Are you there Una?
By Elaine Mears
The late Una Taaffe continues to inspire many far-fetched tales in her native Galway.
Are you there Una? is a reclamation and restoration portrait of Una. It explores collected stories, interviews, personal memorabilia, and fragments of memories of Una, as a means of peeling back the layers of myth-making and finding the real person beneath. Una’s life speaks to wider concerns of finding a sense of identity and belonging, how we read isolation, eccentricity and mental illness, and how we demystify these.
The piece incorporates live music performance from Anna Mullarkey and video design by Jennifer Cunningham.
Supported by the Arts Council, Galway City Council, Galway County Council and Galway Theatre Festival.
