Cillian Murphy in

Misterman Written and Directed by

Enda Walsh Thomas is on a journey. Where did it begin? What voices does he hear? And what will they tell him to do? Cillian Murphy makes his eagerly–awaited return to the stage in a dark, dangerous and blisteringly funny tale of one man and his judgement day. Enda Walsh directs an electrifying new version of his devastating play. The production reunites two major stars for the first time since their collaboration with Walsh’s groundbreaking Disco Pigs fifteen years ago. They are joined by a world–class creative team: the production is designed by Jamie Vartan, with lighting by Adam Silverman and sound design by Gregory Clarke, and features the world premiere of a specially–commissioned score by Donnacha Dennehy.

ENGLAND The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare’s most farcical comedy, and also his smartest. Two sets of estranged twins, separated at birth, find themselves in the same city 25 years later with hilarious consequences. A series of mistaken identities, assumed personas, and wild mishaps bring a family crisis into heart–warming focus. Fortunately the audience is always one step ahead.

ENGLAND

“It could have been politicians or old men, an orchestra or ballet or something old like that but it wasn’t. It was pop music. Young people, like us, dressed up as they want. Things are changing every day at the moment.” June 25, 1967. The night The Beatles sang All You Need Is Love, the first live global TV event, and Kenneth and Sandra know the world is changing. And they want some of it. Olivier Award–winning playwright Mike Bartlett’s ferociously funny new play Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble. Smoking, drinking, ambitious and paranoid, one couple’s forty–year journey from initial burst to full bloom. A head–rush of pure comic catharsis.

Richard III By William Shakespeare Directed by Edward Hall

Richard III brings the War of the Roses cycle of history plays to a close in bloody fashion. Arguably Shakespeare’s most villainous King, we watch in horror and delight as Richard murders his way to the throne, unable to resist his cruel wit and dark humour. One of the greatest political plays, this is a hugely entertaining and diabolical adventure that tells the story of one man’s journey to heaven, then back to hell.

CUBA / MALI Better late than never. In 1996, World Circuit Records conceived a unique encounter in Havana between Mali and Cuba’s best musicians, but the Africans never made it. The recording went ahead without them and the result was the epoch–defining Buena Vista Social Club. Fourteen years later, this 13–piece all–star cast of musicians including African superstar Toumani Diabaté and Buena Vista hero Eliades Ochoa finally got together and recorded. Released last year the album has universally lived up to the high expectations and now this world–class group of musicians comes together for one of the most exciting gigs of the summer. AfroCubism bridges the continents with music that flows, and playing that sparkles in a truly stellar affair. Support from The Bahh Band.

BLONDIE Pop icons Blondie make a welcome return to Galway following one of the most memorable gigs in Festival history in 2008. With a string of worldwide hits including Heart of Glass, Hanging on the Telephone, Call Me, Atomic, Denis Denis, One Way or Another, Maria and Sunday Girl, Blondie created the soundtrack for much of the 70s, 80s and 90s.

“One of the most iconic singers in history.” The Independent

Blondie emerged as one of the great icons of New York’s celebrated late 70’s new wave punk scene and were inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Galway audiences are set for another dazzling Blondie performance at the Festival Big Top. Support from Keywest.

Panellists include Mary Cloake, Director, The Arts Council; Toby Scott, Director of Pentacle Ireland and former Culture Adviser to the British Labour Party; Eugene Downes, Chief Executive Culture Ireland; Susan Feldman, Director St. Ann’s Warehouse New York; Michael JULY D.

Green Part 1 Aideen Barry

AIDEEN BARRY

POSSESSION A new work specially created for Galway Arts Festival 2011. Visual artist Aideen Barry presents a number of drawing vignettes to accompany a new performative film Possession. Barry explores the notion of the contemporary haunted. Possession responds to the notion of being possessed or haunted in some way. Her protagonist is a creature that reflects cognitive dissonance, a housewife who succumbs to a morbid set of circumstances. Trapped in a modern House of Usher, the character responds to her environment, her appliances, her household obligations through absurd gestures that defy reality, and darkly humorous phenomenological reasoning, that plays on our perceptions of the everyday experience of modern living.

CHARLES LAMB

LAMB IN CONNEMARA Many people mistakenly believe that Charles Lamb was from Connemara, because so much of his work is associated with the West of Ireland, when in reality the painter came from Northern Ireland. The Irish writer Pádraic O’Conaire first encouraged Lamb to paint the unspoilt landscape and simple lifestyle of the West of Ireland. This exhibition examines Lamb’s relationship with Connemara, the people and the landscape which provided great subject matter for his paintings.
