“a brave, provocative and deeply sensual experimental piece" Film Ireland on Medicated Milk 

The work will examine Lucia's life between 1915-1950, and explore choreographically;

• Lucia’s time as a professional dance artist.

• Her romantic relationships, including her short romance with writer Samuel Beckett.

• The circumstances surrounding her incarceration by her brother.

• Her time under threat in an occupied zone at a psychiatric hospital during World War 2, shortly before her father’s death.

In addition to her work with ADI, Áine has been funded by the Arts Council of Ireland to develop her choreographic research into a feature-length film about Lucia. This follow-up to Medicated Milk will premiere in late 2018.
