Growler is Dee Mulrooney’s alter-ego, performance piece. She is an 82-year-old drum banging, shamanic alchemist, who transmutes women’s pain through storytelling, song and spoken word. She has a tongue like a lash and a heart of gold. You can check out her daily shenanigens @growlerspeaks on Instagram.
Dee Mulrooney is an emerging Irish artist, living and working in Berlin.
Raised working-class in a small nation dominated by Catholicism and men, she now lives as a teacher, a mother, and an artist discovering the joy of playing with taboos and visions of female identity that would until all to recently have seen her locked away.
Her projects span visual art, film, storytelling and theatre.
Her influences are a long list—basically any woman who ever did a damned thing worth doing.
“My art has become a home of sorts, a shelter, a place where I can truly express all the facets of my experience as a human, a woman walking this earth at this crucial time in our existence. Art is my medicine.”
