My name is Evelyn O’Malley and I’m an Irish researcher and performance-maker, working in the department of Drama at the University of Exeter. I’m interested in how theatre and performance interact with climate, weather and nature. For the Taking the Ferry project, I am making an audio recording of spoken extracts from newspaper clippings about bad weather, weather reports, ferry cancellations and ships logs to raise awareness about women’s reproductive rights in Ireland.
