MAKE: Theatre Forum Ireland: 22-29 March 2009
MAKE is a collaborative initiative by Dublin Fringe Festival, Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum, committed to the generation of new performance work. It will take the form of a residential laboratory open to Irish and international artists, whereby ideas for new performance works will be developed with the assistance of renowned international theatre artists Florian Malzacher, Richard Gregory and Gerardo Naumann. Over the course of one week, 15 practitioners will come together at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annnaghmakerrig. Their purpose there will have an expressed emphasis on creating new work with assistance, mentoring and support, rather than learning specific skills or techniques. The week long laboratory will culminate in a short showing of the work they have developed over the course of the week. The emphasis of this workshop will be on the generation of new performance work outside of the traditional writer-led model. Click here for more information about the program and how to apply.
