HISTORY OF IRELAND by Sarah Blanc / Moxie Brawl
History of Ireland is a brand new show for five women (and a sack of potatoes), which attempts to re-write the History of Ireland form a female perspective, using theatre, comedy and dance. Moxie Brawl welcomes you to the annual Irish beauty pageant ‘The Rose Of Tralee’ where the contestants treat you to a taste of Ireland. Taking a look at the stereotypes from leprechauns and nuns, to folklore and myths, to Micheal Flatley’s mother, nothing is left unsaid as they re-write the history of Ireland. Highlighting Irish women’s achievements often forgotten in history books, such as their role during the Civil War, winning the right to vote to the struggles Irish women faced in the laundries and how in 2017 abortion is still illegal. It will be loud, thoughtful, fun, slightly crazy and very green. History Of Ireland is funded by Arts Council England and supported by Candoco Dance Company, GLYPT, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, China Plate, DanceEast, South East Dance and Siamse Tire.
