Russia, Art and the Romanovs

December 11, 2018

An elegant exhibition at Queens Gallery.

About a time just before the ‘yellow jackets’ of that era make their appearance.

A lot of things have changed. A lot of things have remained the same.

A divide between the haves and the have nots

Still.

Molly Sweeney by Brian Friel

April 13, 2013

Great play and a nice performance at The Print Room tonight. Mollie Sweeney by Brian Friel with Dorothy Duffy as Molly, Ruairi Conaghan as Frank and Stuart Graham as Mr Rice.

The trip from blindness to vision, from understanding to seeing, from experiencing to visualising is a long and not an easy one.

What do we expect to see and what do we expect to understand? A miracle operation succeeded in restoring Molly’s sight but failed to make her register with what she sees. It is not only Molly, who needs to be, it is Frank and Mr Rice who need to make sense of their damaged realities.

‘So the question she had to ask herself was: How much do I want to know this world? And am I prepared to make that enormous effort to get it?’
