January January to April 2014 at Riverbank Arts Centre Welcome all. It’s a New Year, and a new season packed with events that await you at Riverbank Arts Centre. Through the months of January to April, join us for entertaining evenings and afternoons with shows to suit all ages and interests… January sets the tone for music lovers young and old. For all the family, The Speks will have everyone singing and clapping along to lively nursery rhymes while later in April, we team up with The Ark, A Cultural Centre for Children, to bring Moya Brennan and Cormac De Barra’s magical musical journey titled Ten 14. Meanwhile, Quebec Folk band De Temps Antan travel over to Ireland with their explosive tunes, Music Network bring us a very special line-up with musicians Dirk Powell, Michael McGoldrick, and Francis Gaffney and Brendan Gleeson (who can also add accomplished fiddle player to his outstanding list of acting credentials), Jerry Fish exceeds all expectations with a blend of music and theatrics in his Electric Sideshow while Eddi Reader, Heidi Talbot and Freddie White see us through to Spring. In terms of comedy, you won’t be short of a laugh this season as David O’Doherty, Neil Delamere, Andrew Maxwell, and The Nualas work to keep our funny bones in operation. Also, take this opportunity to see comedienne Katherine Lynch as never before with her music project ‘Songs from Settling Dust’. Theatre goers amongst you should be out in force this season with much to delve into. Mikel Murfi’s beautiful Man in the Woman’s Shoes, comedy thriller Chancers suggests there’s more than one way to win the lotto while Strollers Touring Network and Fishamble: the New Play Company, bring us a thriller of another kind with Donal O’Kelly’s new play Little Thing, Big Thing…just a flavour of the great shows that lie ahead. As usual, we love the little ones here and this season offers plenty of treats for both school and family audiences. We’ve partnered with The Abbey Theatre to present schools with a wonderful opportunity to connect with the classics of Irish Theatre, beginning with Me Mollser in February. We’re thrilled to present Theatre Lovett’s brand new exciting show Mr Foley Radio Operator – a must see for all, while book lovers will delight with visits from illustrator Chris Haughton in March and the ‘Master of Horror’ Darren Shan in April. All this, together with an exciting cinema programme (watch out for a very special screening in association with Jameson International Dublin Film Festival), a number of creative and inspiring visual arts exhibitions and workshops, we look forward to seeing you over the coming few months.

Cate Blanchett is outstanding as Jasmine, a down-and-out New York socialite who, left destitute by her cheating husband (Baldwin)’s financial misdemeanours, moves in with her adopted sister (Hawkins) and her blue-collar boyfriend in San Francisco. Oscillating between cool, razor-tongued haughtiness and agitated pill-popping anxiety, Blanchett is a neurotic heroine par excellence, while Hawkins is quietly wonderful as her long-suffering sibling. Typically polished dialogue and serrating humour insure this will go down as a favourite in the Allen canon.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver Nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture, Silver Linings Playbook has been praised as the film that finally saw Hollywood understand mental ill health. Bradley Cooper stars as Pat, a man struggling to cope with daily life following his release from a psychiatric facility. He meets a troubled young widow, Tiffany, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and the film documents their developing relationship. Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver co-star in an incredibly moving film that sheds light on bipolar disorder. Winner - Best Actress, Jennifer Lawrence, Academy Awards 2013 A post-show discussion will follow the screening and the topic up for discussion is, ‘How has film shaped your attitude to mental health?’ If Silver Linings Playbook was the film that got mental ill health right, than what has been the effect of all those that got it wrong?

The serendipitous meeting of Dirk Powell and Brendan Gleeson on the set of the Oscar-winning movie Cold Mountain was one of these occasions, and what began as a shared experience of having music passed down from their grandfathers has grown into an exploration of American Old Time, Cajun and Irish traditional music. While Dirk Powell’s playing is deeply rooted in his Appalachian heritage, he’s played alongside artists as diverse as Emmylou Harris, Jack White, Joan Baez and Steve Earle in addition to working on soundtracks with many of today’s greatest film directors. Brendan Gleeson needs no introduction to Irish audiences, although it’s less well known that he’s a highly-accomplished fiddle player. "Dirk Powell is the greatest old-time banjo player alive… an artist of unique vision and unbending integrity." Steve Earle "Unconfined and adventurous... legendary." BBC Music on Michael McGoldrick

