RECLAIM, REFORM, REGROW
Positioned in sites throughout contemporary Dublin that signify the failed capitalist property boom, the current political and economic times are reflected in Reclaim, Reform, Regrow. Questions arise surrounding these areas of dereliction and neglect as this body of work calls for growth and change in many aspects of society. Through menial tasks, symbolic gestures are utilised to represent redevelopment and change within the Irish landscape. The performances demonstrate the role of the citizen fighting back and the accepted civic responsibility that needs to materialise in these difficult times. As inhabitants of these times grow more uncertain about the future, a desire to break away from the anxiety and despair is vital to stimulate change.
