Just got these great photos from the wonderful Mother Tongues Festival...Thanks guys it was great!

24th Feb2018

To celebrate UNESCO’s International Mother Language Day, Mother Tongues is organising its first multilingual festival.

DURATION: 30 MIN
TIME: 5.30 PM
VENUE: OUTHOUSE, CAPEL ST. DUBLIN1

For the Mother Tongues festival, Sinead Murphy and Darina Gallagher will present Bellsybabble! and explore some of the musical linguistic magic that James Joyce developed throughout his life living in various countries in Europe. His children grew up speaking at least four different languages, Joyce mixes these mother tongues into layers of wordplay that are both comical and poignant.

Darina Gallagher and Sinead Murphy are best known for their award-winning show Songs of Joyce – a musical extravaganza with songs drawn from the life and works of James Joyce.
It has toured internationally to critical acclaim including Boston, New York, Budapest, Prague, San Sebastian and Moscow.

Since 2010, they have created a number of musical performances based on Joyce’s major works – DublinersFinnegans Wake and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Their new show, Misses Liffey, brings us on a river run journey through the city of Dublin introducing us to many of Joyce’s women characters that live, work, sing and laugh along her banks, “a brilliant new Joycean-themed musical” The Irish Times

“Comic joy – with a real sense of joie de vivre.”
Alan Chadwick, Scottish Herald

Following the success of their award winning show 'Songs of Joyce', Darina Gallagher and Sinead Murphy have created a new Joycean musical, Misses Liffey. Through words and music, Anna Livia Plurabelle brings us on a riverrun journey through the city of Dublin introducing us to many of James Joyce’s women characters that live, work, sing and laugh along her banks. We hear from Nuvoletta and the Washerwomen from Finnegans Wake, the Morkan Sisters and Eveline from Dubliners and the Siren barmaids, Dilly Dedalus and the seaside girls in Ulysses. Anna finally bids us farewell as she meets her cold, mad father - the sea, only to fin again, begin again…
