When I think about it, what it feels like, it’s like I’ve been splattered in mud.
GL RY was a creative response to the gaping hole in representation around HIV in Northern Ireland. The medical crisis is over, but stigma and misinformation produce a different health crisis. Rather than staying inside the theatre, performance collective TheatreofplucK took this work out into public space and attempted to entice the audience through a hole and to transform thinking about what it actually means to live with HIV here today. Driven by conversations with people living with HIV in NI, the work responded through a collection of sound works and installations, culminating in a Sunday Afternoon Tea Dance.
The creative team includes Matthew Cavan, Ross Anderson-Doherty, Lachlan Philpott and guests,
led by creative director Alyson Campbell.
