Conveying the story of the past 50 years of violent political conflict on this island we felt that it is crucial to express the reality of bloodshed it entailed. We’ve decided to use an animal which was already going to be killed as a vehicle for the audience to witness the harshness of this era. We have considered all the ethical and artistic implications. We believe our actions to be appropriate in the context on this occasion. We welcome your dissent. It’s Not Over*.
*The animal, a small Muntjac deer, will be sourced from a licensed supplier with skin and fur intact. The animal will be sourced in compliance with Irish and EU legislation. Its use is in accordance with best practice.
