Saibhreas - Irish Palestinian Cultural Exchange Residency

Saibhreas is a new project developed by Common Knowledge, project coordinator Aoife Hammond and Artists Amir Abualrob and Sorcha Fox.

Saibhreas is an Irish word that translates to ‘richness’ or ‘wealth’ - In the Irish language it is often though of as a richness not from wealth but from connection - with this project we are focusing on the richness that comes from interpersonal connection and exchange and the community
that can be built from sharing stories.

From March 27 - 29 Artists Sorcha Fox and Amir Abularob will be ‘artist-in-residence’ at Common Knowledge as part of the residency they will link in with the local palestine community in Clare take part in a social and cultural evening onsite, perform a new theatre piece and work with local Clare musician Tara Baoth Mooney. 

Saibhreas - development of new work
On the 28th and 29th of March Sorcha Fox and Amir Abualrob will rehearse and develop their piece ‘Saibhreas’ for a performance on the evening of the 29th March.

‘'Saibhreas' - Event March 29th
Amir and Sorcha will present a new theatre piece, 'Saibhreas', inspired by the connections between Irish and Palestinian communities, their shared relationship to the land and the history of colonisation in both countries.
