WRoNGHEADED Returns to Dublin Dance Festival 2018

Liz Roche Company presents


Liz Roche’s powerful dance piece confronts the stark realities of women's rights and freedom of choice regarding abortion at the dawn of Ireland’s referendum for Repeal the 8th

Liz Roche Company is known for its evocative and compelling dance productions and this year make a very timely re-release of their powerful dance show Wrongheaded - just as Ireland plans to go to referendum and Repeal the Eighth, to amend its constitution on women’s rights. This powerful production merges film, voice and movement and confronts the stark realities of women's rights and freedom of choice in our country today. The show opens at the Dublin Dance Festival 2018, running at Project Arts Centre (May 16 & 17) and moves to Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire (May 22) and Hawks Well, Sligo (May 24).
In this new version of the original 2016 production, which premiered at the Dublin Fringe Festival, audiences will experience an additional male dance duet performed by Kevin Coquelard and Jack Webb, who mirror the choreography of the two superb female dancers, Sarah Cerneaux and Justine Cooper. Roche has purposefully made the clever inclusion of men in this edition of the piece, as it is crucial to highlight that men also have a role in this significant debate on women’s issues.
