|"Bohemian Bodies" talk at the Irish Architectural Archive about to begin...|
Of course I have been steeped in this material, between working on my upcoming crowd-funded film "1943 - A Dance Odyssey", based on Liam O'Laoghaire's film "Dance School", and the tiny tots therein; my ongoing TG4 project "Dance Emergency", and the book, the book, which springs eternal... So it was good to give it an airing in public, and I'm relieved that talk is over and delivered, to be honest! It is ready to go now, for anyone else who wants to book it. Just drop me an email.
Oh yes, and the exhibition - "Bohemians - Et Ce Chant dans mon Coeur". It hasn't disappeared you know. After a great month in Culturlann Sweeney, Kilkee, County Clare in August/September, 2012, the prints are in waiting in Limerick for an exhibition space to become available. That's all I can say for the moment, but watch this space, it's coming...

The Banner Theatre Company, including Mary Cusack, a former schoolmate of
mine from Cahercon Salesian Boarding School, in Kildysert, County Clare, did a wonderful job performing Jacqueline Robinson's poems in English. I recorded them on my Handy Zoom recorder, have a listen to "7 Songs from my Heart" by Jacqueline Robinson: They were impressive, and it was really great to hear those handwritten words performed (directed by Jenny Bassett, the theatre manager) - I wonder if they were ever performed in a theatre before?
On Culture Night we had a wonderful extravaganza of dance in conjunction with the exhibition, from Dinan School of Dance, Ennis, to Siobhan ni Dhuinin, who had just completed her MA in Contemporary Dance at University of Limerick. The Banner Theatre Company performed the poetry again, and I gave a talk on Modern Dance.

In the meantime I am looking forward to hosting the Q & A with Catherine Owens this evening after the JDIFF premiere of her 3D film "Colin Dunne - Sculpting Space".
