Béal Festival

An exciting-sounding new company, Béal stages its first festival over two days this week (Wednesday 3 - Thursday 4 November 2010) in venues around Dublin. Through four events promising to combine work from the fields of art, music and poetry, twelve musical pieces - nine of which were specially written - will be accompanied by readings from poets.

The participating poets are Billy Mills, Maurice Scully, Katherine Walsh and Emily Crossland. The full programme also includes renderings of John Ashbery's 'The System' (with improvised electronic music) and Gerard Manley Hopkins' 'Repeat That, Repeat'.
