The Limerick Lady Podcast

Jul 14, 2021

Emma and Ann speak to Jenny McDonald, theatremaker and facilitator originally from Toronto, Canada now based in Dublin.

Pandemics and performances haven't really gone together and the industry has been left adrift, so Jenny explains how she and a group of women chose to build their own boat - as such.

She is the creator and director of SoloSIRENs, a Tallaght based collective of emerging and established theatre artists amplifying women's voices onstage and beyond. 

SoloSIRENs recently produced Cessair, a performance and installation at the Civic, that used the Irish myth of Cessair as a container for stories of 100 women collected around Ireland and the world.
