Shapes of a Dancer Is a collaborative multi media installation with live performance by Frances Mezzetti and Joyce Garvey.
It comments on Lucia Joyce, who lived under the shadow of her genius father and her search for her identity as an artist in her own right.
November is Samháin time, when nature seeds itself, cocooned, apparently, dormant yet drawing strength to re-emerge.
