Blue! (Dublin City Council)
An interactive adventure, developed by theatre artist Anna Newell, that involves two performers utilising the Imagination Playground that organically develops into an interactive session that children aged between 18 months and 4 years can participate in. Laying the groundwork for imaginative expression and theatre, this project toured various libraries across Dublin.
Better Together (Louth County Council)
Theatre is a welcoming and inclusive artform and no project better defines this than Better Together, a short piece of movement drama on the universal theme of friendship. Created by Ablevision who work with adults with intellectual disabilities through the arts, the project was a labour of love and after a series of collaborative workshops, was performed at Droichead Arts Centre in Drogheda.
Down at Heel (Kildare County Council)
Theatre isn’t just restricted to a wooden stage, it’s versatile, movable and often portable. The incredibly ambitious Down at Heel project, led by writer Martina O’Reilly, takes on a mammoth 48 site-specific theatre pieces, all telling the story of a fictional Maynooth Family and set in the years 1920-23. The plays explore what the War of Independence and Civil War would have been like for an ordinary family living in extraordinary times.
