Michelle Cahill in Residence


Michelle Cahill takes up residence at Shawbrook for two weeks in November to create and preview her new solo work Thirteen Steps to the Attic.

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 unknown, the invisible desire that was unquestionably real...in the Attic.

*I breathe in,

I hold my breath,

And Wait for the silences…*

Thirteen Steps to the Attic is a collaboration with Yorkshire based director Rowan Tolley. Funded by The Arts Council Dance Project Award. Supported by Firkin Crane Production Residency, Shawbrook, Dance Ireland and Tipperary TRY! Residency
