Mad, Bad & Dangerous Series Two Premieres at Bealtaine Festival
Two new episodes from the long-awaited Series 2 will screen online at Bealtaine Festival 2022. Mad, Bad and Dangerous, created by theatre artist Emma O’Grady, is a documentary series of interviews between influential women over 70. With the pandemic, the relationship that intersects age, gender and public space has never been so fraught. The need to see, hear and prioritise older people has been rendered explicitly visible. These women have been blazing trails for 50 years. They were moving mountains long before hashtags. They are the ‘difficult’ women, the brass necks, the sharp, the fearless: the mad, the bad and the dangerous. MBD was originally recorded in Aug/Sept 2020 and screened for free online as part of Dublin Fringe Festival and Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival AT HOME Sept & Oct 2020. In 2022, with support from the Irish Research Council the makers will screen two brand new episodes for free online for Bealtaine Festival 2022.
