Welcome to the Forty Foot a one woman show by NIAMH MCCANN

What do you get if you throw yourself into the Irish Sea 365 days of the year? Famous as a 'men-only bathing area' before being radically reclaimed in the 1970′s by a group of nudist plunging women and as the site of the Martello tower (James Joyce's residence and opening to Ulysses), the forty foot has had its fair share of stories told.

Join Niamh McCann as she unearths the compulsion and joy found both in her own personal journey as a ritual swimmer and the voices of the many other women who bathe there. This performance investigates the effect of the daily dive and how it can lead us to staying afloat on dry land.
