Collapsing Horse - April-August 2017
COLLAPSING HORSE – THEATRE ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE 2016/2017
In February Collapsing Horse continued working with Draíocht’s very talented and dedicated D15 Youth Theatre. Last year we worked with puppetry and the idea that theatre is a combination of ‘illusion and the thing you can't fake’. This year, participants will be working with Choreographer, Liv O'Donoghue and Collapsing Horse Director, Dan Colley to explore movement, expression and storytelling. We'll be asking; What can be communicated through the movement of the body that can't be communicated through words? What does it feel like to dance and to watch people dancing? And how can we create beautiful, interesting and moving choreography ourselves?
This is all just the start of a year of activity which will include workshops for primary school students, rehearsals of our new show The Water Orchard, the beginnings of a Dance/Theatre piece for children and performances of Collapsing Hose shows from our repertoire.
The Collapsing Horse Draíocht Residency is supported by Fingal County Council and the Arts Council.
