An exciting selection of poetry and live art works in development from some our favourite trans artists in Ireland.  With short work from Aidan Wall, Rainbow Fadeyi, Ollie Bell, and Kate Kiernan, come experience new thoughts and fresh perspectives from Ireland’s emerging trans art scene.

Aidan Wall is a writer, musician, game designer and artist based between Dublin and Amsterdam. Their research revolves around the potential of games as experiences which can make transparent or reflect systems of governance under neoliberal capitalism. The output of this research takes the form of essays, fiction, publications, performances and tabletop games. The Deathsinger Prepares Her Song is a rumination on friendship in digital worlds, and death in digital communities. This performance drenches itself in the tension between the guilt of long play sessions and the meaningfulness of forming new friendships in these intricate game spaces.

Ollie Bell is a theatre maker and 3rd year drama and theatre student in Trinity College. They have performed in Me Too Monologues (Trinity College) and Big Love (Samuel Beckett Theatre). They have performed spoken word at QueerStock (The Complex) and Outspoken  (Players Theatre). Other credits include: The County Wife (Sound), All My Sons (Sound), House By The Sea (Crew), God’s Ear (Crew) and The Believers  (Props).

Kate Kiernan is a writer living and working in Dublin, her work explores death, time, and UFOs.

This work is part of TLAS@LCIF, a strand of programming presented in collaboration with Trans Live Art Salon
