A Bit Of Culture

January 21, 2010
I believe that art and culture are the heart and soul of fashion. We wouldn’t be so inspired by fashion if we didn’t attribute layers of meanings to it which are taken from the world of art. Whenever I feel burnt out, whenever clothes stop being anything else that rags, I try to do something inspiring, such as reading a good book, see an art exhibition, or watch a stage play.
I just got the word from a friend about a new play. Written by the young Irish writer, Owen Ryan, it is not mainstream entertainment, so I don’t know what to expect. But isn’t it the greatest thrill of it all – to take the risk and see what happens? Who knows, we might discover a talent… 

"Bad Faith"


Zagmar Theatre Company presents:
A New Play by O. J. Ryan 

 “There’s this void you can’t fill… You try and fill it with booze and drugs but there’s always a void”

What epitaph can tell a person’s story? What are we without belief? Bad Faith explores the deep psychological triggers that fashioned a young man’s life. The small-town that formed him, the father he rejected, the psychologist that changed his life… and the reasons he abandoned home, family and faith for a life on a Dutch building site. Returning after 20 years, the adult Gerard makes a series of painful discoveries on his road to redemption.
Directed by Noel McCarthy
Written by O. J. Ryan

    Oooh I like the sound of this play – I love stories/films/plays etc. which focus on the darker sides of life. I agree with you, it is really fascinating to see how different aspects of art and culture have shaped fashion into what it is today. It’s also interesting to see how fashion repeats itself, as though we never really lose our admiration for history and its beauty.
