Carol O’Connor: Where I Walk
Where: Café Wall | For all ages
Join us for the opening reception of local artist Carol O’Connor’s solo exhibition Where I Walk in Solstice Café.
Quiet Music Ensemble
Where: Auditorium | For all ages
“Music as microclimate, in a constant state of becoming, floating around the edges of form, occasionally on the threshold of audition, shifting subtly, flowering, wilting, swelling, ebbing. All performed with consummate grace and sensitivity.” - Fergus Kelly, composer
QME will perform two works: one by Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri and Andrew Crossley, and one by Cork dancer Inma Pavon. Involving visual arts, dance and QME’s extraordinarily captivating improvised soundscapes, this will be an unusual and profound experience.
Lucy McKenna: Cosmic Connector
Where: Solstice Arts Centre | For all ages
A piece by artist Lucy McKenna, titled Cosmic Connector, will be projected on to the outside of Solstice Arts Centre.
