Under the patronage of the Irish Representation of Ireland to the Council of Europe, Tagora presents, in English, She was wearing and The dog it was that died.
She was wearing: Originally commissioned as part of Amnesty International's "Stop Volence Against Women" campaign in 2005, this series of interconnected monologues draws inspiration from different garments. Seven individuals tell us about their intimate experiences; each character has their own story, sometimes violent, angry, thoughtful, sad ...
The dog it was that died: A spy tries to kill himself by jumping off a bridge; he escapes with injuries but in his fall he kills a dog. The piece evokes the world of John Le Carré of course, but reviewed and corrected by Ionesco. Lessons learned? Certainly, but after all it's only a run over dog story, isn't it?
