On Wednesday 6th June in The Workman's Club IMRAM and the Dublin Writers Festival are hosting The Night Town Project - A Celebration Of Dublin In Darkness.
The NIGHT TOWN PROJECT is a special bi-lingual multi-media project that celebrates the landscapes of Dublin at night. Four poets will read new work responding to images from photographers Jim Berkeley and Mark Granier; the resulting fusion will be transformed into beautiful on- screen projections by designer Margaret Lonergan, and performed to new music by acclaimed composer and musician Seán Mac Erlaine.
Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh’s poetry has been described by Livia Brennan as ‘reveling in urban life in all its crowded energy and cacophony’.
Colm Keegan was the 2011 All-Ireland Poetry Slam Champion; a potent new voice, his first collection Don’t Go There has just been published.
Peter Sirr’s poetry explores how the contemporary and the historical meld in Dublin, and how ‘the buried city shows itself’.
Gabriel Rosenstock is one of Ireland’s foremost poets, whose work Gwyneth Lewis has praised for its ‘beauty, humour and precision’.
