Deargdhúil: Anatomy of Passion explores the life, work and sensual poetic imagination of Máire Mhac an tSaoi, a revolutionary Irish poet. Mhac an tSaoi explores themes of love, sacrifice, sexual awakening, betrayal, the joy of motherhood, old age, and the death of loved ones – set against the backdrop of a tumultous century in Irish history, in which she and her family were centrally involved. Featuring performance artist Maureen Fleming, Louis de Paor, Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and Olwen Fouéré.

Director Paula Kehoe will attend.
