Andrea da Silva locals special guest                                                                           

Seville based flamenco dancer María “La Serrana” learned from the best: she has been farruquito’s student for over 8 years. Now she is well known in the Sevillian flamenco scene and works three times a week in a tablao owned by herself, as worldwide with her own flamenco company. We are proud to welcome these amazing artists for the first time in Belfast, in the intimate setting of the Black Box. Los Hombros de Hércules (the shoulders of Hercules) is both an ode to the maestros who went before her, as well as to the singers she brings with her in this international tour. The show is also starring gypsy dancer Antonio Moreno “Polito” who is the cousin of maestro Farruquito. A unique and sizzling flamenco evening that is not to be missed.

OTL- Molly
Jan 6 @ 3:00 pm

Sunday 6 January, 3.00pm
Tickets £8.00

Molly is a provocative new adaptation of Joyce’s final soliloquy in Ulysses.

Molly Bloom lies awake, plagued by insomnia, wind and her husband’s snoring, and bares her soul as she questions her life choices.

This vibrant presentation reveals the woman behind the oft-misrepresented caricature; earthy and witty yet vulnerable and sensual. A caustic wit is matched with searing honesty in her night-time musings.

Molly’s observations on relationships strike a chord with contemporary audiences and her unashamed sexuality is startlingly modern. In an age of body shaming, it is refreshing to encounter a woman who is unashamed of her body and physicality.

Molly Bloom is here liberated from the weight of literature in a fresh and revealing portrayal.

Performed by IFTA nominated actress Tara Breathnach (A Nightingale Falling, Jack Taylor) and directed by Petal Pilley.

Following the unprecedented success of his appearance on the final of Britain’s Got Talent 2018, Lee Ridley (aka Lost Voice Guy) makes a triumphant return to this year’s Out to Lunch festival.

He may not be able to talk but he definitely has something to say and his comedy will leave you speechless. Lee is the first stand-up comedian to use a communication aid and made his first stand-up appearance in February 2012.

He has performed in some of the UK’s most popular comedy venues as well as in solo shows at festivals including the Edinburgh Fringe, the Brighton Fringe, Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival, Nottingham Comedy Festival and Liverpool Comedy Festival.

As well as winning Britain’s Got Talent this year (the first comedian to do so), Lee also won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014 and his TV and Radio credits have included The One Show (BBC One), Voice Of The People (BBC Three), BBC At The Edinburgh Festivals (BBC iPlayer). Ability – the Radio 4 series that Lee stars in and co-wrote with Katherine Jakeways – has just been recommissioned for a second series.

Saturday 12 January, 2.00pm & 8.00pm
Afternoon tickets £10.00
Evening tickets £12.00 / £10.00

”These guys play with dust in their Levis and the road their hearts”.

We are delighted to host The Dodge Brothers performing songs from their long-awaited new album Drive Train and bringing their exuberant hybrid of country blues, rockabilly, jugband and skiffle back to Out to Lunch.

You will be one of the first to hear this long-awaited new album, coming 5 years since The Sun Set and described as “wonderful stuff” by Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris.

Firmly rooted in these traditions The Dodge Brothers bring to them a freshness that has feet stomping and hands clapping from California to Cropredy, from the Mississippi to the New Forest. Their songs feature vocal virtuosity and heartfelt harmonies underpinned by joyous guitars, thumping double bass and rattlin’ snare and washboard.

The Dodge Brothers features Mike Hammond (lead guitar, lead vocals, banjo), Mark Kermode (bass, harmonica, vocals), Aly Hirji (rhythm guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Alex Hammond (washboard, snare drum, percussion).

Their music has an authentically American tang – lead guitarist/vocalist Mike Hammond was raised in Alabama and his youthful musical travels took him all over the southern and western USA – but with a strong British perspective from Culture Show presenter and film critic Mark Kermode.
