ANU & CoisCéim Dance Theatre
by David Bolger, Owen Boss and Louise Lowe

Thrusting audiences into the events of one hundred years ago using a lens of today, THESE ROOMS explores the 1916 rebellion through the eyes of civilians at the moment when the uninvited rising invaded their homes in North King Street with devastating consequences. THESE ROOMS combines eye witness testimonies from 38 female voices with newly released findings of the government inquiry which followed and investigates questions of dignity and cultural trauma, belonging and dispossession. It is a fearless and embodied physical performance, immersing audiences in a deeply intimate experience and in doing so, reaffirming the role of art in negotiating history.

ISL performance with Amanda Coogan
When : Saturday 12 November | 2:30pm
Where: 85/86 Upper Dorset Street
Booking information : bridget@coisceim.com
