ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:

Over the past 3 years Noelle Ní Ríagáin and Linda Cullen have been in collaboration on project called “Women in Ceremony”. The project began when we asked ourselves the question. “If women held the ceremonies what could they look like?” Inspired by Irish customs, they will use Aerial dance, floor movement and song to create a solstice cerebration, here in Killeagh.

Patrick Doyle is a Writer / Poet / Archaeologist. Everything within the realm of literature and culture floats his boat. Sharing stories, nature, sunsets and songs, there you have the earth in all its beauty and blessedness. Patrick’s greatest achievement was to witness his son being born. Patrick surely knows where a true man’s heart lay’s.

Cormac Moholly began his solo career in 2000 after leaving Belfast Circus School, from teaching youth workshops to doing street performances up and down the country. Recently his solo work is tied into Circus Factory. He gladly directs upcoming practitioners, developing both his own directorial skills and encouraging a contemporary practice in Circus Factory members.

Carriage Bearance Severance

SEPTEMBER 26 @ 5PM

Rain or shine! We’re moving across the street to the beer garden at KENNEDY’S BAR.

The audience will be more comfortable there, in a sheltered and heated area where you can have a sip of something nice while you watch. We’d love for you to come for all 90 minutes, but it’s okay to drop in or move around the space, get a drink, go to the loo, etc.

Created between 2015 and 2021, Carriage Bearance Severance is a performance trilogy by Matty Davis and Ben Gould that marks the trajectory of a relationship forged by shifting need, desire, and growth. Davis and Gould’s work together began as an investigation of reliance, control, and care. Saturated by surgery, healing, friendship, and mutual learning, their research delineated new bounds of freedom and possibility. What could be shared, reciprocated, and endured was soon transfigured by both personal and global contexts that fostered questions regarding separateness, autonomy, and new forms of radical empathy. As physical and emotional worlds evolve, all is remembered yet actively growing.

Made possible by the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme 2021 supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and Cork County Council.


CULTURE NIGHT
Friday September 17th at 16:00, 18:00 & 21:00
Free, no booking required

Do you ever wonder what the future will look like? 

Blanche Godivier and Lucie Lesclauze of the Dahu Collective invite you on a journey filled with surprising scenarios from the future in this contemporary dance duet.

Turfu Project is an interactive performance – you will be able to make choices that will change the whole course of the piece. Lay your eyes on a new planet, or perhaps meet cyborgs! All of these stories were developed with people the Paris-based dancers met during their Unexpected Spaces Residency in Killeagh. In fact, interviewing members of the community was an essential part of the creation process as the choreographers collected thoughts about the future. Contributions came from both children and adults, and the resulting performance welcomes people of all ages!

Unexpected Spaces is Greywood Arts’ public art residency, supported by Cork County Council, which provides artists with a month-long residency and production of a public artwork.

LOCATIONS:
4 & 6pm: Woodview Housing Estate Green
9pm: Mogeely Road Green (across from the creche)

ONLINE: 
– Livestream details TBA
– Excerpts from the project were adapted to 7 sites throughout the village centre. Find those films here.

Meeting on Friday afternoons, young people will use photography to create a series of postcards and posters that explore their relationship to place through a visual narrative of the spaces they inhabit with artist Aoife Banville and staff from Greywood Arts.
