StorySketch with live cello music by Claire Fitch - Thursday, 24 June from 8pm
You are invited to listen and draw while Wilson and Oh-Aissieux tell a selection of their best tales and the very talented Claire Fitch demonstrates her unique concept in live, improvised, electric and acoustic cello, in the cosy Victorian sitting room that is the Library Bar Extension.
This is the first time that the Narrative Arts Club will feature live music, and there can be few better ways to advance the club's commitment to innovation in Irish storytelling than to engage with an experimental demonstration of Claire's Ambiencellist sound.
For more info about Claire Fitch and her innovative approach to playing cello with new technologies, please see the Ambiencellist website:
This show will include a performance by The Oh-Aissieux of the first part of the Tibetan epic, Gesar of Ling, in which the dragon princess Dzeden gives birth to the shape-shifting Gesar, who takes part in a horse race to gain the throne of the kingdom of Ling. The show will also feature Scott Anthony Kelly, a performer with a powerful physical command of the stage, who will tell the story of Tuan of the Isles in his inimitable, free and lively style.
