Youth Theatre facilitators Emily Matthews along with Eimear Morrissey will continue to lead the group both on line and in Draíocht. Youth Theatre gives young people aged between 14-18 years a space to create, express themselves and explore ideas, every Tuesday evening either in person or on line.

Awaiting Reschedule: The Truth (La Vérité) (2019)

Awaiting Reschedule: The Truth (La Vérité) (2019)

Wed 14 Oct 2020 7.30PM Main Auditorium // €7.50 / €6 conc

Legends of French cinema Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche come together on screen for the first time in ‘The Truth’, Oscar-nominated director Kore-eda Hirokazu’s heartwarming first feature set outside his native Japan. Fabienne (Deneuve) is an ageing French movie icon who, despite her momentary lapses in memory, remains a venerable force to be reckoned with. Upon the publication of her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Binoche) returns to Paris from New York with her husband (played by Ethan Hawke) and their young daughter to commemorate its release. Sparks immediately begin to fly between the mother-daughter duo when Lumir takes issue with Fabienne’s rose-tinted version of the past. Yet, as the past is gradually confronted, their strained relationship takes a poignant journey toward possible reconciliation.

Kore-eda’s charming follow-up to the Palme d’Or-winning ‘Shoplifters’, ‘The Truth’ paints a moving portrait of family dynamics and human relationships, featuring exquisite performances from its all-star cast.

Create Dance Project - Winter 2020

OCT-DEC 2020

Sat 17 Oct - Sat 5 Dec 2020

After spending much of this year’s project in a virtual space, we are looking forward to returning to move and dance together, while also being apart! Create Dance is a fun, innovative dance project, where the dancers love to dance and move and also have an intellectual disability. Dancers and facilitators, Mark Rogers & Conor Donelan, work together with participants and their parents to explore dance and free movement, ending each workshop with the all-important solo dance.

Over the Autumn some of our dancers will begin to work with our 2020 Dance Artist in Residence Jess Rowell on a new piece of choreography. Create Dance will also be collaborating with Lámh  Signs Ireland to create another very special piece of choreography to showcase in early 2021. Due to government restrictions we are currently not accepting new dancers, however if you have a child with a love for dance and an intellectual disability please do get in touch and we can add you to our list for future workshops.

Please get in touch with Paula, paula@draiocht.ie / ph 01 8098029.
During term time, workshops are on Saturdays: Juniors (Age 6-12 yrs) 12.15PM-1.15PM and Seniors (Age 13-17 yrs) 1.30PM-2.30PM. Pre booking for this project is essential.

If you are interested in dance, check out some of Conors FREE dance videos and downloadable worksheets that you can try at home.
