Adjacent to the Linenhall’s Culture Night extravaganza tomorrow night is an engrossing movie, an energetic evening of jazz and an eclectic stage.

The Linenhall’s ever-popular Film Club returns on Tuesday, September 27, with ‘Olga’, which follows a talented 15-year-old gymnast with a bright future that might take her all the way to the Olympics.

A long-running jazz ensemble, ‘Dirty Jazz Club’, six stalwarts of the Irish jazz scene for over 25 years, will invigorate concertgoers with their recent recordings on September 28, ahead of their latest album release. Playing a vibrant mix of jazz gems, from early 20th century to present-day tunes, Conor Murray (Drums), Derek Whyte (bass), Darragh O’Kelly (keys), Cathal Roche (alto saxophone), Colm O’Hara (trombone) and Bill Blackmore (trumpet) are excited to visit Castlebar and to showcase their new inventory.

Embodying a mutant physicality, simultaneously brutish, sensual, ridiculous, and vulnerable, ‘Soup’ see-saws between hilarious and harrowing as it reaches for a shared state of catharsis with Linenhall audiences on September 29. Created, choreographed and performed by Deirdre Griffin in collaboration with sound designer Craig Cox.

Deirdre explains: “Soup is a kinetic shrine to my mother and an absurd meditation on the process of grief. It exists inside a fey mirror world built out of vegetables, polystyrene heads, the kitchen table and inhabited by a sinuous doppelgänger.”

Her accolades include a nomination for the Best Performer, Radical Spirit Award at Dublin Fringe Festival 2019.
