A celebration of the life and work of Gabriel Rosenstock at 70.

About this Event

Síneann réimsí spéise Rosenstock thall is abhus, soir is siar, mar bhraiteoga an ochtapais: filíocht is mó atá tagtha óna pheann, chomh maith le rainn don aos óg, haiku, tanka, úrscéalta, drámaí, aistí, aistriúcháin, gearrscéalta agus ábhar aisteach dá bhlag, in eagar ag Aonghus Ó hAlmhain. Níl a fhios aige féin líon na leabhar atá curtha amach aige ach deir sé, ‘Caithfidh go bhfuil ábhar leathdhosaen leabhar eile sa bhlag féin, nó mura bhfuil, beidh!’ Is iad na leabhair is déanaí uaidh Glengower: Poems for No One in Irish and English (The Onslaught Press) agus An Eala Órga agus scéalta eile ón India (An Gúm).

I measc na n-aíonna anocht beidh na filí Paddy Bushe, Caitríona Ní Chléirchín, Cathal Ó Searcaigh agus Séamas Barra Ó Súilleabháin; an t-aisteoir Donncha Crowley; na húdair Gary Bannister agus Alan Titley; giotáraí Barócach Arash Kazemi; amhránaí Hilary Bow le Bláthnaid Conroy Murphy ar an bpianó; agus an fear grinn Mario Rosenstock. Bean an tí: Sinéad Ní Uallacháin.

Of Gabriel Rosenstock, poet Gwyneth Lewis once commented: ‘he defies gravitational laws, leaping out of the confines of the Irish language through the vigour of his writing and its total disregard of time and space’. A poet, novelist, children’s author, playwright, haikuist, essayist, critic and translator, he has published over 180 books since the publication of Susanne sa seomra folctha in 1973. His work is that of a shape-changer poet – often tender and lyrical, sometimes marked by a madcap humour that reveals deadly serious moral concerns.

Tonight IMRAM celebrates his life and work with a gala performance featuring poets Paddy Bushe, , Cathal Ó Searcaigh, and Séamus Barra Ó Súilleabháin; actor Donncha Crowley; and authors Gary Bannister and Alan Titley ; Baroque guitarist Arash; singer Hilary Bow with pianist Bláthnaid Conroy Murphy; and comedian Mario Rosenstock. MC for the night is Sinéad Ní Uallacháin.
