ADVOCACY

Dates: 06 Sep - 13 Sep

Show Time: 9.15pm

Tickets: €16 - €14 (Preview €11)

Advocacy is a word like any other. Some people use it, some people don’t. From the company that brought you the award-winning Death of The Tradesmen, comes a new play about other people’s shoes, policy making, policy taking, participating and walking miles. Inspired by the Social Model of Disability and conceptually exploring Disability Service Provision in Ireland, it’s an act of empathy and an effort to understand. It’s about respectfully sticking your oar in, speaking up for yourself, sticking up for each other- and the importance of knowing what goes on behind closed doors.

Developed with support from Rough Magic Production Support; the Arts Council; MAKE, a residential workshop facilitated by Cork Midsummer Festival, Tiger Dublin Festival, Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum; and FRINGE LAB, with the support of Tiger Dublin Fringe.

This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
