THE­ATRE Jack Charles v the Crown Sa­muel Beck­ett The­atre, TCD 7.30pm Jack Charles has been many things in his 71 years: a mem­ber of the Stolen Gen­er­a­tion, sep­a­rated from his Abo­rig­i­nal fam­ily at the age of 4 months; an iconic ac­tor; a heroin ad­dict; a cat bur­glar; a jail­bird; and a po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist. Charles’s per­for­mance for Il­bi­jerri The­atre Company, scripted with play­wright John Romeril, is a story of dis­pos­ses­sion, im­pris­on­ment and a dogged re­fusal to give in.

Air, an ex­hi­bi­tion and also a book, doc­u­ment Daragh Mul­downey’s ex­plo­ration of Green­land’s icy coastal world. He sailed there last year aboard the Kil­lary Flyer. Mul­downey has re­vi­ously con­trasted the land­scapes of the Sa­hara and Ice­land, and looked closely at Ir­ish rock pools. While the Green­land ice is mon­u­men­tal and im­pos­ing, he points out, given cur­rent rates of cli­mate change it may dis­ap­pear en­tirely within 25 years. AD THE­ATRE Our Few and Evil Days
