Description

in:Action — Irish Live Art Review contains reflections and responses to live art created by Irish and Irish-based artists. I have written Our Story of Resistance, A Response to "A Rose by any Other Name" by Spoken Word Artist Vickey Curtis at the Dublin Live Art Festival 2016. Vickey Curtis is a spoken word artist. Her performance A Rose By Any Other Name spoke the language of street harassment in the course of a walk from the Spire to Rathmines. Writing down words of violation on her white t-shirt, Curtis publically proclaimed the abuse of others. Her actions were matter-of-fact, her words true-to-life, and her purposeful gait acknowledged lives affected by the interference of strangers.
