Atoosa Pour Hosseini is collaborating with Mick O’Shea  a audio/video performance tomorrow (20th April) at the Guesthouse, 6pm.”Latitude is a one-off audio-visual performance by The Guesthouse’s current artist in residence, Atoosa Pour Hosseini, and sound artist Mick O’Shea. Pour Hosseini works with the notion of drawing and how it can be used in the moving image. She will present a multimedia experience involving multiple, often superimposed projections of her videos and also incorporating hand-made filters and other objects. O’Shea’s sound will respond to this, creating a dialogue between the two performers based on improvisational impulses.”

Devised, written & performed by Sorcha Fox
Who is Manorhamilton? Over the last year, as Glens Theatre Artist in Residence, Sorcha Fox has been exploring this question. Working with filmmaker Róisín Loughrey, composer and musician Dee Armstrong, and young filmmakers Megan and Emma Devaney, an innovative theatre piece has been developed that looks at Manorhamilton and the many identities it contains. Responding to input from the community and her own interest in Manorhamilton’s diversity, Sorcha has put together a piece of theatre celebrating the place we live in the spirit of challenge. Come and see if there is a Manorhamilton you recognise.
