12 Acts of Christmas was glór’s festive gift in the countdown to Christmas. In December glór shared a specially recorded short 3-minute act by a diverse range of artists and local performers on its social media channels and website.
Whilst glór can’t welcome audiences in person, 12 Acts of Christmas captured a flavour of its usual festive performances. Acts included Ballet Ireland; pianist Sean Shannon; the Kilfenora Céilí Band, Susan O’Neill & Tara Howley; Sarah McTernan and well-loved Pantaloons characters; Clare Youth Theatre; The Speks; Nóta Stóta, Nuala Kennedy & Jack Talty; Branar Theatre; Clare Youth Trad Orchestra and Jacinta Sheerin with Steo Wall.
The 12 Acts of Christmas were filmed by film makers Alex Gill and Maeve Stone, based in Ennistymon.
The 12 Acts of Christmas are viewable on below and also on glór’s YouTube channel.
Whilst the lights in glór are dark and performances have moved online, we continue to support artists in many ways including commissioning work, developing initiatives and making our spaces available for artists to develop work. We continue to celebrate and support arts in Clare and we hope that you enjoy these beautiful performances.
