Some academics have declared The Táin misogynistic in its treatment of female characters, but having spent time with them, as a storyteller, I can't agree - unless my only measure of women is to characterise them as whores or virgins. To me, these women and goddesses are sexually bold, potent, complex and vivid.  Niki na Meadhra

Niki is a highly experienced performer. Her family connections tie her to Ireland and she loves its mythologies, and communicates its mythology and cosmology with infectious joy.
