The National Concert Hall has revealed its plans for a new series of gigs and cultural performances titled 'Imagining Home'.
The series will take place as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme, and will run at the Hall from Monday, March 28th to Sunday, April 3rd and will see the likes of Glen Hansard, Roseanne Cash and more big names on the bill.
Two shows - entitled 'Into Europe' (March 30th) and 'On Revolution' (March 31st) will also run as part of the programme.
'Into Europe' explores Ireland’s place in European culture with a focus on the Irish republican tradition, and features Lisa Dwan performing Beckett's 'Not I' and 'Footfalls', Fintan O'Toole discussing Roger Casement and human rights, and music from Barry Douglas (piano) and chamber orchestra Camerata Ireland.
'On Revolution' is an evening of words and music, that will see work performed by Joseph O’Neill, Ahdaf Soueif, Hisham Matar, Pankaj Mishra, Adam Zagajewski and Colm Tóibín. The focus is on revolutionary ideals and their impact, with an international gathering of writers and commentators from Ireland, Egypt, Libya, India and Europe. The evening will also see the premiere of 'Casement/Conrad', a new musical work by author Colm Toibin and Donnacha Dennehy with Crash Ensemble.
