Simona Roveda joined us this week (11th - 15th October 2021) as part of our Artist Support scheme, and here's what she had to say:
"This rehearsal week in Draíocht was part of my Artist’s Support Scheme Award by Fingal County Council, as development of my process work for a solo woman clown show project.
I started this process with a mentorship in Italy for two weeks last summer with C’Art Theatre (Florence), to research more material for developing, and I brought it into the rehearsal space to try to build a character for a story from improvisations sketches.
The idea is to create a strong clown character which can make the daily life of a woman into an extraordinary naïve way for connecting with the audience and to share with them her poetic view about humanity."
Draíocht's Artist Support Series helps artists with subsidised or free rehearsal and creative space. Space to rehearse, write, create, film, dance, think & plan ... whatever is needed!
With thanks to our funders Fingal County Council & The Arts Council.
