A quick introduction to the students about what it is I'm doing here. (*Thanks for the photos Maeve Clancy maeveclancy.com/, Maeve is the wonderful Visual Artist in Residence)
Meeting the BED1 students
February always feels like the real beginning of a new year to me. Beginning things in January holds too much pressure. I prefer to ease my way in.
By that token I am now starting 2018 and starting plans and schemes for new work.
Since October I have been Theatre Artist in Residence in Mary Immaculate College in Limerick, co funded by Mary I, Belltable and the Arts Council.
Thus far my residency has consisted of meeting as many of the student teachers as possible and figuring out how I can best engage with them, now it is time to hit the ground running.
This term I hope work with Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen to develop it as a work for young audiences. I am focusing on the script and am breaking away from the visuals to create a play for voices!
