An evocative emotional story of a woman’s experience in the Magdalene Laundry on Sean McDermott Street Dublin told using monologue, dance, music and song.

Monologue by writer Féilim James, movement direction by Kate Finnegan with dancers; Siobhan O’Connor, Vitor Bassi, Mufrao Gambe, voice by Michelle Costello, song I knew, you knew…lyrics by Sinead McCann and original music composition and vocals by ELKIN. Performed by ELKIN.

The artwork is presented as part of the exhibition State of the Art, The Nation State as both Violator and Protector of Human Rights, as part of the Smashing Times Dublin Arts and Human Rights festival 15-22 October 2021.
