What A Year!
As an actor, I went on tour with Life and Love: Lesbian Style by Hilary McCollum. Under the direction of Patricia Byrne of Sole Purpose Productions, we performed at The Players Theatre, Trinity College, Dublin as part of the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival. Here I became a recipient of the Eva Gore Booth Award for Best Female Performance awarded to the Ensemble Cast.
Later that year, we performed in The Black Box, Belfast as part of Belfast Pride. And then back to The Playhouse, for Foyle Pride Festival.
I received my first SIAP award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for the writing and development of an experimental piece of performance theatre. ‘You Maiden, I Mother’ was performed with dancer Zoe Ramsey and directed by Tonya Sheina. The piece premiered at Echo Echo Dance and Theatre Company’s International Festival of Dance 7th November 2015.
