Sarah Devereux cartwheels over, dances on, and kicks dust at the line separating Art & Life, and this sometimes induces fear and anxiety! Working in a wide range of disciplines including, drawing, sculpture, paint, performance and video, her work could be described as extreme honesty dressed up in glitter. Her sculptures and drawings are crude but intelligent, disturbing but endearing, ‘fabulous’ but anxious, and immediate but considered. Her performance work moves between traditional performance art, video art, interventions and cabaret. Her work is explicitly political, and often tackles themes of female body autonomy, lack of opportunities caused by the recession, boredom and fear, whilst remaining playful, absurd, and accessible.
Stephen Quinn in a Dublin-based theatre and performance maker who makes clown; music theatre; drag; burlesque, physical theatre, and alternative cabaret. His work is is characterised by both rigorous, aesthetic artistry and a passionate interrogation of the status quo. Recent credits have included co-writing/performing in “Overfired” at the Dublin Fringe and Outburst Queer Arts Festivals (winner of the Outburst Queer Fringe Award, 2018); performing in Zoe Ni Riordan’s award-winning “Recovery” at Projects Arts Centre, Dublin, 2016/17 and the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris, 2017; and performing as a “dandy minion” in MacArthur Genius Taylor Mac’s “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music: The First Act” at the Barbican Theatre, London (LIFT, 2018).
