International Audio Arts Festival
April 4th-7th 2019
Think speed debating, think talk without the chit, think the conversation of life…
Adding a touch of theatre and the surreal to the art of conversation, Salon Du Chat is an arts project with a twist. Recreating the atmosphere of Bohemian Paris, with a knowing nod to online chat rooms, Salon du Chat is a shrine to the art of good conversation.Take a seat, a drink and a menu. But instead of ordering food, order conversation. Who knows, you might actually have the conversation of your life…
Originally conceived by Roisin Buckley, Gillian Jonker, Jennifer Moroney Ward and Conor Buckley, as part of a Daghdha Dance Company project in 2008, Salon du Chat has gone on to be programmed annually by Electric Picnic and has featured at festivals and events around Ireland.
With the support of Limerick City of Culture 2014 Salon du Chat has programmed 5 Salon du Chats in festivals happening around Limerick throughout 2014. Limerick Spring, a Festival of Politics and Ideas, Culture and Chips, Elemental Arts Festival, Buladh Bos Children’s Festival, and HearSay Audio Arts Festival have all included a Salon in their programme. Salon du Chat has created a new menu for each festival and it’s been a year of stimulating conversation, inspirational chats and momentous conversations.
