Nurse Me

St. Brendan’s Psychiatric Hospital Grangegorman, Dublin Fringe Festival 2009

Presented by Louise White and Kate Nic Chonaonaigh


Here we made a site-responsive piece in four adjoining rooms in a disused part of the hospital’s annexe building. The work explored ideas of atonement and confession by the performers purging themselves of personal stories and possible case histories. The audience also spent time alone in an evocative incense filled confessional room, where they experienced four different types of reflective stations.
