NameLESS justyna

Theatre piece NAMELES Limerick

Theatre piece NAMELESS is a statement about the possibility of crossing the boundaries of understanding and comprehending the essence of participating in the ritual of life. The power of Shakespeare’s word is interrupted by a simple and painful commandment to adapt to the conditions here and now. Despite the efforts, the spell disappears and helplessness remains.
Nameless is kept in a mental health institution without her consent. She needs to obey the painful rules and try to adapt, fit it. Through the female characters from Shakespeare’s plays she is able to go through everything that she emotionally experienced in her life, from naive Juliet, through deceived Desdemona, to poor Ophelia, finally turning into the queen of elves Titania. Only then she is free. Only then she is allowed to be herself. Will she find the way out? Will she be released? Find out yourself on 29th September only at Belltable.

poetry night limerick

Polish Poetry Night

„Poezja jest światem przeżyć i refleksji. Jest po trochu jak mówienie ludzkim językiem w dobie maszyn i komputerów. Nie może jednak być zbyt mądra, bo nikt jej nie zrozumie” – Ks. Jan Twardowski

Tymi słowami pragniemy zaprosić Cię na wieczór poezji i muzyki. Poezji niezbyt mądrej, niezbyt górnolotnej tylko takiej, która nam w duszy gra i którą chcesz się z nami podzielić.

Nie zabraknie i śpiewu, tego pięknego, jednoczącego wehikułu.

Zabierz swój wiersz, podziel się nim z nami, przeczytaj swój ulubiony, zaśpiewaj co Ci w duszy gra… to wieczór dla Ciebie!

Wieczór współorganizowany z Klubem Poetyckim prowadzonym przez Monika Barabasz.

THIS EVENT IS IN POLISH LANGUAGE

Place: Narrative 4 58 O’Connell Street, Limerick

Dear Friends,
as you know our beloved sister Izabela Maria Młynarz, beautiful Angel with buckets of talent, has passed away this year. It was too quick a departure…..
She left a lot of souls mourning after her loss.
Iza was a great friend and supporter of Polish Arts Festival – PAF – Festiwal Sztuki Polskiej w Limerick . We remember the times when she performed with us and shared her voice and sensitivity.
We have decided together with Avia Gurman to host a Memorial for Iza, to create a space where we can share songs, poems, music and memories connected with Iza.
You are all more than welcome to join us and connect with Iza on Friday, 28th September at 6pm in Contemplative Centre at University of Limerick.
If you wish to share a song, poem, music please contact Avia Gurman.
Iza’s parents will join us from Poland to share these moments together.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
