She crafted and she made.
She flew a plane.
She gave her lovers gifts.
She let her heart be broken.
She was an original and she was endlessly reproduced.

Eileen Gray defied expectations: from her innovative designs to her unconventional personal life, she challenged what it meant to be an artist, a woman and to be Irish.

A true pioneer, she blurred boundaries stimulating new ways of experiencing architecture and design.

Inspired by the way that Gray fused elements, four of Ireland’s top performance companies (including 2016 Olivier Award winner Fishamble) combine contemporary theatre, dance and music to create a compelling voyage into the mind of a once-forgotten, now celebrated, Irish modernist.
