Mícheál Ó hAodham Helen Ivory, Gabriel Rosenstock and Enda Reilly explore the theme of snow. Part of IMRAM. 

The Snow Project features three poets - two in Irish, one in English - exploring the theme of snow. Mícheál Ó hAodha has recently published Leabhar Dubh an tSneachta, in which he explores themes of loss, memory and snow. Helen Ivory is a poet and collage artist, and the author of Waiting for Bluebeard and The Breakfast Machine. Penelope Shuttle has described her work as creating 'a troubled yet beguiling world rich in irony and disquiet'. Gabriel Rosenstock will read Irish transcreations of a selection of Japanese haiku on the theme of snow. Margaret Lonergan will create visuals, whilst the poets will read to musical accompaniment from Enda Reilly. 
 
Tá triúr filí, duine acu i mBéarla agus an bheirt eile i nGaeilge, ag dul i ngleic le téama an tsneachta sa tionscadal seo. Duine acu is ea Mícheál Ó hAodha, údar an tsaothair Leabhar Dubh an tSneachta, cnuasach gearrdhánta ata ag ple le cuimhne, caillteanas agus sneachta. File agus ealaíontóir colláise í Helen Ivory, údar Waiting for Bluebeard agus The Breakfast Machine.Domhan suaite a léiríonn sí, dar le Penelope Shuttle, suaite ach meallacach mar sin féin, lán d'íoróin is míshuaimhneas. LéifidhGabriel Rosenstock haiku leis an máistir Issa, ó cheantar an tsneachta Shinano sa tSeapáin, traschruthaithe i nGaeilge. Beidh íomhánna scáileáin againn ó Margaret Lonergan agus tionlacan ceoil ó Enda Reilly.
