Green Skies, A Double Rhythm

Live site-specific performance, The Curragh, Kildare, 2019




Live site specific performance
The Curragh, October 5th 2019

Green Skies, A Double Rhythm is a site-specific performance that looked at the lived experiences of the ‘Wrens of the Curragh’; a marginalised community
of women sex workers that lived in gorse bushes outside the army base in Kildare in the 19th Century.

The performers led the audience on two different promenade performances that were centered on a live musical score by a drummer on site.  
This multi-layered work looked at the lives of this marginalised community of women, alongside contemporary issues of labour and exploitation.
