This performance is part of Performing Home

20 NOVEMBER, 6.30PM - 10PM

I directed a play at The Substation Guiness Theatre in 1994, called HOPE. It was a very depressing play, about four characters trying to find a way to live on when everything outside them was crumbling down.

It seems relevant that at this point, in such a trying and difficult time, to look at the idea of Art and Hope.

I am not a performer and so I would like to do a dialogue with audience about the transformative experience of art. It will also be recorded and hope to become part of resource for my current project Statement for the Art.
