The Spectrum Centre on the Shankill Road hosted the sizeable Gamelan, a collection of Indonesian percussion instruments. Feedback from Grainne of KIC described the experience as more than sound, involving dance-like movement in the playing. By the end of the workshop the group was able to perform a piece of music.

Monica Corish, a poet based in Leitrim, has published a collection of poems entitled 'A Dying Language' and read from the collection at the Lyric Theatre.

'In 2013 I received a Mentoring Award from the Arts and Disability Forum which allowed me to work intensively with Greagoir O'Duill, developing a collection inspired by the experience of nursing my mother when she was dying of cancer.'
Monica Corish from her website

'It has an authenticity to it that I responded to immediately.'

In the bar area of the Lyric festival goers enjoyed live music from Alan Sheeran, The Hideaways and Andrea Begley. Easy listening and poignant words over a mix of genres.

The evening's presentation was by Zet6 from De Zeyp. Both dance performances were DaDaesque conjuring a surrealist quality. The first series of dances by Sophie de Breuck used Algerian music and a folk printed shawl. Sometimes the dancer seemed to drift between worlds, returning to dance with renewed focus and energy. The Unicorn, performed by Michail Weselow and Jeroen Beyens, had a determined beauty to it, incorporating ballet moves with more relaxed movements with images changing on an overhead screen. Each dancer performed separately, coming together towards the end before Jeroen played piano.
