In an attic, in a house, with only letters for company, a woman takes a precarious step into the vibrancy of her imagination. Exploring intimacy between Him and Her, connected by words on a page and interspersed with moments of tenderness and humour. Thirteen Steps to the Attic evokes the ephemeral nature of the past and memory, exploring the known, the unknown, and the invisible desire that was unquestionably real.
Versatile performer Michelle Cahill presents her first solo work; a multi layered montage of movement and text performed with a live sound-score and recorded tracks from the eclectic band Thieves of Silence.
Based on a true story.
Thirteen Steps to the Attic had its premiere at Firkin Crane Cork and a successful run at Galway Theatre Festival 2018.
