'Cassandra: fragments of a playscript'.
A film by Olwen Fouéré and Kevin Abosch
written by Anne Enright
Performed by Olwen Fouéré and featuring Alice Maher
Camera, sound and editing by Kevin Abosch
Twenty five years ago, Anne Enright wrote the beginnings of a playscript about the figure of Cassandra for the actor Olwen Fouéré.
The text re-emerged in the catalogue of Alice Maher's mid-career retrospective"Becoming" and ignited Alice Maher's creation of her most recent work "Cassandra's necklace".
Alongside this project, Olwen Fouéré, having collaborated with Alice Maher at an early stage of "Cassandra's necklace", embarks on her own exploration of Enright's text.
Co-directed by Kevin Abosch, the film is shot in the disused medical and forensic laboratories of the former University College Dublin at Earlsfort Terrace, in the upper floors above the site of Allice Maher's exhibition "Becoming".