Quebec Folk Band

It is more than three years since their last recording, and with a terrific new release from Quebecois livewires, De Temps Antan, there’s an air of excited anticipation as they prepare for this rare visit to these shores. Live, they have been thrilling audiences with a dynamic delivery of classic tunes and songs, as well as original compositions, thanks to the infectious nature of the music, their boundless energy and unmistakable joie de vivre. This hugely-impressive multiinstrumentalist group is firmly established as The Big Three of Quebecois traditional music. After touring across the United States in October, the band remained on the road until December before flying across the Atlantic for a string of appearances across Europe, including a headline show at Glasgow’s big Celtic Connections Festival. A rare opportunity to see this fantastic band, one you won’t want to miss. “Explosive” – fRoots magazine “Expect to dance and have a lot of fun” – Songlines magazine “Real classy – a delight!” – R2 (Rock ‘n’ Reel magazine)

There’s a tendency for the word ‘unique’ to be bandied around a little too freely in music circles, but that is the only way to describe Jerry Fish’s genre bending style. A highly charismatic performer who refuses to countenance audiences having anything but a good time. Jerry’s live shows have been known to transform sedate tux ‘n’ frock audiences into Roman galley slaves rowing their way through ‘The Hole In the Boat’, or ballroom-of-romancers slow-dancing to ‘Back To Before’, or swampy block parties gyrating to bacchanalian classics like ‘Celebrate’. His music has been described as “Lounge Lizard Schmooze” and “Punk Latino” and his latest single 'Barefoot $ Free' has been compared to The Cramps, The Stooges and John Spencer Blues Explosion. Now in cahoots with drummer Jeremy Hickey aka RSAG with a new sound and music collective Jerry Fish's distinct love of circus, carnival and street theatre has bore fruit in the shape of The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow. The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow was launched at this years Electric Picnic 2013 and was deemed by many to be the highlight of the festival. Now Jerry is taking his Electric Sideshow on the road... So if you are looking for entertainment and something completely different. Don't you dare miss this show!

Hassett does this through the use of various artistic mediums such as installation, performance, sound and video.

Time mcKenna gallery children's gallery 10am - 5.30pm mOn - Fri, 10am - 1pm saT price Free admissiOn

Hassett uses many opposing devices in her practice to create tension in the installations that she creates. She draws inspiration from the bodies potential to be simultaneously repulsive and fascinating, grotesque and sublime. In Somatic reassemble, an installation, created by Hassett for the Riverbank Gallery, various sculptural elements based on the abject body and its systems are presented. In the inter-connectivity of the various sculptural elements and groupings the artist proposes that, in imagining a reassembly of the real or imagined body parts, there is the potential to create something new and outside the constraints imposed on the body by society.

ThE pROcEss ROOM dEsIGNEd By OlIvIA hAssETT The process room in Riverbank Children's Gallery has been designed by artist Olivia Hassett to display some of the processes, materials and objects that were involved in developing work for Somatic reassemblage, her exhibition, which is running in the main gallery. The process room exhibition in the Children's gallery will highlight some of the types of materials, objects and colour combinations that Hassett used to create her sculptures. As photography is an important tool that Hassett uses , various different groups of photographs will be displayed. These will include closeup, investigative photographs showing how the artist is interested in abstracting or making an image unrecognisable from the original object leading the viewer to wonder what they are looking at. Also included in the exhibition are photographs of the artist performing with a selection of materials, objects and sculptures that appear in her exhibitions. A focus of this exhibition will be the display of how one particular sculpture was developed through many different stages into a final piece in the Somatic reassemblage installation. The process room will also include a section dedicated to the art and science of process, an ongoing project between artist Olivia Hassett and Engineer Professor David Taylor of Trinity College Dublin. Families are welcome to view both spaces on their visit.

Winner - Audience Award, Berlin Film Festival 2013

Didier and Elise’s relationship is stormy and passionate; it’s love at first sight. Didier plays the banjo in a bluegrass band, lives in a caravan in the Belgian countryside and idolizes America as the ‘land of the free’. Elise owns her own tattoo parlour. Her body is plastered with images – little mementos of past lovers whose names have been carefully covered up by new tattoos. Before long their two lives are closely intertwined. Elise sings in Didier’s band and they soon have a daughter together, little Maybelle, with whom they move into a lovingly if unconventionally restored country house. This film accompanies Elise and Didier on their rollercoaster ride through life; through days filled with their love of music and their mutual passion.

