EPILOGUE - Flax Art Studios Belfast International Arts Festival EPILOGUE, a filmed dance work by Maiden Voyage Dance that premiered this week in the Belfast International Arts Festival, is a superb account of what it really means to be an artist.
ARRACHT (15, 89mins) Drama, thriller Starring: Dónall Ó Héalaí, Saise Ní Chuinn, Dara Devaney, Conal Ó Céidigh, Seán T Ó Meallaigh, Siobhán O'Kelly, Elaine O'Dwyer, Michael McElhatton, Peter Coonan Director: Tomás Ó Súilleabháin Rating: 3stars A COUPLE of years ago, Lance Daly's excellent Black 47 grappled with the stark brutality and suffering of the Great Famine in the form of a gripping as Gaeilge Western set in its apocalyptic aftermath: now, Tomás Ó Súilleabháin's Irish-language drama Arracht is a smaller scale but no less compelling tale of one man's world torn apart by Britain's calamitous colonial cruelty.
Review: Distortion at The MAC WHILE the reliably dysfunctional world of Northern Ireland politics is often beyond parody, its amusingly Machiavellian murk certainly makes fertile fodder for good old fashioned satire.
GRANDE dame of Northern Ireland dance, Jane Mooney, still stands on one leg to brush her teeth every morning, but now, at the age of 67, she is ready to bring her bare-footed balancing skills back to the stage again.
