It’s another world down there.
And if you’ve always been fascinated by what goes on under the sea, an Irish cameraman and author who has explored the depths of the North Atlantic Ocean will speak about his encounters with some of the largest creatures on earth during two upcoming events in Cork.
‘Into the Deep’ is a one-man stage show by Ken O’Sullivan, who has created several films and documentary series including ‘North Atlantic: The Dark Ocean’ which aired on RTÉ in May 2023, ‘Ireland’s Ocean’ and ‘Ireland’s Deep Atlantic’ which forms part of the Junior Cert curriculum.
The show, which features videos, stories, and insight into the threats the marine world now faces, takes place at the Celtic Ross Hotel, Roscarberry on Thursday, October 19th at 7.30pm and The Everyman Theatre in Cork City on Wednesday, November 1st.
The speaking tour is supported by Fair Seas, a coalition of leading environmental non-governmental organisations and networks campaigning for strong and ambitious Marine Protected Areas (MPA) legislation to be enacted without delay.
“I’ve made the show as interactive as possible,” said Ken.
“There will be videos, stills, and the stories behind the footage. The North Atlantic Ocean is an incredible place and I’ve been privileged to get up close to enormous whales, monstrous sharks and other spectacular animals.
“It’s fantastic to have the support of Fair Seas for this tour. My work has a strong focus on conservation and I’m passionate about raising awareness about the climate and nature crises.”
Tickets start from €18 and are available here.
