EARLY 2016 AT TRISKEL ARTS CENTRE
Our cinema takes over the weekend spot for January and February with screening running Friday to Monday night and matinees every Sunday and selected Saturdays. Keep an eye on the programme for some highlights from the Oscar Nomination line-up. We also have special guest Kier-La Janisse, co-editor and author of Satanic Panic: Pop-Cultural Paranoia in the 1980s, makes her first appearance in Ireland to host a lecture on this controversial culture war on the same evening as the screening of Evilspeak Wednesday, 3 February. Jim Henson’s 1986 musical fantasy film Labyrinth will screen to mark the passing of the great David Bowie and revisit his unforgettable performance as the Goblin King.
Two substantial visual art projects take place in the first half of the year. Blind Spots sees Cork artist Aideen Barry take over Triskel Christchurch for the Easter Weekend as part of our centenary programme. The inaugural exhibition at Triskel Project Space The Printer features a short documentary, a photographic gallery of images taken during the making of the film and posters and house artefacts from Field’s Printers, Youghal.
Jazz is high on the agenda this year. We are thrilled to have concerts by Andy Sheppard, Georgie Fame, Phil Ware, Olivia Trummer not to mention the premier of A Shy-going Boy – new work by Ronan Guilfoyle, as part of our centenary programme.
