This intimate, multi-disciplinary workshop combines performative action, discussion, and audience participation, in an exploration of the contribution of women, in culture and politics, over the last 100 years.

 

Responding to the lecture on Constance Markievicz by Pauline Conroy, commissioned by the School of her name, which examines this seminal female figure in Irish history, the workshop observes how chronologically disparate moments speak to each other, and asks where Constance would be today.

 

‘The fold’ is used as a metaphor, to represent the progression of time, and as symbolic of the traditional labour of women. An invited community of interest participate in a series of sensory actions, considerations and discussions.
