WOMB: First Fortnight Europe

Date posted: 8 December 2018

Image shown: WOMB by Outlandish Theatre Platform

Outlandish Theatre Platform in partnership with First Fortnight 2019 and Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital present WOMB, a parallel perspective on woman and society created and performed with community participants and professional performers. WOMB is taking place at the Dance Studio, Samuel Beckett Centre from 14-19 January, with a series of free workshops on select dates.

“Woman in form has always been the same. Woman’s welfare has been dictated by the regime that she lives in.”

We will be transported to the dystopian world of Dublin 100 years from now. Home sharing has become the mandate; democratic dictators rule and technological advancements impact on the physical and mental health of woman and healthcare providers.

WOMB is taking place as part of the European Mental Health Art & Culture Festival hosted by First Fortnight.
