celebration of culture, creativity, and the arts.
ROCKING Film Screening

ROCKING is an interdisciplinary performance-made-for-film
in a creative collaboration between early music and contemporary
dance. This project explores lamentation, love and
loss through a feminist lens and is inspired by the music and
text of Tarquinio Merula’s sacred lullaby “Canzonetta spirituale
sopra alla nanna”, featuring Yonit Kosovske (harpsichord &
artistic direction), Aisling Kenny (soprano), Sarah Groser (viola
da gamba), and Isabella Oberländer (dance & choreography).

Aoife Meade, our MA Music Therapy student, invites you to a night
of song and soul. Sharing her original music with you alongside
some poetry. With just herself and her guitar, she can’t wait
to celebrate culture night with you. Aoife is a singer/songwriter
hailing from Laois but nesting in Limerick. With inspiration
coming from such artists as Tom Waits, Ella Fitzgerald and Lana Del Rey,
she’s a lover of all things nostalgic. She blends jazzy tones with her
love of storytelling. Showcasing a powerful voice, her stripped back set
allows audiences to hear exactly where she’s coming from.
