Solstice Arts Centre - Auditorium: Film screening - Henry Glassie: Field Work


Offline
Over the last 50 years the celebrated American Folklorist Henry Glassie has been writing in-depth studies of communities and their art. Inspired by the writings and ideas of Glassie – ‘Field Work’ is an immersive and meditative documentary set among the rituals and rhythms of working artists across Brazil, Turkey, North Carolina and Ireland. The process of making something out of raw materials is luminously manifested in sequences which reflect in their measured and attentive approach the actual real time process of making, of the work of hands and of the close attention the artist is bringing to the work. More details.

Solstice Arts Centre: OutWall


Offline
20 minute outdoor performance followed by a wine and cheese reception and informal meet and greet with Selma Daniel (Creator).
OutWall is an outdoor dance theatre performance that investigates the challenges of being inside the walls during lockdown and re-exploring our new freedom outside, through architecture and dance.
“We live surrounded by physical and invisible walls, so many walls that rose throughout human history, political walls, social walls, emotional walls.. We are protected and divided by these walls. These solid structures that still rise between us. China walls, Ireland’s Medieval castle walls, the poetic ‘The Wall’ of Pink Floyd to the wall that I create for you, there is one wall that we all have been experiencing since March 2020, the pandemic wall… the walls of our homes, the wall of social distance and the walls of divided nations. Reflecting upon human survival and the skills needed to become a dominant species, I wonder how we can narrow these gaps.” – Selma Daniel
Presented by Meath County Council Arts Office under the Local Live Performance Scheme in association with Solstice Arts Centre. More details.
