Example text

The performance did not end for me (in terms of memories and feelings). It very much continued but I was ejected from it at the moment when I became most implicated in the performed world. ’19 And as I left the area with the shapes of sensations that evoked the illicit trades of The Monto over generations, I carried with me on my hands the smell of methylated spirit as a conduit to remember the feelings I experienced that contributed to the gestures to memory and history of a community now very much present in my mind.

Then I was ushered into a room in which several women were bringing buckets of milky-white water in and out. I was given a bucket of water to carry in. This I did and I discovered I was now in a bathroom. There was a ceramic bath in the middle of the floor. At one end of the room was a woman, who looked like a guard sitting on a high chair watching me and at the other, another woman (played by Sorcha Kenny) who began to take off her only clothing that was a bandage around her breasts (as I learned later from the director, many of the women incarcerated in the laundries suffered from mastitis).

Who was this woman? I did not know. She did not have a name. She did not even speak. But in my mind I attached possible names to her: she was Alison Brady, Bridget Brady, Cecilia Anne Brady, Mary Brady. As I held a bucket of milky white water, I, too became part of the community of the incarcerated. I was in a performative situation, or ‘transferential space’11 in which I was awakened into ‘anamnestic solidarity’ with this and all subsequent women I was to encounter, affording me the possibility of political engagement.
