Wrongheaded brings together the fearless spoken word poetry of Elaine Feeney, the exquisite work of both film director Mary Wycherley and lighting designer Stephen Dodd and electrifying performances by dancers Sarah Cerneaux and Justine Cooper. All are gathered together in this intense mix of emotions and physicality to highlight the desperation and frustration that many Irish women feel today when it comes to the choices available to them regarding their bodies.

Liz Roche Company has been presenting evocative and compelling contemporary dance on Irish and International stages for over 15 years. Unanimously appreciated for its physicality, poetic strength and the cleverness of its intuitive collaborations with other art-forms, the company has become a leading light in the development of contemporary dance in Ireland.
