Sinéad performed as part of Graeme Miller’s production, On Air, a live broadcast work staged between an aerial vantage point and audience at ground level in St Botolphe’s without Aldgate church in London. The landscape is translated into words by a team of commentators and relayed to the remote audience — an act of faith between listeners and speakers.
The performance was on 20 July 2019 as part of Nocturnal Creatures festival at Whitechapel Gallery, London.

In this event, Sinéad celebrates the launch of her new book, Michael Chekhov’s Acting Technique: A Practitioner’s Guide, published by Bloomsbury Methuen.
The book provides a complete overview of the whole method, and includes illuminating explanations of its principles, as well as a wide range of practical exercises that illustrate, step by step, how they can be applied to dramatic texts. Drawing on the full range of Chekhov’s writing in English and French, it also examines unpublished material from the Dartington Hall archives and features interviews with actors who have worked with the technique, including Simon Callow and Joanna Merlin.
The evening will include short a presentation from Sinéad as well as from actors Gretchen Egolf and Robert Bowman, and will be followed by a drinks reception.
