Arán & Im: Manchán Magan
20th October @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm€14 – €16
“Shall we bake bread together and churn some butter, and talk about things that really matter?” asks Manchán Magan, the presenter of the 70-minute bilingual show, Arán & Im, which explores what makes Irish so unique and potent. “What’s the word for the lonesomeness of a cow bereft of her calf? Or, for the sound horses make when they meet after an absence? To what extent is the language embedded in the Otherworld?” Join Manchán as he bakes bread and churns butter and reveals the link between sourdough and the transformational power of Irish.
