Zoe Ní Riordáin

Zoe Ní Riordáin came to Backstage as an Activate Resident in 2020 to develop a new music/theatre piece titled How Do We Get Through This? Inspired by recent global events and their impact on interpersonal relationships, Zoe sought to develop a new story centred on a couple in rural Ireland considering divorce.

Zoe’s residency afforded her the time and space in which to craft a unique musical show that explores the difficulties experienced by everyday people during lockdown, particularly the months of enforced proximity to family.