It’s October 1978. Pope John Paul the First is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town. The Man in The Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks the 5 miles from his wee white cottage, to town and back again and the marvels that he meets along the way. "Today is beginning to feel very special and I've no idea why". It’s a charming encounter - an ageing man still with a boundless enthusiasm for life. Hilariously funny, tender and at times downright daft, The Man in The Woman’s Shoes, will leave you uplifted and in love with life again. "I think none of us is old, me heart has never been old ..." The show was written by and stars Mikel Murfi. The Man In The Woman's Shoes was developed with Sligo County Council Arts Service and The Hawk's Well Theatre, Sligo as part of Bealtaine 2012.

Dir: David Bowers / USA / 2009 / 94 mins / Cert: PG With voices of Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Samuel L Jackson and Bill Nighy Language: English The robot boy from Metro City gets a CGI makeover in this updating of the anime classic. In Metro City, scientist Dr Tenma, an expert in the field of robot technology, creates a robot using advanced 'blue energy' and with the most incredible abilities ever imagined. His creation is produced with x-ray vision, super speed and strength, along with the power to fly. He makes it in the likeness of his late son and thus, Astro Boy is born. A long journey lies ahead of him; on the one hand he must face up to being different from the other children he meets and, on the other, he has many enemies who stand in the way of Metro City's survival and continued prosperity. After first hitting our screens in 1960, Japan's anime hero The Mighty Atom gets the full CGI makeover and, while firmly geared towards a younger audience, Astro Boy has more than enough going for it to fulfil the retro-geek hiding inside us all. - Justin Johnson / BFI London Film Festival â‚Ź3 Coffee & CAke DeAl

CHANCERS, which can truly be called a play for today, takes us to the heart of the recession and its ruinous impact on the lives of three people who had blossomed in the glow of the Celtic Tiger, yet are now facing financial collapse. But, opportunity suddenly knocks and redemption seems to be suddenly within reach, as a real but risky chance to save them from disaster presents itself. Aiden has a liquidity situation on his hands. He's had to rent out his home to some rough shower from Dublin and move the family into his nearly bankrupt convenience store. His wife Dee is out at a job interview this morning which is not going well for her to say the least. Neither of them thought it would ever come to this but salvation may have just arrived in the form of local battleaxe Gertie Graham. She has their ticket out of the poorhouse. They just need to get their hands on it without Gertie knowing.

More than anything in the world, she longs for her 34-year-old son Barbu (Bogdan Dumitrache) to reciprocate her affections. But the pair barely speaks, something the domineering Cornelia blames on Barbu's live-in girlfriend. When Barbu is involved in a tragic car accident and runs down a child on a highway, Cornelia is thrust back into his life. Seeing her chance to regain control, she commences a frighteningly well-orchestrated campaign to save her son from prison. But Barbu, boiling with anger yet hopelessly emasculated and infantilised, refuses to play along. Winner - Golden Bear, Berlin Film Festival 2013

From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings joyous life to all forms of song. Her taste in co-writers, writers, songs and players is impeccable and anything with her name on it is a guaranteed musical treasure. Eddi Reader was brought into the limelight with Fairground Attraction and their single ‘Perfect’ and parent album First of a Million Kisses which both topped the British charts. However, it has been her subsequent solo albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddie brings joyous life to all forms of song and what sets Reader apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance; her ability not only to move the listener but to connect her experience to that of her audience. Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a unique and powerful figure in contemporary British music. She has effortlessly developed into one of popular mu sic’s most thrilling and affecting performers. Eddi’s new album, Vagabond, is due to be released on 3 February 2014, featuring her own songs along with songs by Boo Hewerdine, Declan O’Rourke and others. Don’t miss Heidi Talbot on Saturday, April 5th – she has supported Eddi Reader in the past.

