A note from the Artistic Director
April and May are always exciting here at Triskel, with some annual celebrations and festivals to look forward to, and some exciting new work to see and hear.
Among our highlights for April we’re delighted to be screening The Frames: In Deep shade – the wonderful documentary by filmmaker Conor Masterson and a must see for fans of this seminal group.
Saturday 20th April is World Record Store Day, and so our partners in crime PLUGD Records and The Black Mariah present the amazing Demdike Stare in Christchurch – one of those events that will be unforgettable I think.
Programmed by Cork City Library and Triskel, the 9th Cork World Book Fest is bringing internationally acclaimed writers to Cork. Highlights include the screening of ‘Girl With Green Eyes’ as a tribute to Edna O’Brien who herself will be taking part in the Festival; Polish writer Pawel Huelle, whose collection ‘Cold Sea Stories’ has been longlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and a focus on the revolution on Syria when the Syrian writer Khaled Khalifa will be a special guest. Guest curator Paul Muldoon has programmed the Pulitzer prize winning poet Tracy K. Smith and Michael Dickman to close the festival.
More to come in May with the Cork International Choral Festival and a new solo exhibition by painter Eamon Colman. More on these and other May events soon!
