Supported by the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Connect Scheme managed by Arts and Disability Ireland. Also supported by Dance Ireland and The James Joyce Centre. 

This new work by dancer, filmmaker and musician Áine Stapleton continues the examination of the life of Lucia Joyce begun in her earlier film Medicated Milk

Horrible Creature will focus on Lucia's life between 1915-1950, exploring her time as a professional dance artist, her romantic relationships, the circumstances surrounding her incarceration by her brother and her time under threat in an occupied zone at a psychiatric hospital during World War 2.
