PICK OF THE WEEK

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - LM John Lane Lau­rence Mackin

Cu­rated by Rachel Donnelly, Liv O’Donoghue and José Miguel Jimenez, this mul­ti­me­dia ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the cre­ative process of dance mak­ers, lift­ing the lid on the per­form­ing arts scene in Dublin and shin­ing a light on the bits that usu­ally re­main hid­den away in the note­books of stage artists. Later this year, Draff will launch its print mag­a­zine, so this week­end’s “show” is just the first act. ROCK Whe­lan’s Says Yes The ven­er­a­ble Ir­ish mu­sic venue puts on a very tempt­ing ros­ter of acts, in­clud­ing Deloren­tos, RSAG, Wyvern Lingo, Twinkranes, At­ten­tion Bebe, Plu­tonic Dust and Elaine Mai. All pro­ceeds on the night go the the Yes Equal­ity cam­paign. IN­TER­NA­TIONAL LIT­ER­ARY FES­TI­VAL DUBLIN We all know the old James Joyce ca­nard about cross­ing Dublin with­out pass­ing a pub, but in the sum­mer months, it seems you can’t cross the coun­try with­out bump­ing into a lit­er­ary fes­ti­val or three.

This week, the In­ter­na­tional Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val Dublin brings a par­tic­u­larly heavy­weight lineup to the cap­i­tal.

On Satur­day prospec­tive au­thors can meet agents at a work­shop in Belvedere House. The poet will also be in town to dis­cuss her Persian trans­la­tion of Blue is the Warm­est Colour, and how it drove her into ex­ile to Prague, along with a screen­ing of the Palme D’Or-win­ning film ver­sion of the graphic novel star­ring star­ring Adèle Exar­chopou­los and Léa Sey­doux (above).

Sun­day has a starry cel­e­bra­tion of 150 years of Alice in Won­der­land with live read­ings and more from bi­og­ra­pher

actress Fiona Shaw, and the great-grand­daugh­ter of Alice Lid­dell, the girl who in­spired the Alice char­ac­ter. And in the Liquor Rooms, will

derailed his jour­nal­ism ca­reer over pla­gia­rism, but now he’s on the come­back trail and his ex­haus­tive study of the US War on drugs has won no lit­tle ac­claim. His event is on Mon­day.

Tues­day night’s star at­trac­tion hardly needs an in­tro­duc­tion at this stage. And on Wed­nes­day, the Big Book Club Show fea­tures thriller writ­ers ( Un­rav­el­ling Oliver) and

( Can Any­body Help Me?), and of­fers the crowd the chance to pit their lit­er­ary wits against a panel of ex­perts. See il­f­dublin.com for tick­ets and more.
