The channel’s flagship bilingual arts series returns for its 7th season with presenter Tristan Rosenstock and his team chronicling cultural life in Ireland, getting up close and personal with our leading artists in all corners of the country.
The series regularly features established and emerging talent. Some of Ireland’s best known will be giving in-depth interviews. These include Chieftain’s founder and leader Paddy Moloney, writer Emma Donoghue, composer Bill Whelan, poet Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Hozier, Ireland Chair of Irish Poetry Paula Meehan, artist Mick O’Dea as well as international artists such as stage and TV actor John Mahoney. From Lego sculptures to circus skills, Imeall will showcase every aspect of Ireland’s creative magic.
This week's Imeall is a special episode exploring circus skills in Ireland. Rossa Ó Snodaigh went to the European Juggling Convention during the summer to meet with some of the best circus performers and jugglers in the world. He takes part in an aerial dance workshop with Fidget Feet. He also meets the Fossett family from Ireland's oldest traditional circus and the Fanzini Brothers who have set up a modern style circus. We also meet some of the performers from Galway Community Circus and hear about the work they do teaching circus skills to kids.
