Mother You is an ambitious large scale performance for a disused commercial building which fuses performance, installation and video art to create a tender theatrical moment of activism and communion.
This work was developed with The Abbeyleix Bog Project, a small community in Laois who reclaimed a vast area of bogland from a semi-state body for their own recreational use. You get more information on their activities and on Abbeyleix Bog here.
Mother You premiered in Block B, a large commercial site in Smithfield, Dublin, as part of Dublin Fringe Festival, Sept 2015
Presented by Louise White
About the show
This project was generously supported by
Project Arists - Louise White is a Project Artist, an initiative of Project Arts Centre
Set in a disused warehouse and fusing live performance, installation, video art and ritual, the audience are invited to be guests of this strained community; to collectively witness action and to piece together fragments as the work unfolds.
Spirit of the Fringe Winner 2013 (Way Back Home) returns with this epic, immersive adventure.
