Collapsing Horse - September-December 2017
COLLAPSING HORSE – THEATRE ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE 2016-2018
Draíocht is delighted to continue working with Collapsing Horse as Theatre Artists in Residence during 2017-2018.
Their work with D15 Youth Theatre over the mid-term with choreographer Liv O'Donoghue explored areas of dance, movement and choreography in theatre. Later this year they will be working with Liv and D15 Youth Theatre again, this time to develop a new Collapsing Horse dance/theatre show for teenagers called ‘Dance Plague’, inspired by the dancing plagues of the middle ages.
Collapsing Horse, the makers of ‘MONSTER/CLOCK’; ‘Distance from the Event’; ‘Bears in Space’; ‘The Aeneid’ and ‘Conor: at the end of the Universe’, recently presented their brand new comedy show in Project Arts Centre, ‘The Water Orchard’.
‘One of Collapsing Horse’s strengths is its commitment to theatrical fundamentals … executed with wit and skill … there’s no shortage of emotion, intricacy or craft … One of the finest groups of artists to emerge in recent years’.
‘One of the most exciting collectives on the Irish theatre scene.’
The Collapsing Horse Draíocht Residency is supported by Fingal County Council and The Arts Council.
