Freak Out! this Wednesday

Published September 14, 2014 by klaramcdonnell

This coming Wednesday, myself and Sean Cray will be performing at Freak Out! in the Czech Inn in Temple Bar. This will be Sean and I’s first gig in a long time as I had to leave Hypno Puppet to concentrate on my drama facilitation studies. The gig is free and we will be rocking out with the help of Sean’s loop pedal.

Check out us performing live at the Voodoo Lounge for a taster of what you might be hearing.

Gamelan at National Concert Hall

Published September 7, 2014 by klaramcdonnell

I really enjoyed taking part in a Gamelan workshop on Saturday with my boyfriend. On Sunday evening we enjoyed a performance by the Yogyakarta Palace Musicians and Dancers. I adored the dancers costumes/makeup and synchronized movements.

The Sultan of Yogyakarta, Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, with the assistance of the Indonesian Embassy in London and the Provincial Government of Yogyakarta, Java, has gifted the National Concert Hall with a complete set of Javanese gamelan instruments. The gamelan, a set of bronze instruments which will accommodate up to thirty people, has been purpose-built by the Sultan’s gamelan artisans. It is intended that the gamelan be widely used as part of the National Concert Hall’s education and outreach programme.


Recent facilitation adventures

As some of you know, I am currently a drama facilitation student at Artstrain (NAYD). A few days ago Chris Johnston, came in and did an inspiring workshop with us. In the evening we watched a Q and A session with him in the Peacock Theatre.


My ticket to a great talk

For the last three weeks I have been having fun assisting at Wonderland’s Summer Camps. The other day I had to do “teacher in role” for a game and did my fastest ever witch makeup!

New Omniplex at Rathmines

At the after party

Yesterday I went to see Inbetweeners 2 at the new cinema in Rathmines. I didn’t think the movie would be quite my cup of tea as I had never seen any of the tv show or the previous movie. The stand out, laugh out loud moments for me were probably the moment shocking/un p.c. scenes.
