Exhibition - Land, Sea and Sky by Isabelle Gaborit
Birr Theatre & Arts Centre
On show Feb & Mar 2018
Info: Isabelle is a contemporary artist, though her preferred medium of encaustic is ancient. In her studio located on the scenic shores of Lough Derg, County Clare, she has rekindled the ancient painting process of encaustics, an immediate and tactile painting method using molten pigmented beeswax. Her creative process involves the application of semi-transparent layers of wax, paint, and pigment, striving to create depth and translucency without compromising the spirit of the medium or subject matter. In this recent body of work, Isabelle has been compelled to explore the primal theme of light embedded in her connection to the ever-changing Irish landscape

Thurs 22 Mar @ 10:30am & 11am
Info: Following on from the worldwide success of Michael Morpurgo’s best selling book, film and stage play War Horse, Simon Reade adapts and directs a stage version of Morpurgo’s award-winning book, Private Peaceful. Private Peaceful is a timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices that were made by those involved in World War 1. The story charts the life of a young soldier, Tommo Peaceful, a private played by Shane O’Regan, in this new Irish production of the play, who faces the firing squad for cowardice. The play highlights the dreadful horrors of war while celebrating the joyfulness of life, both which are clearly bound together in this not-to-missed, magnificent one-man theatre production.
