Volition 2014 #6: The Contender

14 May

From now until the Volition performance event on Saturday 17th May we will feature regular pieces about each of the works in progress you will see on the night. These are presented in no particular order so embrace the randomness.


‘The Contender is a collaboration between myself (an actress) and my grandfather Paddy O’Grady (a civil servant with a secret life as a writer). In the months before he died he recorded himself on cassette tape, leaving behind 15 hours of material that includes stories, musings, politics, songs and fantasies. This show celebrates a forgotten somebody, finally helping him make his mark and reminding us that one day we will all be forgotten.’


Volition artist: Emma O’Grady
