SEODA, Culture Ireland’s online Festival will run from 13 to 17 March
Culture Ireland is delighted to present SEODA, an online Festival of Irish arts and culture around St. Patrick’s Day.
SEODA (Irish for “jewels”) will feature a diverse programme of over 80 contemporary artists and companies including Druid, Irish National Opera, Fishamble: The New Play Company and leading Irish artists including composer Gerald Barry, musicians Tolü Makay, Mick Flannery, Susan O’Neill, Loah, Rónán Ó Snodaigh, Saint Sister, writers Rosaleen McDonagh, Oein DeBhairduin and choreographer Emma Martin. The season will also feature two events specially created by the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris and the Irish Arts Center (New York).
In launching the festival, Minister Catherine Martin T.D. said: “At this special time when Irish artists achieve world attention, I am delighted that SEODA allows free global access to some of Ireland’s finest artists. This year SEODA will build on the success of the initial SEODA festival last year and will complement the Culture Ireland programme which supports artists to travel to present their work in person.”
The programme will start with a selection of new Irish short films on Sunday 13 March. All events are available free to audiences around the world through Culture Ireland’s YouTube channel.
They will be available for a limited time following their scheduled premiere.
