Building on our hugely successful ‘Watch Over Us’ theatre production as part of Brigid 1500 earlier this year, Griese Youth Theatre will now look at creating an archive of what our young people feel binds and connects them to each other and the world around them.
In a world where we can feel isolated while surrounded by others, or in a virtual room full of people online, we will ask who our perceived protectors are? St Brigid? Pagan Brigid? Harry Styles? The GAA? St Anthony?
Over the course of 10 weeks, our younger Youth Theatre members aged 11-14 will workshop these ideas with an aim to create a spoken word piece which will be filmed and shown as part of the groups summer theatre showcase in the Riverbank Arts Centre. This screening will take place on Saturday June 29th 2024.
During this 10 week course, the group will work closely with a theatre director, Dee Burke and writer, Eric O’ Brien. Both of whom were artists on ‘Watch over Us’ earlier this year. (Image attached from Watch Over Us, Bramble archway installation by Judy Lawler)
