An Evening of Readings, Music& Dance Celebrating Limerick's Leading Writers & Activists of the past 40 years.
Booking is essential www.rebellyell.eventbrite.ie
Limerick has a history of political activism and trade unionism. A leader amongst those who spoke truth to power in Limerick was Maeve Kelly, writer and author of the ground breaking Orange Horses, the Bealtaine Book 2017. Like many others, Maeve combined her life as a writer with her activism, founding ADAPT in Limerick which she championed and led for over 20 years. 2016 saw the re-publication of Orange Horses by Tramp Press, and the poignant anthology, A Last Loving by Arlen House. Hosted by Susan Mackay, Rebel Yell will feature readings and performances of Maeve's work, as well as the first performance of new Bealtaine Commissions. These commissions comprise The Movement, by Bealtaine Dance Artist in Residence Mary Nunan, and The Beauty of It, a series of four new choral compositions by Sean Doherty working with poet Paula Meehan. The Beauty of It will be performed by Limerick's acclaimed choirs Cantette, Seoda and Limerick Chamber Choir, directed by Maire Keary Scanlon. Finally, this event will also feature readings from our newly commissioned writers Ron Carey and Fergus Cronic and a vocal performance by Ceara Conway.
