TULCA Festival of Visual Arts and Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture present UnSelfing.
This performance, by Isadora Epstein, will take place on the Galway to Gort train as it travels between the two locations, highlighting UnSelfing’s theme of interior and exterior journeys.
After gathering at Ceannt Station in Galway City, attendees will board the 1.45pm train and be treated to Weather Gods, which combines a mythological weather report with a train trip out West on the Great Western Railway.
Epstein’s performance will be accompanied by musicians Davy Kehoe, Daniel McAuley and Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh.
On arrival in Gort, guests are invited to attend the official launch of TULCA’s 2020 UnSelfing programme at Gort Library, with readings from Iris Murdoch and speeches followed by transport by bus back to Galway city at 5pm.
Tickets €10 – Booking essential
