There are no words for how incredibly thrilled we are to be recipients of The Arts Council of Ireland’s Bursary Award for Theatre.
This award will allow us to spend dedicated time on intensive research and development in set design theory & technology to advance the quality and scope of future productions. We will be working on furthering our knowledge of contemporary theatre designers, exploring the further potential of projection through mentorship while testing and experimenting with new insights on the stage of An Táin Arts Centre.
This award will give us the rare opportunity to try out and test various possibilities on stage without being part of a stage production. This will give us a comprehensive understanding of how we can develop and push our practice. It will encourage us to walk the boundaries of what is possible and find solutions to what does not work, which in turn will open up new ways of creative thinking and allow us to develop our practice in a more explorative way, free from the context of a tight production schedule.
We are so incredibly grateful to be given support by the Arts Council of Ireland and to An Táin Arts Centre for partnering with us on this year-long development programme.
