Towards A Consideration of all Bodies

Wednesday 7 November
Towards A Consideration of all Bodies | Wednesday 7 November | The LAB

People with disabilities have bodies that function differently from the socially ‘normal’ body that is accepted and assumed. Towards A Consideration of All Bodies is a platform for artists with disabilities to engage and examine this proposition through interdisciplinary performance.

The ‘normal’ body is the body the world considers and is designed for. The artists Hugh O’Donnell (live-art), Mairéad Folan (theatre) and Phil Kenny (poetry) respond to their experience of interactions with their family, others on the street, in public spaces, in finding work, friends and relationships, accessing services and buildings. These artists make exciting and thought provoking performances around disability rather than about it.

Towards A Consideration of All Bodies is curated by Róisín Power Hackett, who also has a disability. The event is supported by Sheena Barrett (The Lab), Dublin City Council and the Arts Council.

Admission is free, but booking is essential via EventbriteRegister for Ticket
