Dates: 28 Apr - 28 Apr

Tickets: €5


ACTING OUT FOR HOPE AND CHANGE is a series of powerful and provocative dramatisations scripted and performed by members of the Domestic Workers Action Group. The production is the result of ten weeks of drama workshops between Rampant Productions and the women of DWAG.

Using improvisation, drama and interviews, the performance examines the hopes and realities of the women, who all share one common experience of being migrant women living and working in the homes of their employers as childminders and caregivers.

‘Acting Out’ raises questions about the treatment of migrant women who perform the essential ‘Care Work’ in our society today. It also explores the importance of being unified to challenge and overcome barriers faced, and what being part of the group means to the women.

The Domestic Workers Action Group, supported by the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland, was established in 2004 to empower women employed as childminders, cleaners and caregivers to fight for their rights.

The Domestic Workers Action Group, supported by the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland, was established in 2004 to empower women employed as childminders, cleaners and caregivers to fight for their rights.

Domestic workers are particularly vulnerable to exploitation as many are working invisibly in the homes of their employers, isolated from the community outside. Many are overworked, underpaid and undervalued by their employers. DWAG campaigns for improved living and working conditions in this sector while calling for rights, dignity and recognition of all women employed in private homes in Ireland.

Rampant Productions are Katie Holmes and Sinead O’Loughlin.
