Wrongheaded merges film, poetry and movement to confront the realities of women's rights and freedom of choice in Ireland. It was created in response to the on-going debate to abolish the Irish constitutional ban on abortion; a ban which was eventually overthrown by referendum in May 2018. While standing as a testament to a momentous time of change in Ireland, WRoNGHEADED also delves deep into the institutional repression that mediates much of our society's behaviour to this day. Driven by Elaine Feeney's spoken word poetry and electrifying performances from the dancers, the piece is a jolt to the system.
Alongside the fearless poetry of Elaine Feeney, the piece features the exquisite work of film director Mary Wycherley, composer Ray Harman and lighting designer Stephen Dodd with electrifying performances by dancers Sarah Cerneaux, Justine Cooper, Jack Webb and Kevin Coquelard.
