Aine O’Hara: Building an Accessible show: Cast, Crew and Audience

30 Jul 2020, 2:00 pm (Past)


Are you a maker in need of advice on how to create a fully accessible show? Looking to create a safe and comfortable working environment for all of your cast and crew?

Áine O’Hara is an award winning theatre-maker creating exciting and vulnerable work for and about people who are often left out of traditional art and theatre spaces. She is currently at a pivotal stage in her career as she re-imagines how she creates work following her diagnosis with fibromyalgia. O’Hara is a graduate of MFA Design at The Lir, Trinity College Dublin and the Institute of Art and Design, Dun Laoghaire.

O’Hara’s identity as queer, disabled and working class is embedded in her work.  The work questions and exposes bureaucracies that oppress those who fall outside certain definitions of – normal, valuable, and productive. Her work experiments with form and focuses on connection, conversation, and care.
