An evening with Sinéad Rushe
‘Sinéad Rushe is infectiously watchable. She catches you off-guard, shifting dramatic gear with the ease of a bird changing direction mid-flight.’ Time Out
BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE, LONDON, JUNE 2003.
Short-listed for BAC/Your Imagination This Way Up tour.
An intimate exploration of character, artifice and sincerity, involving self-surveillance, webcams, and the playful manipulation of autobiographical conventions in theatre.
Our time makes a spectacle of intimacy. We put the intimate on show. In a world that feeds on reality television and public-private confessionals, everyone agrees that in order to see the intimate it is enough just to glance at it. It hides just behind the door. What could be simpler? You have only to open the door and take a look.
