Moloney is a video installation of a script-based dance work about Margaret Moloney (1868-1952). From Co. Limerick, Moloney was Glin’s final harbour master and the only known woman in that role. In this work, “Barbara” (Angie Smalis) considers Ms. Moloney’s responsibilities - the management of maritime traffic - and the challenges of being a woman in a position of power. Moloney offers her a new perspective on history, nature, and power, and consequently, a new way to imagine negotiation.
