Block book the weekend now.
The Sounds from a Safe Harbour crew just added three dance and literature shows to their music line-up for this year’s festival, which runs in venues all over Cork from September 7th to 10th, 2023.
On Friday, September 8th, Max Porter presents SHY at The Pav, on Carey’s Lane, Cork.
From the multi-award-winning author of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers (deemed “A perfect book” by the Irish Times) Shy is a novel about guilt, rage, imagination, and boyhood.
In a powerhouse one-night-only improvised multi-disciplinary performance, Porter will read an exclusive abridged version of Shy, joined by the music guests from the SFSH/37d03d residency for a moving and inventive evening of storytelling.

A the same venue on Saturday, September 9th, Megan Barker presents KIT, a story of the sumptuous complication – and precariousness – of life and relationships.
A writer with a background in theatre and performance, Barker has made numerous immersive performances for mundane or neglected public spaces, including a network of crypts, a toilet cubicle, a multi-storey carpark, a roof-top and a basketball court.
On the Friday and the Saturday of the festival, the multi-award-winning Volcano by Luke Murphy and Attic Projects invites audiences into a voyeuristic journey played out across four back-to-back all-in one-day omnibus performances full of surprise and intrigue.
“Volcano crosses the boundaries of experimental theatre, contemporary dance, and psychological sci-fi thriller.” say the organisers.
Curated by festival director Mary Hickson, Bryce and Aaron Dessner of The National, actor Cillian Murphy and playwright Enda Walsh, SFSH will be an unmissable four days of music, dance, literature, theatre, and conversation, with lots of ticketed and free events to explore.
