Courageous and considered, Wrongheaded is a finely crafted dance performance. Part film, part text, part live performance, it delves into ideas and experiences around physical identity and body politics.
Venting anger, frustration and gentle hope, Elaine Feeney’s poetic text underscores the piece, with film work by Mary Wycherley.
‘The women are here to count,
To sit together and carve out arms.
To bury their dead, to feed their living,
When they are done they can
Dance in the end clutches of their spat energy,
Bone of bone’s, sharp cuckoo barrage.
