Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blanche

Performance created by Amanda Coogan at 8pm, admission free

For Nuit Blanche 2014, the CCI has commissioned a new work, Smoking in Bolero, by renowned performance artist Amanda Coogan. Echoing the artist’s work for the Liverpool Biennial 2004, in which she filmed local people head banging to Beethoven, Amanda invites Parisians to dance to Maurice Ravel's iconic “Boléro”. An artistic happening not to be missed, email assistant@centreculturelirlandais.com to take part! Rehearsal 2 October.

Amanda’s exhibition Corpus and our historical exhibition Hospice and Charity are open all night.

 

Screening: Occupy Wall Street, 7pm - 7am, admission free

Drop-in any time to this special night-long screening of six experimental documentaries by our filmmaker-in-residence Donal Foreman. Occupy Wall Street charts the protest movement that began on 17 September 2011 in Zuccotti Park, New York City; the OWS slogan “We are the 99%” refers to income inequality and wealth distribution in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. Foreman’s enquiring images and sound fragments capture the protesters and the authorities alike.
