Escaped from the sterile cocoon where she has spent many years CLODAGH CORONA sets foot back in the ‘cosmopolis’ she once called home.
Like an alien in a new world she strives to find her bearings, awakening in her memories of a childhood infamous for that day she spent ‘back the tide’.
A story she wants the world to know. For it is a story of ‘love.’
Performed by Judith Ryan
