WHAT WE DO
Our activities include weekly drama workshops, rehearsals and performances of plays; devising and making new performances; actor-training; research into theatre and young people; and international youth theatre projects. We run a small space in Newbridge where we work with over 100 young
people weekly. We also travel to schools and youth
projects in County Kildare every week to run free
theatre programmes with young people.
We run the following:
Kildare Youth Theatre for young people aged 11 to 20 (funded by Kildare County Council and Kildare Wicklow ETB).
The Dréimire Project to prepare young people from under-privileged backgrounds and under-represented groups to audition for acting college (funded by the Irish Arts Council).
European Solidarity Corps - a year-long volunteer programme for international actors aged 18 to 30 (funded by the European Union);
Outreach Drama - free, weekly drama programmes for schools and youth groups in the East Midlands
Young Performers' Agency for anyone aged 11 to 30, preparing and supporting young people to audition for screen and theatre
We manage several international theatre resource projects (funded by the EU). We have collaborated with European theatres since 2002 to develop educational and performance projects with groups of multicultural young people.
