Colm has been working on the music for this wonderful play full of paper puppets to be performed at Lime Tree Theatre in Limerick May 14-16. It’s all music & puppets, no dialogue! Tickets & information can be found here at the Limerick City of Culture website.
Branar’s new show Bláth – The Flower is set in a world that has decided colour and plants are no longer needed. A boy finds a magical book and sees flowers for the first time. He then discovers a packet of flower seeds in a junk shop and must learn how to bring the flower to life.
Bláth is based on the children’s book The Flower by John Light & Lisa Evans. Designed by the artist Maeve Clancy with original music by Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames), Bláth is a non verbal show that will enchant audiences as they enter a world made entirely of paper. Combining, puppetry, object theatre and original score, Bláth promises to a show that will be unforgettable.
This past Monday, Colm, his wife Sheila, their 2 boys Oisin & Darach, and wonderdog Cassie traveled to Cork to meet with Today FM’s Ray D’Arcy at Irish Guide Dogs HQ to promote the launch of SHADES week. SHADES is an awareness & fundraising campaign for Irish Guide Dogs, the organization where Cassie was trained to be an assistance dog for Darach.
Have a listen in here to their chat with Ray starting at about 40 minutes in.
This Sunday April 13th, Colm is a featured act on episode 3 of Other Voices Season 12. The show airs on RTÉ Two at 10:30pm. Sharing the night with him will be Agnes Obel, George Ezra, Joseph Salvat, The Amazing Snakeheads, Mojo Gogo & Pinhole.
