Mapping responses to exclusion: digital storytelling as a research methodology in collaborative theatre research practice

Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentation

Abstract

The Lyrical Bodies project at SETU in Ireland considers the oppression of Deaf women in Ireland, and their resistance to the usurping of power, status and human rights, through a never-before performed ballet by deafened Waterford playwright Teresa Deevy.

During 2022 and 2023, performance artist Amanda Coogan and Dublin Theatre of the Deaf theatre makers, Lianne Quigley and Alvean Jones joined South East Technological University researchers and students to workshop, and perform excerpts from this ballet. The script comprises only three pages, yet explores feminist themes, the historical context of partition, and commentary on the ever-present reality of war.

One non-traditional research output (NTRO) will be a series of six digital stories that employ photo and video footage to form a storymap that documents the collaboration at geographical points of interest in Waterford and Dublin. This paper will introduce and discuss the first digital story, which will also be screened.
