I Used to Feel - Dublin Fringe Festival

An interview in Totally Dublin about I Used to Feel

Ailís was pleased to write The Time of My Life for The Irish Times about the Irish poet Brendan Kennelly.

An interview on Artbeat on Dublin City FM on 12th September 2018 in advance of I Used to Feel in Dublin

Following performances at Spitalfields Festival, London and Cork Midsummer Festival I Used to Feel comes to Dublin.

An intimate, site-specific music-theatre piece set in a hotel room that questions the essence of communication and what contributes to its breakdown. Theatre, live classical music, visual language and movement focus us on the challenges of communication.

Composed, written and directed by Ailís Ní Riaín with performers Alvean Jones and Kate Romano.

Supported by Dublin Fringe Festival & Arts & Disability Ireland
