I had the pleasure of performing as part of Centenary on RTÉ on Easter Monday. The show was beautifully choreographed by David Bolger, directed by John Comiskey and starring many talented singers, dancers and actors.

I danced some sean-nós steps with friends Emma O’Sullivan, Samantha Harvey and Eamonn Moloney with music by the fabulous Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, Michael McGoldrick and John Sheahan. Well worth the watch.. hard to hold back  the tears at times. Watch Centenary here: http://www.rte.ie/player/ie/show/centenary-30003958/10552342/.

Dea-scéal! Bhí an bua ag ‘Imeall’ i rannóg ‘Sraith Teilifíse na Bliana’ ag Gradaim Chumarsáide an Oireachtais Dé hAoine seo caite. Déanaim roinnt tuairisceoireachta ar chúrsaí damhsa sa tsraith ó am go ham agus bainim an-sult as. Foireann den scoth! Seo roinnt pictiúr ón ócáid.

Good news! TG4’s ‘Imeall’ won ‘Best Television Series’ at Oireachtas na Gaeilge’s Media Awards last Friday. I do some dance reporting on the show from time to time and thoroughly enjoy working with such a brilliant team! Here are some photos from the event.

We were absolutely thrilled with the performance on the night. Have a look at some of the photos:

Check out my first public appearance in a tutu for years.. TG4 will air the 150th episode of Imeall on Valentines Day so go ahead – be seduced by the arts! Bígí meallta ag na healaíona

imeall_logoTune into TG4 at 10.30pm tonight for Imeall where I’ll be reporting on Art Clash – an Art class with a twist based in Dublin city.

Seo é mo chéad phacáiste le haghaidh Imeall agus bhain mé an-sult as an taifead ag The Twisted Pepper cúpla seachtainí ó shin. Tá súil agam go mbaineann sibhse an spraoi céanna as!

Greetings all!

I’ve been developing a project for Storyland 4 with Gavin FitzGerald for past year or so. Gavin has come out with a great script – Friendly Highs – a comedy centered around two lovable idiots, Martin and Monk who begin selling a lethal but legal drug, ‘Gurns’, unbeknownst to them in a local newsagent of the very ironic title – ‘The Friendly Store’. The product ‘Gurns’ not only does what it says on the tin but also induces terrible spurts of rage in the individual who dares to try it. As the drama begins to escalate at the shop, the owner, a very evil but comical man, McDermott, cashes in on the inhumane product and the local drug dealer, Sharon, the tattooed lady with a fierce ball-breaking attitude, fights to claim back her ‘clientele’.

Auditions for ‘Friendly Highs’ will be held shortly. More info can be found at http://www.filmireland.net/2011/08/12/open-auditions-for-rte-storyland-4-project/ or you can e-mail me at sibeal.davitt@gmail.com
