StorySketch with live cello music by Claire Fitch - Thursday, 24 June from 8pm

You are invited to listen and draw while Wilson and Oh-Aissieux tell a selection of their best tales and the very talented Claire Fitch demonstrates her unique concept in live, improvised, electric and acoustic cello, in the cosy Victorian sitting room that is the Library Bar Extension.

This is the first time that the Narrative Arts Club will feature live music, and there can be few better ways to advance the club's commitment to innovation in Irish storytelling than to engage with an experimental demonstration of Claire's Ambiencellist sound. For more info about Claire Fitch and her innovative approach to playing cello with new technologies, please see the Ambiencellist website:

This show will include a performance by The Oh-Aissieux of the first part of the Tibetan epic, Gesar of Ling, and will also feature Scott Anthony Kelly, who will tell the story of Tuan of the Isles in his inimitable, free and lively style.

Please see intriguing and beautiful visual art works inspired by previous StorySketch sessions:
James Moore’s Lost Souls evening
Lucky Fish's Arabian Nights
Sarah Bowie’s Cailleach Bhéarra

Thursday, 24 June 2010 from 8 to 10.30pm. Doors 7.30.
Library Bar Extension, Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2.
Admission EUR 6. Concessions EUR 2.

Free admission to artists whose work is used to promote the Narrative Arts Club.
