Meeting point at the Old Bray Hotel

 

Lisa Freeman’s new scripted performance work features actors, a saxophone player and a significant location: the once-busy sea bathing pool at Naylor’s Cove, Bray. 

Drawing on the town’s history as a site of leisure and respite, this work positions the human body in this now-defunct site of relaxation. The actors create intimate moments of dialogue in this public space, where the script touches on ideas of therapeutic infrastructures, tourism and the body as an archive. These moments are woven through this site of failed architecture, set to a live musical score performed by a saxophone player. 

 

Curated by Anne Mullee

Kindly supported by an Arts Council of Ireland Project Award, Wicklow County Council Strategic Projects Award and Mermaid Arts Centre.

 

Lisa Freeman Biography

Lisa Freeman works across scripted performance, moving image, text and installation. She investigates content from archival material, mainstream media and local knowledge to explore representation and precarious economies of labour. Through employing intimacy as a form of resistance, she aims to reveal social anxieties along with deeper economic and power structures.

Freeman was awarded a Project Studio Award at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin (2022/23), an Arts Council of Ireland Project Award (2022), Bursaries from the Arts Council (2022, 2020) and Wicklow County Council, (2021/22).
