The House Presents
The House Presents is a monthly event presenting some of the most interesting artists around.. We have a very special night planned for March as part of the Five Lamps Arts Festival again this year with the wonderful artists Nicole Rourke, Caroline Moreau and finally the multi-talented Deirdre Murphy (with Band).
Nicole has been involved in theatre for over 20 years. She trained with Tmu-Na Theatre Company, a physical theatre company based in the Middle East. Her work has received critical acclaim at festivals in Ireland, the UK, Poland, Singapore and the Middle East.
Over the last number of years, she has written and performed spoken word pieces/monologues for cabarets and small festivals. One such piece, The Suitcase Milonguera played at various Tango festivals and at the Electric Picnic. This play was created in collaboration with Tango dancer, Hernan Catvin.
Nicole is currently working on a script for a docu-drama about tango and rage which is set between Ireland and Argentina. She is also a creative workshop facilitator and is co-founder/ co-director of Big Smoke Writing Factory.
Deirdre Murphy (writer, composer, choreographer) is interested in making life more accommodating, grounding, and stimulating. She does this by performing, writing music, making theatre, dancing, teaching yoga, dance, and acroyoga, training circus, throwing parties, raising children, knitting, cooking, and standing on her hands.
Deirdre is a member of the Loq Ensemble, has served as director of Fumbally Court Studio and is the primary creator of Capitalism: The Musical. She is interested in provoking political and cultural analysis through her work. She has been the recipient of several Arts Council of Ireland grants, and has shown her work in Ireland, the USA (with the support of Culture Ireland) and Canada.
Our favourite exiled French singer returns with her exciting new project to celebrate the month of La Francophonie organized by the cultural service of the French Embassy in Ireland. Renowed for her majestic, touching and sometimes funny interpretations of the greatest classics of French chanson, Caroline is back with an ambitious and promising project. 'Maudite', sees the poems of Anne de Noailles put to music with the virtuoso guitarist Lucas Gonzalez. Now living in Madrid, Gonzalez collaborated online and will not appear on the stage of The House Presents. 'Maudite', maybe ... 'Désirée' ... Without a doubt!
Doors open at 8:30 pm / €10 at the door
