Karen Till interviews Anu and CoisCéim about These Rooms for Bodies Politic

As part of Bodies Politic, the first of The Casement Project‘s public activities in 2016, I invited academics to have conversations with artists whose work in the context of commemoration had something to communicate about bodies in Ireland. One of the conversations was between Prof. Karen Till, from the Geography department in Maynooth University (and a champion of valuable exchanges between Art and Geography) and the makers of These Rooms, another of the ART:2016 projects. ANU and CoisCéim came together to make the immersive live performance that explored ‘the 1916 rebellion through the eyes of civilians at the moment when the rising invaded their homes in North King Street with devastating consequences.’

Here’s the conversation between Karen, Anu Productions’ and CoisCéim Dance Theatre’s artistic directors, David Bolger, Owen Boss and Louise Lowe,
