Lorna Tucker’s debut film is an intimate and poignant homage to one of the true cultural icons of our time, as she fights to maintain her brand’s integrity, her principles, and her legacy in a business driven by consumerism, profit, and global expansion.

16th July Virtue out of Necessity: Aesthetic Accessibility and Sustainable Theatre. Theatre-making can be very exclusionary to disabled people. Raised stages without ramp access, small-print wordy scripts, long hours of physically demanding work… But it doesn’t have to be. Donal O’Kelly and Isolde Ó Brolcháin Carmody have collaborated from 2014 to create theatre that worked for them. During the process, they developed techniques that arose from Isolde’s specific access needs, but became integral aesthetic elements to the final piece. By embracing the need to do things differently, they wound up innovating form and presentation of theatre.
