Drama For Youth Work - Spanish Filming
February 1st-7th 2019, Logroño, Spain
In the first week of February, three young filmmakers from Kildare Youth Theatre ventured off to Logroño, in the north of Spain, to initiate the first stage of our Strategic Partnership Erasmus+ programme with BiondekBühne of Austria, and On+Off Theatre of Spain.
The trip to Spain marked the commencement of a multi-year project involving the brainstorming, filming, editing and production of a network of drama based workshop training videos on dramaforyouthwork.eu.
Our Irish team worked alongside other young European filmmakers through all stages of production.

1st-3rd May 2019, Riverbank Theatre

'The Séance' by Scottish playwright Anthony Neilson is a one-act short play from the National Theatre's Connections collection.
At the end of the summer holidays, seven teenagers get together to hold a séance, complete with Ouija boards, scented candles, and crystal glasses, in the hopes of communicating with the spirit of their dead friend. The play is full of ordinary, subtle dialogue that reveals tensions, relationships, dreams and possibilities.
