On Saturday, November 17, the Whale Theatre, Greystones, will come alive with 'An Evening of Extraordinary Ideas' featuring performances, talks and discussion - from music to stand-up comedy, dance to neuro-linguistic programming.

Curated by Wicklow native Brian O' Regan, the event boasts a stellar line-up of performers and speakers including sharp-witted comedian Danny O'Brien, daring musicians Alex Petcu (percussion) and Lina Andonovska (flute), ground-breaking movement from Rob Heaslip Dance and much more.

Based on the concept of 'Extraordinary Ideas', Brian describes the programme as 'a fusion of ideas - all of them extraordinary in their own particular way. From Danny O'Brien's hilarious, thought-provoking ideas to the mind-blowing performances of Alex, Lina and Rob - everything here is based on a truly extraordinary idea and I'm absolutely delighted to be able to bring all of these ideas together in one evening.' Striking performances also come from Scottish/Irish dance group led by Rob Heaslip, who presents a workshop performance of his innovative new work, A Glimpse of Flesh & Blood.

A panel of high profile festival directors and arts leaders will lead a discussion on the arts and cultural sector in Ireland and Theatre Lane will even be showing off its own 'Extraordinary Idea', with Guided Tours of the brand new Boutique Loft Apartments with interior designer Sharon Ryle. Among this unique combination of performance and discussion, the brains behind music education software DabbledooMusic will also give an interactive demo.
