Caoimhe Mader McGuinness
Caoimhe Mader McGuinness is a researcher at the Drama Department of Queen Mary University. Her research project focuses on 'antisocial' queer theory, Marxism and Frankfurt School theorists, particularly with regards to how these might relate to liberal narratives of inclusion within the theatrical space. She is interested in critiquing liberal conceptions of the politics of theatre in contemporary London and performances and events that might destabilise such conceptions. In Sound Acts she presented a lecture on the celebratory anti-social potential of DIY queer punk; focusing on FAGGOT, a lo-fi queer duo whose (non)musical, artistic and narrative qualities make for a dynamic imagining of a radical queer life.
