DDF Company in Residence | Ireland
(Liz Roche Company)
Liz Roche’s Wrongheaded merges film, voice and movement to confront the stark realities of women’s rights and freedom of choice in Ireland today.
Having premiered at the 2016 Dublin Fringe Festival, this extended version showcases powerful dance performances propelled by the fiercely spoken words of Galway poet Elaine Feeney, interwoven with the exquisite work of Mary Wycherley (filmmaker), Ray Harman (composer) and Stephen Dodd (lighting designer).
An intense forum for emotion and physicality, Wrongheaded emerged amidst the call to repeal the 8th Amendment but ultimately offers a refuge from the debate and a space to consider the issues from a new perspective.
“There’s an urgency, immediacy and power to 'Wrongheaded' that catches your breath… Not to be missed.” - The Arts Review
