Trigger is derived from the artist's experiences working in public environments. Over the past 5 months Sinéad has been experimenting with different creative approaches and processes, developing rich layers of thought channelled into actions that come together in this newly formed live performance.  

Trigger is new work developed by Sinéad O’Donnell and was commissioned by the University of Atypical.  This work has been supported by the Stability and Renewal Fund from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

Sinéad O’Donnell is one of north of Ireland’s foremost performance artists, with an international profile through numerous residencies and performances both nationally and internationally. Her work explores identity, borders, and barriers through encounters with territory and the territorial. She sets up actions or situations that demonstrate complexities, contradictions, or commonality between medium and discipline, timing and spontaneity, intuition and methodology, artist, and audience. She uses photography and video and to record her performances. She often uses her body to investigate both her own and cultural boundaries, particularly in relation to the restrictions placed on women. Despite deliberately avoiding the sensationalisation of the body, her works often promote strong reactions and emotions.
