Liz Roche Company presents
Liz Roche’s WRoNGHEADED merges film, voice and movement to confront the stark realities of women's rights and freedom of choice in Ireland today.
The fierce spoken words of Galway poet Elaine Feeney drive the piece, with electrifying performances by exceptional dancers Sarah Cerneaux, Justine Cooper, Kevin Coquelard and Jack Webb interwoven with the exquisite work of filmmaker Mary Wycherley, composer Ray Harman and lighting designer Stephen Dodd.
★★★★ "stimulating, thought provoking, and provocative, offering new and alternate perspectives...profoundly impressive work....highlights the frustrations women feel in relation to the choices, or lack of, available to them around their health and bodies in Ireland today" The Arts Review
All elements are gathered together to create an intense forum for emotion and physicality but ultimately, WRoNGHEADED is a refuge from the debate; a space to consider these issues from a new perspective.
Jack Webb, one of the dancers, on the show:
"Dancing WRoNGHEADED feels to me like a powerful physical and energetic look at the battle between external and internal forces at play.
It's a reminder of how returning to the dancing body can help us to explore all of the messy and visceral nuances of autonomy, control and humanity."
Liz Roche Company has been presenting evocative and compelling contemporary dance on Irish and International stages for over 15 years.
