Our daily guide to the 10 Days in Dublin festival. Your suggestions are always welcome, leave a comment below.
Trinity Orchestra has enjoyed a well-deserved series of gigs (Forbidden Fruit and Electric Picnic as well as last year’s 10 Days in Dublin) since their interpretation of Daft Punk’s Discovery. Now they are tackling another iconic album – Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. In the atmospheric and acoustically stunning surrounding of Christchurch, this is a concert that will transport you. The only thing that could make it better would be if they screened The Wizard of Oz at the same time.
Christchurch, July 8th, 8pm.
Magician Shane Gillen returns to 10 Days in Dublin with a new show, Mind Heist. Gillen is not a rabbit-out-of-hats type of magician – think of mind-bending along the lines of Derren Brown and you’re much closer to the mark. Mind Heist promises to be a cognitive experience rather than a ‘magic show’, playing on people’s emotions through hypnosis, mesmerism and apparent mind-reading.
