Lady Windermere's Line-Up

Lady Windermere has been over-joyed and over-bowled by the explosion of creativity and Christmas generosity that is filling her inbox! As well as the coffee, artwork, silent cinema, browsing, chilling and chat that will be on offer every afternoon Wednesday to Sunday til the winter solstice, we also offer the following special attractions (with much more to be announced!):

Thursday 8th December
Lady W will be serving her brews as a special guest at the Libertango Smokin' Club, a night of decaying glamour, passion and heat, of song and dance and dramatic theatrical performance. Doors open 8pm, €10 ticket.

Friday 9th December
Throwing open her doors for her first full salon day at 4pm, Lady W's opening bash features song, dance and madness along with the traditional cuppa, with acts including Fathers of Western Thought.
Oh, and we are delighted to raffle two exclusive tickets to Imelda May's 16th December gig at the O2, as a salute from one Liberties belle to another!
*We invite you to dance on at the Lady W afterparty with the Godfathas of Dublin DJing Billy Scurry and Liam Dollard in the South William.

Saturday 10th December
'Remember This', a night in aid of Alzheimer's research with quirky, soulful Dublin outfit Kellie and the Scruffs and theatrical performance by 'Playback As Soon As You Hear' along with special guests, theatrical surprises and ambient DJs!

Sunday 11th December
A mellow musical Sunday afternoon, featuring hypnotic hang playing, sprightly piano ditties and Latin elegance from Arash Kazemi. Come and chill.

Wednesday 14th December
Slavonic song and cinema night, celebrating Eastern promise. Featuring bilingual Russian and Irish poetry, slavic song, classic silent film screenings (The Colour of Pomegranates, Man with a Movie Camera) and finishing with the grand premiere of a new English subtitling of the madcap and subversive Bulgarian 60s satire of bureaucratic insanity 'Whale'

Thursday 15th December
A dance-themed night of movement, music and mystery, climaxing in AMOON's eclectic mix of bells, bass, bellydancers, darbuka and djembe.

Friday 16th December
Friday is dedicated to the latin fire and the spirit of the Buenos Aires tango! Put on your dancing shoes!

Saturday 17th December
A night of authentically gritty cabaret, 'Midnight in Paris', leads coffee-drinkers on a journey into the underworld with the dark spoken word of Kit Fryatt, the continental clowning of Carlo Jacucci and ends with a bang and a full evening in the company of the one-and-only, sultry and inimitable, rich-girl-gone-wrong Rose Lawless. Bring your bouquets to lay at her feet, dress in the style of the belle epoque and prepare for a heady evening's entertainment.

Sunday 18th December
Christmas Family Cracker. With only 7 days to Christmas, 'tis the season to be jolly (falalalalalala). Bringing the joyful beats of Philosophy of Sound together with games, clowns, jugglers, carol-singing, card-making, piano-playing, offbeat Czech and Russian cartoons, storytelling, mulled wine, mince pies, candy canes - this is an afternoon's delight for all ages. Discreetly slip our resident Christmas fairy a wrapped present (worth €5 or under) with your child's name clearly written on it for a magical surprise. The evening ends with a 7pm screening of the classic Wizard of Oz. We will also be raising funds for children's charity Barnardos.
BYOK (bring your own kids - or somebody else's*).
* Please a
sk permission before bringing other people's children. Lady W does not endorse kidnapping.

Wednesday 21st December
On the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, we say goodbye to Lady W's December salons in style: the legendary DJ Chuckleberry spins his homespun sounds along with special guests,
the gorgeous Apollonia Tribal Dance, fresh from her Vietnam odyssey, will be shaking her moneymaker, our madcap auctioneers will be bringing the hammer down on our fabulous art collection and we wrap up the whole night with a sentimental late-night screening of 'It's a Wonderful Life' (all together: awwwwwwwwwww!)
We will also be raising money for FocusIreland through the night.

With special thanks to the Back Loft and La Catedral Studios, without whose support and sponsorship these evenings would not be possible. Visit Lady Windermere's blog for details.

Moving Backwards. Backwards Moving



Opening on Wednesday 16th November, (6-8pm) 
Daily viewing Thursday 17th to Sunday20th November, 3-6pm til Friday, by appointment only Sat-Sunday (call 0872753944) .

Moving Backwards. Backwards Moving focuses on past movements can be seen in an instant, where it can be recognized and is never to be seen again. To articulate this past does not mean to recognize it the way it really was, it means to seize hold of a memory as it flashes into our consciousness, before it is lost again. Moving Backwards. Backwards Moving intends to reverse this by capturing a memory and preserving it through the manufacture of sculptures based on the movement itself. The sculptures consist mainly of unorthodox materials, in combination with structural materials such as wood and metal. With the amalgamation of all these necessary factors it allows for the opening up of new possibilities for exploring reality and live new fictions through the investigation of body movements and mimesis.


About the artist: Evelyn O' Connor is an emerging artist who recently graduated with a first class honours degree in painting from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2010. She also attended, Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Kunste Karlsruhe for a short period of time in 2009. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, most noted was an exhibition entitled, Ich suche eine WG, which was held last June in Karlsruhe, Germany. She was also shortlisted for the Irish Residential Studio Award at The Red Stables twice and has just completed a bursary which she received from the Contact Studios in Limerick.

