  • Kellie Hughes


Director Kellie Hughes reflects on her collaboration with Olwen Fouéré on the staging of Riverrun, Fouéré’s adaptation of the voice of the river Life/Liffey in James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. First performed in 2013 at the Galway International Arts Festival, Riverrun has now toured three continents to wide critical acclaim.
