Gliondar

Bhunaigh Rosaleen Ní Shúilleabháin agus Vanessa Daws Gliondar i 2010.

“Tugann ’Gliondar’ draíocht na hathbheochana stop-ghluaiseacht agus béaloideas le chéile go hidirghníomhach le traidisiúin áitiúla a choinneal beo i meán ealaíne comhaimseartha.”

Rosaleen Ní Shúilleabháin and Vanessa Daws set up Gliondar in 2010.

“To introduce a relationship between the magic of stop motion animation and the traditional art of story telling as an exciting and interactive method of preseving local stories in a contempary medium”.

Nuair a déantar teagmháil leis an scoil, sin é an uair a thosaíonn an tóraíocht do scéal. Is maith le Gliondar scéalta nach bhfuil chomh coitianta sin a léiriú.  An scéal nach bhfuil fhios ach ag cúpla duine.  An cuid is mó don am, bíonn scéal roghnaithe ag an grúpa.  Anois is arís, tugann muid isteach seanchaí chun sampla maith do scéalta a dhéanamh le na daltaí.  Is minic a bhain muid úsáid, as an Bailiúcháin Béaloidis atá le fáil i leabharlann faoi leath.  Anseo tá na scéalta a bhailíodh i rith an scéim bailiúchán na scoileanna 1937-38.

After making contact with a group or school, Gliondar starts the search for a local story with the help of the groups; preferably not the more famous stories, but one that is not so well known. We prefer the stories that were passed down from Grandparents or an elderly neighbour next door.  But we do search through archives, and the microfilm which holds the collection from the School’s Folklore Scheme 1937-38 is an invaluable source of stories to Gliondar.  Sometimes we would bring in a  local seanchaí to take the group on an adventure of local stories. Gliondar  would then teach the groups to storyboard, make characters and backgrounds and then to animate the stories. The groups also create the sound effects and voice overs and depending on the timescale will help with some of the editing process.

Cruthaíonn Gliondar tograí beochan stop-gluaiseacht do gach aois ghrúpa agus i chuile comhthéacs.

Gliondar creates animation projects to all groups of all ages in any context.

Swimming in Ballycroy

Is amharc ealaíontóir í Vanessa. Déanann sí eilimintí digiteach fís, fuaim agus beochan a comháthú ins a chuid taispeántais. D’oibre sí mar ealaíontóir in ealaín pobal ó tús na nóchaidí.  Tá go leor taispeántas rathúil déanta aici thar na blianta agus bhí seacht thaispeántas aonair aici  ó  2009.

Tá snámh lárnach ina chuid oibre agus ina focail fhéin tugann sí míniú cén fáth “through the swimmers I meet and the shared experience of water my work explores ways in which we accept as normal our pursuits and chosen ritual, but also how through acclimitisation and adaption we can surprise ourselves and go beyond our expectations.”

Is teagascóir do eachtraí seachtraigh í chomh maith  agus i 2010 rinne sí ceangail idir é seo agus an drámaíocht nuair a chuir sí dhá togra “Outdoor Theatre” ar siúil.  Tá an-suim aici sa Ghaeilge agus an béaloideas.

Bhain sí amach Ard-Dioplóma sa Drámaíochta i OEI Gaillimh i 2013.  Tá sí ag obair le Forum Connemara mar Oifigeach Áineasa Tuaithe do Chonamar.  Tá an suim aici i sean traidisiún an scéalaíocht, an Gaeilge agus an cultúir áitiúil.

Rosaleen is also an outdoor education instructor and often combines the outdoors and the Arts. In 2010, she developed an outdoor theatre, and has produced two events in this space. She completed a Higher Diploma in Drama Studies in 2013.  She is currently working with Forum Connemara as the Rural Recreation Officer for Connemara.

Her interest and passion for the Irish language, local folklore and the art of storytelling has brought her to create Gliondar.
