Arán & Im celebrates the Irish language in an engaging, accessible bilingual way, through sourdough bread and home-churned butter.
Arán & Im is a theatrical performance/installation in which Manchán bakes sourdough bread for 70 minutes while offering insights into the wonders of the Irish language – exploring potent words of landscape, terms of intuition and insight, and the many phrases that bring to life the mysterious glory of our natural world.
It is a celebration of language, land and local Irish food, with freshly-baked traditional sourdough bread for the audience to slice and spread with butter they churn themselves from Irish cream.
Is taibhiú drámaíochta é Arán & Im ina mbácálann Manchán arán taois ghéir ar feadh 70 nóiméad fad is a thugann sé léargas ar iontaisí na Gaeilge – agus é ag ceiliúradh focail mhealltacha a bhaineann leis an tírdhreach, téarmaí i dtaca le hiomas agus léirstean, agus an iliomad nathanna a thugann beocht do chumhacht agus mistéir an tsaoil nádúrtha.
