If those liquid murmurs got so loud that they bubbled to the surface, could we handle it? ‘White Wash’ examines the inaccuracies of female history, surrenders it, airs it so we can take care of it. Expect stellar performances by Carol O’Connor & Ryan Lucey and beautiful visuals by Stephen O’Donoghue and Gary Cahillane. Jade is an award winning Dublin based performer, theatre maker and director of Femme Bizarre Theatre Company. Her work is made through a feminist and socio-political lens. “The basic premise in this world is that our mental cultural template for a POWERFUL PERSON is resolutely male”. Have we allowed ourselves to be white washed? This show is fully loaded with high energy dance, original song, spoken word, sound design and an incredible set design of visuals.
