YOU TOLD ME TO WASH AND CLEAN MY EARS

Dates: 16 Sep - 20 Sep

Show Time: 9.15pm

In 1972 the Deaf community came together at a time when they were institutionalised and marginalised in their first act of political awakening to protest the shooting dead of Eamonn  McDevitt by the British Army. Days before Bloody Sunday and weeks before its burning down, they  marched on the British embassy in Dublin.

you told me to wash and clean my ears, a new work springing from Deaf history weaves live art, community theatre and Irish Sign Language. Working collaboratively for the first time at Tiger Dublin Fringe, this performance goes back to look  forward to the recognition of ISL and the rights of Deaf people.

We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?
