ART Mer­av­iglia A marvel in­deed. John Daly has lined up a fas­ci­nat­ing trio of artists to show side-by-side. San­dro Chia and Enzo Cuc­chi shone as stars of the 1980sNew Ex­pres­sion­ism, and both have had long, dis­tin­guished ca­reers. Michael War­ren, work­ing in a dif­fer­ent vein, is one of our most renowned sculp­tors. All share a love of Ital­ian art from the pre-Re­nais­sance on. THEATRE Dublin­ers Dilemma To pub­lish or per­ish - or pub­lish and per­ish? The dilemma at the cen­tre of De­clan Gorman’s one-man per­for­mance be­longs not to James Joyce, but the man who brought his mas­ter­ful col­lec­tion of short sto­ries into print, Grant Richards. Hav­ing re­treated from the book in 1906, Richards ap­proached Joyce eight years (and four­teen pub­lish­ers) later, mo­ti­vated by a nag­ging con­science. Alone in his of­fice, Richards is an ap­pre­hen­sive mid­wife to ge­nius, en­rap­tured but fret­ting over ob­scen­ity laws, while ex­cerpts from the book’s sto­ries swell up around him on­stage. SINGER-SONG­WRITER Soak Derry singer-song­writer Bri­die Monds-Wat­son (above) has come a long way since she first be­guiled this writer nearly four years ago at a tiny, sparsely at­tended gig in Belfast. Now all grown up, Soak – as she is known to all and sundry – launches her won­der­ful de­but al­bum, Be­fore We For­got How to Dream, with a short Ir­ish tour. Dates con­tinue be­yond next week, by the way.
