Woman Chases Man (1937)

Miriam Hopkins plays an architect who charges into a wealthy developer’s office (Charles Winninger) with a pitch for a new social housing scheme. When he attempts to get rid of her, she passes out cold, woozy from two days without eating. Depression-era woman’s pictures contain numerous scenes of women who faint from hunger, but a Southern belle like Miriam has a stylish fit of vapours. After he revives her with food, they hatch a plan that will make his son (Joel McCrea) finance their project. Once she sees McCrea, business seems less important than being in his arms. If Miriam were not already a sass mouth MVP, she would certainly win the honour with her Pre-Code gangster impression.

For one night only, Mary and her all-star band, will perform favourite songs from her immense catalogue spanning over 30 years. Timeless songs of a generation from No Frontiers and Katie to Bright Blue Rose and many more – songs so many of us know by heart.
Expect a special night where Mary brings her magic to these incomparable, shining songs and many more besides.
For over a quarter-century, singer Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music, both at home and abroad. Mary has released 11 studio albums all of which achieved platinum sales status and spawned countless hits. She has shared stages, TV shows and recording studios with some of the most revered performers of her time. She has also played a front-line role in bringing Irish music, past and present, to an increasingly appreciative and ever-growing global audience.
In an industry noted for its fickleness and its almost insatiable need for fresh novelties Mary Black’s enduring successes have proven that her depth of talent and her love of singing transcend the generations, as well as national and musical boundaries too. She is indeed a real Irish treasure and her talent a gift from this small island to a grateful world.

Begin with a family tour of the Zoology Museum in Trinity College Dublin, led by a real life zoologist. After that, Rob will talk about the fascinating Irish animals in his and Aga’s book Dr Hibernica Finch’s Compelling Compendium of Irish Animals, and Aga (and Margaret-Anne for the relaxed event) will show you how to draw them.

As a child in Poland, Aga Grandowicz wanted to be a vet but changed her mind and became a graphic designer instead. Rob loves coming up with madcap ideas – such as writing a book about animals, despite being allergic to them. Margaret Anne Suggs is the award-winning illustrator of Pigín of Howth, written by Kathleen Watkins. Don’t miss this unique event for animal-loving families!

EventSound Bath with Sonas Therapy

Location- Reformation, Blackrock

Description- Across cultures and time, the practice of using sound in ceremony, celebration, meditation and medicine is common throughout the world, dating back more than 5000 years; including tribal drumming, mantra, chanting, song and vibrational healing, using many ancient instruments such as gong, singing bowls, drums, digeridoo … the list is endless!

During more than 10 years of roving the world, Chloe’s curiosity took her dipping and diving into many cultures, learning about ancient practices and beliefs from Scandinavia to Asia, the plains of Africa and the jungles of Latin America, to the Himalayas and the Indian Subcontinent. Chloe believes that curiosity is the greatest gift and thrives on finding magic and beauty in the little things. It is with this intense curiosity and attention that Chloe creates truly unique and powerful, immersive sound healing experiences, carefully guiding participants on a deeply relaxing and restorative meditative journey.

A constant student of all things sound and meditation, Chloe brings learning from around the world into her work as a sound therapy practitioner. She integrates her training and techniques learned from a diverse range of cultures and countries, including her studies of modern western methods in Germany, as well as traditional eastern methods of working with sound, learned in Nepal while studying the use of sound and vibration in balancing Qi (energy) in ayurvedic medicine.

She believes that everyone has the capacity to access and connect to that deep state of peace and love, that this is your true state and that sound/ vibration is a powerful tool in aiding this connection. And for anyone that thinks that’s all a load of rubbish, at the very least she will leave you feeling totally relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to take on the world again!
Finally drawn back to the motherland last year and based in Dublin, Chloe still likes to roam in her campervan, reconnecting with ancient Ireland and our own rich and mystical history.
She works professionally with sound in the therapeutic setting, offering private sound-massage therapy as an effective complimentary therapy that can assist with reducing stress and anxiety, improve sleep, deepen meditation and bring about clarity, improved concentration, focus and memory.
Her Sound Bath Sessions are not to be missed and where she’ll be bringing good vibrations and a little bit of magic!
