Weekend loves: This week’s must do, see & buy

We’ve been a long time waiting, but finally ProdiJIG: The Revolution makes its debut at Cork Opera House on Thursday.

An original dance show, it’s been choreographed and created by Alan Kenefick and directed and co-created by theatre director Wayne Jordan, with music from Irish progressive traditional music band MOXIE and composer and sound designer Peter Power.

It’s been dubbed “groundbreaking” and if the rehearsals are anything to go by, that’s no exaggeration.

Good news for tapas fans. The annual Campo Viejo Tapas Trail has returned. 

Tickets sold like gold dust, but a final batch has just released for the July 26 and 27 trails in Cork.

Taking in Arthur Maynes, Brick Lane South, the Bodega and Fenns Quay, think fine wine and Spanish tapas.

Various artists are being featured in Etain Hickey’s window in West Cork, to give you a taste of the riot of colour, patterns, texture and shapes that their work represents. 

Showing at the moment is ‘Figuratively Speaking - Every piece tells a tale’. 

It incorporates the work of 12 artists, including pieces from Alison Ospina’s chairs to John Quinn’s ceramics. We love Maria Aida Austin’s Nichos.
