The Irish World Academy does Culture Night!

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.
