1968 Journey 2012

22nd July 2012. Belfast, Northern Ireland. 1 hour 30 minutes
Performance for Rain event.

Walking rain-3

The curatorial theme of this performance event was “Rain”. I carried two buckets of water from my house on Antrim Rd North Belfast to 5 Exchange Place the birthplace of Catalyst Arts where I made my first performance in 1993.

The previous week Loyalist marched down Donegal St & stopped beside St Patrick’s Chapel & played sectarian tunes, exactly context. I was mindful of this, I was nervous walking the same root as Loyalist, I finished the performance at 5 Exchange place, a cleansing & healing for me. It’s now twenty years since I set out on this journey, so I’m revisiting the place where I became alive, Catalyst Arts.
