A female rebellion creates new Easter Rising cabaret
EASTROGEN Rising: A Rebel Cabaret is a show about women, known and unknown who were present, awed, inspired or actively participated in the Easter Rising 1916.
The informative, poignant and comical cabaret show was made in response to Dublin Abbey Theatre's 1916 Centenary programme, which had only one show written by a woman.
Sixteen artists were involved in the making of this original work which includes songs, poetry, spoken word, theatre pieces, video and recorded soundscapes to celebrate a range of women from Constance Markievicz to the messenger girls, the looters and the widows of the executed men.
:: Eastrogen Rising is showing at the Roddy McCorley Social Club, Glen Road, Belfast as part of Féile an Phobail. Traditional music session from 7.30pm followed by show at 8.30pm. For further information and tickets visit www.feilebelfast.com or telephone 028 9030 0480.
