Spin, Spin, Scheherazade is a humorous and passionate monologue rooted in a form of artistic barefoot anthropology. Orla Barry directs Einat Tuchman, who explores the boundaries of art, gender, and the rural everyday. Reflecting on a culture in which the connection with nature has been broken, she describes the experiences of an artist who returns from the city to her rural roots and is reborn as a hybrid ‘farmer-artist’. Coincidence, humour and a subtle language game are the ingredients of a performance that blends oral historiography with personal memories.

• Orla Barry is both a visual artist and a shepherd. She lived in Brussels for 16 years and now runs a Lleyn sheep farm in the Irish countryside. During Performatik13, she presented Mountain at Bozar and during Performatik17, she presented Breaking Rainbows – also starring Einat Tuchman – at Argos.
