PHOTOS & VIDEO – Make A Move Festival 2014




make a move festival 2014Make A Move Festival 2014, a festival spawned from a meeting of minds between various community groups across the city boasts a strong line-up this year. Returning is the Park Paint Parade, while Limerick based producer and duo combo Mynameisj0hn and MC God Knows will launch their brilliant new album in Dolan’s as a key event.

Hundreds of kids have taken part in workshops in street art, breakdancing and music production over the two previous years of the festival and this year rappers, dancers and graffiti artists will again impart their knowledge.




Jim Carroll brings his popular Banter series to discuss the legacy of City of Culture in Shannon Rowing Club, while DJ Aoife Nic Canna hosts an event in the Cellar Door, and a new performance space to the rear of the Cahill May Roberts building will host an outdoor gig that afternoon.

A music trail of city centre pubs is planned, with live acts and DJs to perform over the July 3-6 festival.

For the first time in its fledgling history, a theatre piece forms part of an extensive line-up of music, street art, workshops and panel discussions. Ray Scannell’s Deep, a play examining legendary clubbing institution Sweat at Sir Henry’s in Cork, a rite of passage and spiritual institution for house music fans in the ‘90s, takes to the stage in 69 O’Connell Street. Featuring interviews and footage of nights at the club, the play – an award winner at the Dublin Fringe – is part fiction, part documentary, exploring the myths surrounding the first generation of house fanatics. Ray uses an imaginative sound design, documentary footage of the club and interviews to tell the story of hapless vinyl junkie Larry Lehane, growing up in a society slowly becoming disillusioned with institutions.
