Sat 31 Oct., 9.30pm.
A collaboration between visual artist Nic Flanagan and musician / composer Owen Kilfeather. The performance employs Irish mythology as a means of engaging with, and recontextualising folkloric dialogue in contemporary thought - specifically, the Hag of Bhéara, the ‘Queen of Winter’, a seasonal spirit whose stories are rich in humour, humanity and conflict.
She is said to rule the months between Samhain (the first day of winter marked on November 1st) and Bealtaine (the first day of summer). The performance on Saturday night, October 31st is a reawakening act. This performance/sound piece is a continuation of a collaboration established by The Model this summer.
