The Alphabet of Birds

October 01 @ 12:00 am - October 01 @ 12:00 am

Sunday Mass and sea swimming; bird alphabets and stone collecting; Goya and Monet; the Stations of the Cross and the Sacred Heart of Jesus; bedrooms and bedsits; insomnia and parental love. Writer and artist Sara Baume covers wide ground in this spellbinding audio-visual essay. Ultimately, it’s a show about our obsessions and passions – the multitude of rituals that fill our daily lives with meaning. The Alphabet of Birds is the second stage show from arts magazine and production company Holy Show, generously supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and the Western Development Commission in partnership with Spot-Lit. Writer: Sara Baume Live Music: Irene Buckley Artists featured in films: Natalia Beylis, Gary Coyle, Laura Fitzgerald Films Director: Jamie Goldrick Creative Director: Brendan Mac Evilly
