YOU TOLD ME TO WASH AND CLEAN MY EARS

Dates: 16 Sep - 20 Sep

Show Time: 9.15pm

Tickets: €16.00 - €14.00 - €11.00

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.

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.

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…
