THE DUBLIN LABEL DIATRIBE are curating a festival called Éiríocht at Dalston club the Vortex in London on 16-17 March, new Irish contemporary and improvised music firsts include a film/voice/quintet setting of T.S. Eliot’s seminal 1922 poem The Waste Land, a century changing work along with Ulysses published that year which both gave birth as seminal works to literary modernism. Directed by television and film actor Adrian Dunbar (Line of Duty, Hear My Song) who regularly directs and performs in the plays of Samuel Beckett at the Happy Days festival in Enniskillen, The Waste Land features a score by Nick Roth who has also performed a number of times at the widely acclaimed Fermanagh festival and who leads the Yurodny ensemble. Éiríocht is supported by IMRO and Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish arts in Britain.
