The International Bar, 23 Wicklow St, Dublin 2
Free admission, all welcome.
As part of the exhibition My Brilliant Friend at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Laugh a Defiance Episode 2 will be staged at The International Bar and will star Mason Leaver Yap and Vaari Claffey on vocals, Miriam O’Connor and Jesse Jones on scenography and Sarah Grimes on Drums.
Laugh a Defiance is a project by Vaari Claffey and Mason Leaver Yap which emerged from the programme of NO MORE FUN AND GAMES, Feminist Parasite Institution by Jesse Jones. It is a performative and amorphous collaborative project that seeks to explore the power of laughter as a feminist action. Laughter is both euphoric and absurd and has the possibility to mobilize embodied subjective experience, to activate agency through collective howls, to disrupt with the everyday with the ecstatic.
