Collapsing Horse - Draíocht’s New Theatre Artists in Residence 2015/2016

September 28, 2015

Our 3 year Hallelujah! Clown Choir Project with Veronica Coburn ends with a bang in October with their final production, Ship of Fools and we are delighted to be welcoming our new Theatre Artists in Residence to Draíocht, Collapsing Horse ...



‘We’re Collapsing Horse, we’re a young theatre company from Dublin and we’ll be the new Theatre Artists in Residence in Draíocht 2015/2016. From January 2016 we’ll be working with D15 Youth Theatre, sharing our skills in puppetry and using theatrical illusion to bring ordinary objects to life. We will also be utilizing Draíocht’s Studio and technical facilities to develop a new play called Conor, about a child who journeys up to the sky. We use projections, animated backgrounds and live puppetry to create the experience of seeing the scale of the universe for the first time. We’ve had a great relationship with Draíocht since they presented our first show, Monster/Clock in 2013. We were back again in March 2015 with our creepy fairytale Human Child. We’re thrilled to be supported by Draíocht, Fingal County Council and the Arts Council to be making new work while engaging with Draíocht’s young audience.’

Hallelujah! Draíocht’s Community Clown Choir
With Veronica Coburn – Theatre Artist in Residence 2012/2013

As part of Veronica Coburn's Residency in Draíocht, a year long programme of work, Hallelujah! Draíocht's Community Clown Choir commenced on Monday 18 February. Weekly meetings will develop both clown and choral skills and Hallelujah's! first performance will be on Easter Monday, appropriately April Fools Day, in The Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. Their second piece of work ‘The M50 Symphony - A Symphony for Human Voice & Car Horn’, will be performed in early July.
