Mermaid Arts Centre are pleased to host an evening with artist Aoife McAtamney. Aoife has just started to work in Mermaid as Dance Artist in Residence (alongside artist Karen Gleeson) and this is the first event in 2018 where we’re inviting audiences to come and meet Aoife and her collaborators for an intimate performance of Pink Breath And The Sung Essays.
In the performance, the evening light is lit by a fire and we have a homecoming map made up of original songs and dances. ‘My Body Is My Home’ is declared, and together we share a journey of transformation. ‘I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.’ This text is from Audre Lorde’s 1977 speech, ‘The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action’. It serves as Pink Breath And The Sung Essays performance guide, as we share our short stories of reconciliation and connection with you.
