Moloney – Tuesday 22nd – Saturday 26th March

Moloney is a video installation of a script-based dance work about Margaret Moloney (1868-1952). From Co. Limerick, Moloney was Glin’s final harbour master and the only known woman in that role.

In this work, “Barbara” (Angie Smalis) considers Ms. Moloney’s responsibilities – the management of maritime traffic – and the challenges of being a woman in a position of power. Moloney offers her a
new perspective on history, nature, and power, and consequently, a new way to imagine negotiation.

Initial development began with a 2021 Arts Council Bursary award. The touring installation was made possible under the Arts Grant Funding, 2022 and the Limerick City and County Council Strategic Award, 2022.

Concept and dramaturgy: Colin Gee

Music: Irish Chamber Orchestra with Violin: Diane Daly and Cello: Aoife Nic Athlaoich

“Moloney continues our exploration of historical and artificial perspectives through the use of storytelling techniques and place-based narrative for dance and forms the first part of the “Persuasion”
trilogy, which explores ethical dilemmas created where personal and public interests conflict”.
