2adCWVicissitudes marks the beginning of the first commission of Colm Cille’s Spiral.

The setting is the marina on the Foyle Marina, Queen’s Quay, Derry, Northern Ireland. The river is the fastest flowing in the country and Derry city holds strong connections to Saint Colm Cille.

The date is 9th June, St. Colm Cille’s feast day, when celebrations and festivities take place to commemorate the patron Saint.

Vicissitudes is a voice and sound performance that explores themes of exile and immigration, the lament and economic myths inherent to the life of Colm Cille.

Artist Ceara Conway will be doing this performance in the Colmcille curragh (pictured below) on the River Foyle this Sunday 09th June. Performance times: 1.45pm, 2.30pm, 3.15pm & 4.00pm. Places on the boat are free but limited so booking is required either by emailing me on: mckeever.maggie@gmail.com or phoning: 0778 454 6910.DSC_0325-2
