The NOT AT HOME project will first be presented as a live theatre installation at the Dublin Fringe Festival this September.

Grace Dyas and Emma Fraser present the issue of travelling abroad to access abortion services and is based on testimony gathered from women around Ireland that have had this experience .

Grace and Emma took to Liverpool where they recorded audio and video of the journey and the people they met on the way to the clinic there.

Grace Dyas speaking at the launch of the Dublin Fringe, said:

As the conversation around abortion access gets closer to a referendum next year, the divide between those on both sides continues to deepen and become more entrenched.

As that gap widens, the space for calm and thoughtful articulation of women’s lived experiences gets smaller and smaller.

We are developing NOT AT HOME as a calm, inclusive way to reclaim some of that space for the thousands of women who have travelled and will travel before the current regime is changed….

The project is continuing its appeal to women who have travelled abroad to access abortion services to submit their stories via the project’s website www.notathomeireland.com. These stories can be submitted anonymously or otherwise.
