Artistic Collaborations Apr-Aug 2018

March 29, 2018

Included in Draíocht’s New 5 Year Strategy 2018-2022, is our commitment to building strong and effective collaborative partnerships, supporting artists to develop their practice and work.

Draíocht & Fishamble: The New Play Company
A PLAY FOR IRELAND

Draíocht is delighted to be collaborating with Fishamble: The New Play Company and 5 other venues across the island of Ireland on ‘A PLAY FOR IRELAND’ (2017-2019), a major new playwriting initiative that supports new writing and encourages the citizens of Ireland and non-Irish citizens living on the island of Ireland, to write plays, engaging people from all communities throughout the country. A PLAY FOR IRELAND is the search for an idea for one, big, ambitious play that bursts with humanity and tackles a subject about which the playwright feels passionate, a play that captures the zeitgeist of the country. The two-year development process will work with playwrights throughout the island of Ireland, and result in the production of a very special new play. Five writers will be chosen to take part in the initiative in each venue, making a total of 30 playwrights, to mark Fishamble’s 30th birthday, in 2018.

 


Draíocht and Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris
ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAMME 2018-2019

Centre Culturel Irlandais’ annual residency programme offers great opportunities for artists of all disciplines to tap into the resources of the CCI and the city of Paris, as well as being an important means of showcasing Ireland's dynamic contemporary culture on an international stage. Draíocht is partnering with CCI by supporting two one month residencies for artists working in any discipline with a clear focus on children and/or young people articulated in their proposal. 
Announced on 29.03.18 ... The 2 artists awarded Residencies are Dan Colley and Mary-Lou McCarthy.

Draíocht and Selma Daniel – Fingal Dance Artist
Draíocht is supporting local dance artist, Selma Daniel, to develop her new piece for children called A-do-le-tá!, a joyous creative and rhythmic dance theatre show about friendship and play. Selma Daniel is a choreographer and a dancer originally from Brazil. She was awarded an MA in Contemporary Dance Performance from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick. With support from Fingal County Council in 2014, she completed the first round of research for this work. This has led to developing a dance theatre show informed by the importance of free play during early childhood. In this phase of the production, Selma is working closely with a set-designer and puppeteer and the relationship between the dancer, the props and performance. Draíocht is delighted to be presenting the work as part of our Autumn 2018 season.

 


Draíocht’s Network Collaborations
ShortWorks & Strollers Touring Networks

Draíocht is an active member of two venue networks.
ShortWorks is a four member Network that focuses on multidisciplinary work for children from 0 to 12 years. 2018 will see this Network continue our relationship with theatre artist, Fionnula Gygax to enable the further development of her theatre piece ‘Boy In A Boat’. ShortWorks is also supporting a development phase of Fidget Feet’s new show ‘Hatch’.
Strollers is a 10 venue nationwide venue Network. An annual Production Award is granted to a company or artist to assist in the making and touring of work. 2018 sees Strollers work with Fishamble: The New Play Company and Pat Kinevane, supporting his new production ‘Before’. This piece will tour to all Stroller venues in Autumn 2018 and will be here in Draíocht from 23-24 November.
 


THE ARTIST PANEL
LOOKING FORWARD: STRATEGIC PLANNING 2018-2022

With the development of The Artist Panel in 2018, Draíocht aims to support a small group of ten artists with whom we have worked over a sustained period of time. Made up of dancers, musicians, visual arts and theatre practitioners, these artists are the backbone of Draíocht’s artistic projects and programming. Through facilitated meetings and invited guests, we will support and nurture these artists by providing time and space to explore, think and reflect on both their personal and facilitative arts practice, consider cross disciplinary engagements and collaborative practices as well as the evaluation of the quality and type of engagement they have with Draíocht’s programmes and with the community of young people whom we serve. A very successful collaborative discussion took place around PLATFORM ’18, an exhibition featuring 21 early career artists in Feb/March 2018.
