead Glynn showing images of the art which was resultant of the artists’ time in China and chatting about the final exhibition in Fuping.
Musically we have ‘Bipo’, aka host of
La Dernier Paradis, who will sing a few songs from a Bowie-esque landscape with his own added colour.
Our Featured poet is Stephen James Smith runner up in the All Ireland Slam Final in 2008, he represented Leinster in the BBC Radio 4 Irish Slam Final 2007.
We are delighted to host visiting French musicians Ici & Lui they have a pop-electro-jazz show.
"Pop Electro Jazz, this is the title of our first LP too. The instruments, the samples of Japanese voices, the taste of modern Jazz… So many areas that make the specificity of our music. Two feet on the ground with the head in the sky, machines are played as if they were genuine instruments." the brothers who are living in Paris will also be playing support to The 68’s who play in the Patriots Inn this coming Friday November 2nd.
