Four days of arts, theatre and entertainment

Four days of arts, theatre and entertainment are coming your way this week.
It includes a mix of live enterainment and visual arts to suite a range of tastes.
Fermanagh Live opened in Fermanagh House on Wednesday, with ‘The Last Confessions of Alexander Pearce’.
It tells the story of 34 year-old Fermanagh farm labourer Alexander Pearce, who is convicted of theft and shipped to the Van Diemen’s Land (Tasmania) penal colony in Australia. He manages to escape his bonds before being driven to murder and cannibalism in the Australian outback.
The film was written and produced by Fermanagh man Nail Fulton and features Fermanagh actors Ciaran McMenamin as Alexander Pearce and Adrian Dunbar as Philip Connolly.
It was followed by Ciaran McMenamin in conversation with Seamas Mac Annaidh.
Thursday, Kabosh Theatre Company presents Green & Blue followed by a discussion with the playwright Laurence McKeown after the performance. Green & Blue explores the realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict. This multi-media production looks at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a man-made line in the ground. It is based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Siochana officers.
The production will be held in South West College, from 1.30pm to 3pm. Another event on the same day includes Jenny Cathcart in conversation with Carlo Gebler at 7pm in the Buttermarket.
Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre also presents ‘Questions of a man’ in the Ardhowen Theatre at 9pm, also on Thursday.
The production, the third between long-time collaborators Dylan Quinn and Jenny Ecke, allows the dancers and the audience to explore challenging issues in a performance and experience that is both engaging and emotionally powerful.
