Description

Connect and share for one night only in the Recovery Room

"The shame, loneliness and stigma which comes from being forced to leave your country at a deeply vulnerable time is something many of us need to recover from. My hope is that those of us who have shared the experience of leaving Ireland to access abortion will connect and reflect on our individual journeys in confidence. Each of our stories is different, but we share a common bond in the way we were neglected by the place we call home at a time when we needed it most. It will be my pleasure to welcome you to an evening in The Recovery Room"

- Róisín Ingle, The Irish Times

Recovery Room is a part of NOT AT HOME - a durational art campaign by Emma Fraser (Nine Crows) & Grace Dyas (THEATREclub) to make visible the experiences of women who travel abroad to access safe abortion services, to highlight the consequences of Ireland's abortion laws, and to bring women who have travelled together in solidarity.

Recovery Room offers an exclusive first look at NOT AT HOME before the installation opens to the public. We invite women who travelled to come, share and reflect. The experience will be facilitated by The Irish Times journalist and accomplished author, Róisín Ingle.

Since April 2016, we have been collecting anonymous testimonies from women online notathomeireland.com. We now have a crowd-sourced text of these women’s experiences of travelling abroad. In June 2017, we visited BPAS Merseyside in Liverpool.

From these texts and our experience of recreating this journey, we will create a durational art work featuring video, sound installation and live performance. We want to create a waiting room. This is the waiting room where Irish citizens wait for this issue to be resolved. The audience will have autonomy in how they navigate the space. It’s quiet. It’s calm. It’s reflective.

NOT AT HOME will be presented in the National College of Art and Design as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2017 and will be open to the public:

September 14-15 Thursday & Friday, 5pm - 9pm
September 16-17 Saturday & Sunday, 12pm - 6pm​
