Wrongheaded: Liz Roche Company

"The women are here to count,

To sit together and carve out arms.

To bury their dead, to feed their living,

When they are done they can

Dance in the end clutches of their spat energy,

Bone of bone’s, sharp cuckoo barrage.

Sweet desire,

All spent."

 "[Roche's] choreography is sharp and expressive, thrashing us with the narrative and revealing the savage beauty at its heart"...... "the fierce and feisty spoken words of Galway poet Elaine Feeney; a fire-cracker delivery of vicious text that has emerged from the so many dark, heart breaking and sickening examples of women subjugated through their bodies" Review by Mike Smith Art Scene in Wales

In Wrongheaded, Liz Roche brings together the fearless spoken word poetry of Elaine Feeney, the exquisite work film director Mary Wycherley and electrifying performances by dancers Sarah Cerneaux and Justine Cooper. All are gathered together in this intense mix of emotions and physicality to highlight the desperation and frustration that many Irish women feel today when it comes to the choices available to them regarding their bodies.
