Selkie

  • The Blue Room Theatre (map)

SELKIE /ˈsɛlki/ noun
A creature of Gaelic mythology that exists as a seal in water, and can shed their sealskin to assume human form on land.

Life on dry ground is not well suited to a Selkie. Rónnad feels the magnetic pull of the moon and the tide, calling her home. Drying out, she is helpless and held captive in a body and a world which is not her own.

The Epic’s Finn O’Branagáin provokes in her exploration of this mythological ‘other’ who is lost in a relationship where she is both owned and prized, her identity repressed in an attempt at assimilation.

Directed by Joe Lui (Letters Home, The Tribe), Renegade Productions' Selkie takes you for a swim into a whirlpool of love, cultural exploitation, and domestic oppression.
