Friends of Merlin Woods: The Night of the Harvest Moon

Time: 5-7pm | Address: Merlin Woods, Galway, Ireland | Contact: 085 248 4380

Time:

As the afternoon turns to dusk, the Goddess of the Harvest “Demeter” will welcome in the Autumn. Gathering clans from every corner of the woods, awakening the Celtic Gods from all corners of creation. So don your masks, fill your sacks, and make haste to the feast /Be guided by the sounds; be soothed by the songs and let / theatre be the master of your imagination.

Our culture night event will include many aspects of theatre: Performance, song, dance, and interactive community engagement. The focus of our theme will be on community engagement on the lead up to the evening and it is also hoped we will have a fancy dress element to the evening where people will don the masks of the gods of which there are many associated with nature and its elements throughout the world.

All culminating is a feast for the community to share.

5.00 – 7.00i.n.

Ag titim na hoíche cuirfidh Bandia an Fhómhair, “Déiméitéir”, fáilte roimh an bhFómhar. Tiocfaidh clanna ó gach cearn de na coillte le chéile agus músclófar Déithe Ceilteacha ar fud na ndúl. Cuir ort do mhasc mar sin, líon do mhála agus déan deifir go dtí an féasta / Lean na fuaimeanna; lig do na hamhráin suaimhneas a chur ort agus lig / don dráma dul i bhfeidhm ar do shamhlaíocht. Beidh go leor gnéithe amharclannaíochta ag baint leis an ócáid seo de chuid na hOíche Cultúir: léiriúchán, amhránaíocht, damhsa, rannpháirtíocht idirghníomhach phobail.

Beidh muid ag díriú ar rannpháirtíocht phobail agus an oíche ag teannadh linn agus tá muid ag súil go mbeidh bréigéide i gceist ar an oíche agus go gcaithfidh daoine maisc na ndéithe, a bhfuil an t-uafás acu ann ar fud an domhain a bhfuil baint acu leis an dúlra agus leis na dúile. Ina dhiaidh seo ar fad beidh féasta ann le roinnt ag an bpobal.
