ANU Productions, Ireland
Vardo | Oonagh Young Gallery | Sept 23 – Oct 12
Vardo is the final part of ANU Productions’ multi award-winning Monto Cycle (World’s End Lane, Laundry and The Boys of Foley Street), which spans the last one hundred years of history in Dublin.
Operating 24 hours a day and barely hidden beneath the city’s surface, an army of undocumented workers fuel a thriving invisible economy. They are transient, they are temporary, they are traffic. Real names and identities are hidden and what we see is not necessarily what we get.
A boundary-pushing, site-specific work, Vardo will take audiences on a stimulating and intimate journey to explore first-hand the present day underworld of Dublin’s north inner city.
