Hallelujah! & April Fools Day
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.
Veronica will also work with Draíocht's resident D15 Youth Theatre on a performance project for film entitled ‘Fifteen Portraits’. ‘Fifteen Portraits’ will be written and performed by the young people and will present a snapshot of life for a fifteen year old in Dublin 15.
And in keeping with Draíocht's commitment to excellent theatre for young audiences Veronica will embark on developing a red nose version of Shakespeare's Macbeth to be called ‘Fools' Macbeth’ for 10-12 year olds.
