'Venn Diagram: A Love Story" with Riona Hartman and Banbha McCann Thursday 9th of April @ The Back Loft.
Doors Open at 830pm. Admission 10€ / 5€ student concession & complimentary drink (limited to those who arrive early)

'Venn Diagram: A Love Story' is a collaboration between Riona Hartman and Banbha McCann a visual artist and practicing architect. Following three years of studying architecture in UCD both Riona and Banbha decided to pursue their respective beloveds: music and art. On April 9th in the Back Loft they will mutually pursue them; Riona will be singing her own original tunes with a band while Banbha presents a selection of her films. Some of these works will be married, some will have a tentative open relationship with each other and some will be completely independent of one another. The idea for the event came about because Riona and Banbha noticed some overlap in their work, which is hardly surprising considering their shared experiences (they grew up together, went to the same schools, studied in college together). Banbha's short 'Crossing the Water (highly commended at the Fresh Film Festival) based on the Sylvia Plath poem of the same name, approaches the theme of suicide in much the same way as my own song Kamikaze. They both split it the process into the calm, dignified intellectual aspect and the turbulent, doubtful emotional result.

The band on the night will be of Sam Kavangh on saxaphone and backing vocals, Dan OCallaghan on double bass, Lucie OFlynn on violin and backing vocals and Steven McNamara on guitar.
