SOLO SHOW Glen Hansard

Vicar St, Dublin Mon­day Au­gust 14th & Tues­day Au­gust 15th, 7.30pm ¤35 (sold out) tick­et­mas­ We have writ­ten about Glen Hansard (right) be­fore in these pages, but this time he’s on his own, with­out the safety net of a group of mu­si­cians around him. Ac­tu­ally, strike that – if there’s any mu­si­cian that doesn’t need his hand held it is Hansard. A staunch sup­porter of the busk­ing tra­di­tion (in­deed, the streets of Dublin city centre in the late ’80s/early ’90s is where he honed his craft), the man knows how to hold a crowd in the grip of a per­for­mance. This is a fully seated show, but we’re guess­ing at some point in the evening there’ll be a switch from sit­ting to stand­ing. He’s like that, is Glen Hansard. TCL

INTO THE DARK The Hu­man Flock – Clare Lan­gan

St Carthage Hall, Lis­more Castle Arts, Lis­more, Co Water­ford, un­til Oc­to­ber 1st lis­more­ Ir­ish artist Clare Lan­gan ex­cels at mak­ing haunt­ing, evoca­tive, ex­cep­tion­ally beau­ti­ful films that leave you haunted about what it was you just saw. Am­bi­gu­ity can be a use­ful thing, and if you ditch mean­ing for feel­ing, you can find an ex­pe­ri­ence to revel in. As her lat­est in­cludes a group of peo­ple nav­i­gat­ing an abyss of black wa­ter and fog, the ref­er­ences to mi­gra­tion might seem ob­vi­ous, but as al­ways with this artist, there’s more than quick glib ref­er­ences. And if you’re a fan of misty dark­ness, head over to Lis­more Castle, where Anthony McCall’s in­stal­la­tions will give you all you could wish for, and more (un­til Oc­to­ber 15th).
