Taking place in the heart of the city, NEST is a three-day event that will traverse through performing arts disciplines in pursuit of what exactly is the essence of being a female performance artist working in the industry today.
The festival programme includes theatrical shows, music, workshops, work in progress showings, and panel discussion, all provided by the array of amazing women around the country working in the performing arts world.
“We feel our visibility is not enough, and we want to know why!. We need to know more about how we make our work, and why,” said festival organiser, Niamh Moroney.
Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday will be jam packed with performances, workshops and installations by a host of talented artists and performers including Susie Lamb, Niamh Shaw, Zoe Uí Fhaolain, Aine Phillips, Niamh Moroney, Joanne Boyle, Eszter Nemethi, Ita Morrissey and Gillian Grattan.
