Due to the success of its recent debut 'Drum Hang' tour, Common Grounds Collective with Graham Hopkins, renowned as one of the greatest and most influential Irish drummers of his generation, is embarking on a new tour of Ireland's independent coffee shops.

 Following a hectic touring schedule with Oscar-winner Glen Hansard, Graham is combining his two great passions - drums and coffee with this upcoming nationwide tour. Graham will visit 7 of Ireland's best loved independent coffee shops between 23rd May and 22nd June for an intimate hang out, to play and talk drums, music, and drink coffee.

Tickets for these tour dates are bound to sell out, so early action is highly recommended.

THE HUMAN PROJECT
A STANLÆY COLLABORATIVE PROJECT

Design by Lauren Varian

Design by Lauren Varian

Common Grounds Collective artist, Stanlæy's most recent project, The Human Project, will be screened at Harbour Lights Cinema on the 22nd May 2017. Screening begins at 8:30, and there is a Bar at Harbour Lights to enjoy a little refreshment before the screening for those who desire, event starting from 7:30.

The Human Project is a multi-faceted audio-visual project exploring the body as a medium of expression. There have been over 50 musicians, artists, actors/actresses, videographers and helpers involved in bringing this project to reality. The project began in late 2016, when Stanlaey's fascination in videography and story telling began to grow more intense alongside her current studies within embodiment, and dualisms.

The project embodies 7 elements, within 7 songs and videos where each song comes to personify an element in a unique and distinct way. The Human Project will take you through 7 hues, revealing the body as a canvas to represent natural elements as a metaphor for cognitive states of mind.

Tickets are limited, and are on high demand- so make sure to buy one ahead of time to secure your place! This is a black tie event so dress up as much as you can/wish to. (Smart pagan wear is also welcomed and encouraged).

See you on the big screen,
Love from STANLÆY and the Humans of The Human Project.
