'Charolais' at Townhall

Described by the Irish Times as “a comedic performance that jumps between a resentful, distressed woman and an overtly sexual French cow,” Noni Stapleton’s ‘Charolais’ is an age old tale of female rivalry with a new twist: the other woman is a cow - literally - a purebred Charolais heifer. 


Written and performed by Stapleton, this award-winning show comes to Townhall Cavan on Saturday, 20th February at 8pm.

Visual and Performance Art collaboration

A Tribute to the Irish Community Butte Montana 1916-1919 is a true story kept alive through oral history. The story is brought to us by visual artist Amanda Jane Graham in collaboration with choreographer Mary Farrelly and musician Martin Donohoe. Amanda narrates a personal and deeply moving story about her grandmother Mary Timmins. This story takes place at a time in Irish history when migration and poverty shaped our nation.

This collaborative art work from the artists Amanda Jane Graham, Martin Donohoe and Mary Farrelly has developed from the work of the Cavan Curators, Annette Moloney and Maeve Mulrennan.   The Cavan Curators worked in the county with artists to support their development during 2015.   Their work included: one to one meetings, mentoring and artist exchange sessions. 

This visual art and performance collaboration takes place at Townhall Cavan on Sunday 6 March at 5pm