Negative Exposure - November 24th - 28th


Negative Exposure
an exploration of the body through fine art nude photography
 
with Photographers
Karol Liver and Douglas Ross
and models
Juchi, Rachel Lally and Spunky Gore


   This November sees the opening of an exciting exhibition and associated events at the Back Loft. From November 23rd through to the 28thNegative Exposure will present the breath-taking and insightful work of two fine art photographers and three art models, who have worked in close collaboration to bring this highly unusual exhibition together.
   The depiction of the human body in art has long been contentious. This exhibition has been put together by five people who have consciously addressed these issues in their work . The diverse ages (23 - 57) and cultural backgrounds (Ireland, U.S., Poland and Italy) have informed the development of the work and issues of gender and sexuality are examined directly in some of the work. Above all this is an exhibition of work involving five people who are passionate about the power and beauty of the human body and its depiction in fine art photography.
   The active participation of the three models is a unique feature of this exhibition. In addition to actively collaborating in the creation of the photographic work, the models have worked creatively with castings of their own bodies and also produced video footage looking at some of the issues around figurative art, modelling and photography.
   As well as the exhibition, the Negative Exposure group are running a fine art photography workshop and a multi-facetted evening which will go into the exhibition in depth and explore the issues it raises.
   Schedule:
                   November 23rd - 28th , Exhibition open 1 - 7pm daily.
                   November 24th, Opening night 6-9pm.
                   November 26th,  All day workshop (view details below!)
           November 28th, Night of discussion, performance, multi-media presentations.

All events are free, except for workshop.

**********************************

ALL DAY WORKSHOP INFORMATION


This full day workshop on fine art nude photography is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “Negative Exposure”. Participants will spend half the workshop with each photographer covering preparation, the working relationship between model and photographer, lighting, the shoot and post-production. Participants will have a shoot with a model as part of each session, i.e. two shoots during the day. Each group will be kept small to ensure in-depth dialogue and a reasonable time to shoot.
Karol Liver and Douglas Ross are two innovative photographers with different styles and working in different ways. Karol Liver has an improvisational approach to developing the content of his work, with meticulous attention to technical execution. By contrast, Douglas Ross prepares his themes intensively before the shoot and then improvises technically. 
Juchi, Rachel Lally and Spunky Gore are three models, each with their own exciting and distinctive style. They have participated actively in the development of the work in “Negative Exposure” and will give participants a rare opportunity to dialogue with them about the model’s perspective, as well as a couple of wonderful opportunities during the workshop to work with them.


Places are strictly limited to allow for the close personal involvement of participants. A deposit of 50 euro will secure your place. Payment through PayPal to dlross@eircom.net.

Indie-Ah! - Saturday 22nd October

   
Fundraiser and Information night in association with United Speech.
https://www.facebook.com/unitedspeech

United Speech is an emerging non profit organisation linking teachers/students/travel-goers here in Ireland with schools that desperately seek language teachers in South India.. The idea sprung from seeing/experiencing organisations that profit hugely from package sort of volunteer holiday trips - the organisation charge a fee etc, the school receive little money from this fee and the volunteers are working for free regardless. So I thought it would be cool to create a medium where people interested in teaching abroad can get direct contact with schools, and not have to worry about extra costs besides their own personal travel expenses.



This event is basically a chance to call out to people who want to take part in something different and worthwhile and to share ideas etc for future events/promotion and maybe join an exciting different sort of collective. We have some great entertainment for the night so good times will be surely had!

Line Up..

**CFIT**

Tryst - 1st November 2011

TRYST
Where tradition meets innovation
in adventurous vocal music


Tryst presents: Songs of Myself
Tuesday 1st November 2011, 8pm
Tickets: €12/€10 (conc.) available at door

Vocal duo Tryst brings an intense and compelling energy to a richly varied vocal repertoire, ranging from Léonin to John Cage. Following two successful shows in New York as part of Culture Irelands Imagine Ireland initiative, Tryst return to Dublin to perform at one of the city’s quintessential venues – The Back Loft.

Drawing inspiration from jazz, contemporary, classical, cabaret and folk performance cultures, Michelle O'Rourke and Nora Ryan explore and interpret vocal repertoire. This eclectic approach, combined with the singers’ rare chemistry, throws music from the canon into a new, idiosyncratic, unique and beautiful light. Renowned British tenor John Potter (Hilliard Ensemble, Red Byrd) has described the synergy between O’Rourke and Ryan as “a magical unison”.

Featuring a captivating mix of arranged and improvised music, Tryst performs a seamless show that re-imagines, re-invents and re-defines conceptions of the singer’s role as interpreter. Medieval organa and rondeau are reduced to their beautiful essence, rapid-fire Aperghis Récitations are spliced into luxuriant Poulenc chansons, American art song is placed in the dark atmosphere of Tom Waits, solos by John Cage are lent a new, subtle theatre, and Kurt Weill torch song becomes haunting two-part counterpoint.

O’Rourke and Ryan perform with regular collaborators: composer-drummer Dennis Cassidy, bassist Sean Maynard Smith and English composer-pianist Jonathan Brigg. For this show at the Back Loft, special guest Adrian Hart (Yurodny, I draw slow) will join them on violin. The programme will include music by John Cage, Kurt Weill, Tom Waits, Richard Hundley, Guillaume de Machaut and Jonathan Brigg. This performance will also feature the Irish premiere of new work Mad Sweet Pangs through my Belly & Breast by Irish composer Judith Ring. Michelle O’Rourke commissioned this work for Tryst with funds from the Irish Arts Council: the work was premiered in New York this September.

Tuesday
