An original idea written and performed by the artist, writer and filmmaker, Carol Murphy, The Body & Blood is a 19th Century Irish Famine Folk Fable told in verse. It is the story of Maggie Murtagh, an Irish country girl who transmogrifies into The Vigilante Cannibal Nun during The Famine, after the death of her family. She steals from the rich to give to the starving poor. She eats the colonizers; becomes an addict; and destroys her soul on her quest to seek revenge.
The Body & Blood was launched online in January 2022 as five films at https://www.thebodyandblood.co.uk then performed live at The Black Box in Belfast. For the second performance, Carol Murphy, travels from Belfast to the Waterloo Vaults to perform her one woman show and to take you on an unruly journey from innocence to bloody violence to wild craic to the living dead.
