The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - Sara Keat­ing Siob­han Long TCL

This could be the last chance to see Amy Con­roy’s heart­warm­ing 2010 play (the win­ner of two Dublin Fringe Fes­ti­val awards) about a cou­ple of Alices who fall in love over shop­ping bas­kets in Crum­lin shop­ping cen­tre. Stereo­types of sex­u­al­ity are turned on their head as the Alices nar­rate their love af­fair in in­ti­mate and gen­tly comic de­tail. The docu-drama style gives con­tem­po­rary flavour to the form as well as the story. If so­cial jus­tice doesn’t move you to vote Yes in the forth­com­ing ref­er­en­dum, this hu­man story will. TRA­DI­TIONAL Kíla

If the un­pre­dictable serendip­ity of the fair­ground ap­peals to your finer sen­si­bil­i­ties, then Kíla’s live per­for­mances are just the ticket. Hot on the heels of their lat­est al­bum ( Suas Síos), th­ese mu­si­cal fire­breathers em­bark on an­other chap­ter in their ad­ven­tures through the trib­u­taries that feed Ir­ish tra­di­tional and world mu­sic, with no small nod to hip-hop and rap. There re­ally is noth­ing else like them – any­where. SOUND­TRACK 3ep­kano & Iarla Ó Lionáird 1920 si­lent hor­ror clas­sic Der Golem is son­i­cally en­hanced by an orig­i­nal score from Dublin col­lec­tive 3ep­kano and vo­cal sculp­tor Iarla Ó Lionáird (per­haps best known as vo­cal­ist in re­cent Me­teor Choice win­ners The Gloam­ing). Some­thing spooky yet won­der­ful this way comes?
