An Túr/the Tower: the Tarot Project
Imram Féile Litríochta Gaeilge
I’m performing three of Bob Dylan’s epic songs in irish! Isis, No Time To Think and Changing of the Guards, all of which are translated to irish by Gabriel Rosenstock. Delighted to be sharing the stage again with the awesome Dairena Ní Chinéide and the wonderful Helen Ivory to explore the weird world of Tarot. More info about the performance below.
The art of Tarot poetics began in Renaissance Italy with Teo lo Folengo and his contemporaries, and since then poets including W B Yeats, T S Eliot and Marge Piercy have used the Tarot in their work. Curated by Liam Carson, The Tower features Dairena Ní Chinnéide (in Irish) and Helen Ivory (in English)reading work inspired by the Tarot cards, with on-screen projections created by Margaret Lonergan. On his albums Desire and Street-Legal, Bob Dylan wrote a series of songs drenched in Tarot imagery, and a selection of these, transcreated into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock, will be performed by Enda Reilly.
