Lewis Barfoot


MOTHER IRELAND: Drawing on her dual heritage Lewis is developing a new performance piece with music, film and song, which seeks to give voice to the silenced feminine in her lineage in Ireland. She was Artist in Residence at Greywood Arts in Killeagh, Cork in 2018 doing the first stage of R&D. Where she spend two weeks developing the idea, writing new songs, gathering footage and meeting family for the first time. The second week of R&D ended with a great concert where Lewis was accompanied by local musicians Jeroen Blancke and Rose Harrington. She is deeply grateful for the time, space and support she received from Jessica at Greywood. She is now living in Cork and will continue to develop the work.
