Water Street Studios’ Live Art Series presents: “Daughters of Ire” written and  performed by Savanna Rae.

The Live Art Series is a monthly live art performance exploring a variety of art forms including music, film, dance, storytelling, and more!

The Live Art Series event is hosted in the Dempsey Family Gallery at Water Street Studios. The Live Art Series is made possible by a grant from the Batavia Arts Council. The Daughters of Ire is a one-woman show written and performed by Savanna Rae from The Other Theatre Co. Wesley James writes, “The play is rapid, engaging, and bold. Daughters has the power to affect change - and seeing it is an experience filled with so much heart and passion that it truly could guide the next several thousand years in a brighter direction. See it early, and see it soon - as you will surely want to see it again.”

Justin Hayford writes, “ [Savanna Rae] pulls sagas from Ireland’s medieval-era Ulster Cycle that mostly focus on headstrong, militant women…. to cunningly illustrate our culture’s prurient fascination with stories of women and violence—so long as women remain victims. Rae, herself a headstrong presence, reworks the stories’ corrupted, excised details, turning female victims into progressive agents. The 75-minute piece vacillates between bold poetic vision and cursory graduate thesis, and often Rae is so eager to make points she leaves her audience little room for discovery. But she's a mesmerizing dynamo with the kind of feminist passion sorely lacking from local stages.”
