Exploring instances of disclosure and the presence of stigma in the lives of men and women who are HIV+ in Ireland today, Rapids is a new work from Talking Shop Ensemble that looks to playfully and respectfully make the private public.

In making this piece, the company have collaborated with several groups from the HIV+ community.

From young men in rural Ireland to migrant women seeking asylum, this form-flipping piece of documentary theatre will take you through the myriad of perspectives and experiences that compound what it means to live positive in this country.

Contains references to sex and sexual violence that some may find distressing, recommended for ages 17+
