ANNOUNCED: A Mother’s Voice by Musici Ireland
Earlier this year, Beth McNinch was announced as the recipient of Triskel’s WRITE RECORD PERFORM Artist Residency for 2022. The project Beth will present as part of her residency is one she has been working on for over two years and Triskel is honoured to play a part in bringing it to its world premiere performance.
A Mother’s Voice is a commemorative dedication to the many women affected by the mother and baby homes in Ireland during the 1900s. It is a multidisciplinary production in honour of these women, a collaboration between artists and living survivors to shed light on this veiled era of Ireland’s recent history. The production will culminate in an immersive walk through exhibit by Bridget Ní Dhuinn, with lighting by Eoin McNinch and showcase a performance of the newly commissioned work by Cork composers Linda Buckley and Irene Buckley with animation by Éabha Bartolozzo and Jack Kirwan. The piece also features the voices of three mothers.
