Invitation to join community theatre project, Co. Monaghan

DECLAN GORMAN:

THEATRE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAMME

Co. Monaghan 2018-2019

Hosted by Garage Theatre Monaghan and Íontas Arts Centre Castleblayney

 

YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED IN A COMMUNITY THEATRE PROJECT – OPEN TO ALL!!!

Adults (15 and over) in Co. Monaghan are invited to join ID/NOW, a community theatre project at the Garage or at Íontas, depending on where you live.

There will be a course of five weekly taster workshops in each town, beginning the week of April 15th and taking us up to the beginning of June.

Our task will be to explore what it means to live in Co Monaghan now in 2019; in a time of change and uncertainty.

Our exploration will not take the form of big political research, however.  It will take the form of drama exercises and improvisations; some creative writing aspects for those interested – in short, fun learning and just being together to see how we get on – the human story behind the big politics

It is open to all persons over 15 – regardless of past drama experience, first language, creed, colour, age, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.  It will be a place of respect, listening and also the best of craic.  At the end of five weeks we will have figured out what a play or performance about modern Monaghan might entail, and then we may reconvene after the Summer, in September, and begin collectively writing and rehearsing a play in each town that will be staged during the following 12 months.

If you are interested in taking part or would like to find out more, please e-mail me declangorman@yahoo.co.uk and I will immediately get back to you by phone or e-mail.  At present we are talking about Monday nights in the Garage (but not Bank Holidays!) and Thursdays at Íontas – but this will be confirmed fully next week.

Supported by The Arts Council and Monaghan County Council
