Exploring instances of disclosure and the presence of stigma in the lives of men and women who are HIV+ in Ireland today, Talking Shop Ensemble and Shaun Dunne make their Droichead Arts Centre debut with Rapids; their smash hit show that looks to playfully and respectfully make the private public.

In making this piece, the company have collaborated with several groups from the HIV+ community. From young men in rural Ireland to migrant women seeking asylum, this form-flipping piece of documentary theatre will take you through the myriad of perspectives and experiences that compound what it means to live positive in this country.

Produced in association with Project Arts Centre and funded through the Arts Council Touring Grant. This project is supported by Mermaid Arts Centre, HIV Ireland and ACT UP Dublin.

“A sophisticated and bracing piece on living with HIV in Ireland… A work as involving and compassionate as Rapids could be the beginning of an antidote” **** Irish Times