Dir: Abdellatif Kechiche France 2013 / 179 mins / Cert: 18 Starring: Léa Seydoux, Adèle Exarchopoulos / Language: French This year’s Palme d’Or winner is a strikingly uninhibited exploration of the messy, mesmerising and turbulent nature of love. Director Abdellatif Kechiche has an expansive approach to storytelling, all the better to get under his characters’ skins and into their social reality. His latest spans several years in the life of Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos). We first meet her as a school student, tentatively getting together with a male admirer but increasingly fascinated by Emma (Léa Seydoux), a woman with blue-dyed hair that she glimpses in the street. Before long they are an item, Adèle becoming the muse for Emma’s art while she pursues her own path into adulthood. The film’s compelling grip is partly down to Kechiche’s eye as a social observer, partly because of its two lead actors. Seydoux depicts Emma with genial wit and toughness, while Exarchopoulos is a revelation, offering a fearless, deeply affecting performance of remarkable intensity. "A film that truly catches the messy, mesmerising turbulence of life and love." Jonathan Romney, BFI London Film Festival programme

Kildare Youth Theatre present two brand new plays as part of the National Theatre (UK) Connections project, especially for teenagers by two of Britain’s most inventive new writers. Hearts by Luke Norris is about football, set in the changing rooms of a local, unimpressive, football team. It explores the tensions and rivalries of the team, and of the girls who support them. The play is about perseverance, struggle and hope – a sharply observed comedy appealing to anyone who has ever struggled to get a football team off the ground. Same by Deborah Bruce is set in a nursing home for the elderly. It has a set of characters in their 80s and some in their mid-teens. It looks at the similarities between the two groups and how, ultimately, we are all the same. It also deals with family, death and loss in a touching, real and humorous way.

From award-winning illustrator Chris Haughton, one of the most exciting new voices in children's literature, comes a brand new picture book about a beautiful bird, an unquenchable desire and plans gone awry... Four friends, three big and one little, are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it – a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply MUST have it and – SHH! – they have a PLAN. So they tip-toe, tip-toe very slowly, nets poised – "Ready one ... ready two ... ready three ... GO!" But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away. One hilarious foiled plan after another and it's clear that this goofy trio CANNOT catch that elusive birdie! Join us today to meet Chris as he reads some of the adventures from the new book and teaches the kids to draw each of the characters from ‘Ssh! We Have a Plan. You may even be lucky enough to meet some of the characters!

8pm 115/112

In the name Stephen Dedalus, he adopted in this, his early masterpiece, Joyce signalled his need to escape the nets he claimed Ireland would trap him in – religion and nationality. He would seek to fly “above these nets”. Unique among his contemporaries he laid claim for the artist’s freedom from such temporal concerns to “forge the uncreated conscience of his race”. Thus began his lifelong task of sketching the universal human condition he had observed around him in Dublin in the real lives of ordinary people. In the course of A Portrait which covered the first decades of his life, we see him creating his own individual aesthetic, as opposed to the dictates of the Church. He is already aware of the beginnings of new European writers such as Ibsen, and leaves Ireland to live mostly in poverty, but at liberty to seek nourishment from other cultures. The novel eventually published in 1916, contains some of the most dramatic scenes in modern literature.

But the sweltering capital’s bustling intensity quickly overwhelms them, and they fall prey to the rampant manipulations of its hardened locals. Oscar catches a lucky break when he’s offered steady work for an armored truck company and gregarious senior officer Ong takes him under his wing. Soon, though, the reality of his work’s mortality rate and the murky motives of his new partner force Oscar to confront the perils he faces in his new job and life. Director Sean Ellis’s return (The Broken premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival) vividly captures the desperation of life amongst the squalid Manila slums, then ratchets up the tension, creating an intense thriller with a poignant humanity and palpable dramatic stakes.

A poignant and humorous account of a woman turned detective on a mission to reveal the truth. ‘From a very early age I was told I was adopted. In fairness I think my parents had no choice but to tell me, what with me being redheaded with pale skin in a family with dark skin and dark hair – this made it pretty obvious that something wasn’t right. While I loved being able to say I was adopted when I was a child (because it made me feel exotic), I also learned that it was a word that was used by adults with a dropped voice. ‘Bad blood will out’ was a phrase that was often thrown around in conversation in relation to adopted children in 70’s and 80’s Ireland.’ Based on a true story of an adopted person’s search for identity. “A gentle, sad, funny delight”.
