Pavilion Theatre in association with IMRAM Féile Litríochta Gaeilge presents

CONLÁN | GLEANING: The Poetry of Seamus Heaney in Irish

as part of Pavilion21


In 1989, Seamus Heaney gave permission to Gabriel Rosenstock to translate the best of his early work into Irish. CONLÁN draws on the book of the same title, with poems from collections such as Death of a Naturalist, Door into the Dark, Field Work and Station Island. Here Heaney’s themes of family, nature, history and myth come brilliantly to life in modern Irish.

In this multimedia performance, the poems are read by acclaimed actor Stephen Rea to live musical settings by cellist and composer Neil Martin and screen projections by Margaret Lonergan.

Since 2004, IMRAM’s core mission has been to bring writers and readers – and particularly new readers – together. Its message is positive, and places the Irish language and its literature at the heart of public life within a modern, energetic and multicultural framework.
