Thirteen Steps to the Attic


Firkin Crane, Cork
Friday March 16


In an attic, in a house, with only letters for company, a woman is led by a man to take a precarious step into the vibrancy of her imagination. Exploring intimacy between Him and Her, connected by words on a page and interspersed with moments of tenderness and humour, Thirteen Steps to the Attic examines the known, the unknown, the invisible desire that was unquestionably real…in the Attic. Energetic, highly versatile performer Michelle Cahill presents her first solo work; a multi layered montage of movement and text performed with a live sound-score and recorded tracks from the eclectic band Thieves of Silence.

I breathe in
I hold my breath
Wait for the silences…

Thirteen Steps to the Attic is a collaboration with Yorkshire based director Rowan Tolley.
